Climate in Madhya pradesh

Summer Season in Madhya pradesh

The summer season in Madhya Pradesh starts from late March and lasts till the end of June. The weather starts to become really hot during the day. It is not the ideal time to visit cities in MP such as Indore or Bhopal. However, summer months are suitable for a visit to the Satpura hills. For those looking to beat the heat, March through June is the best time to visit Pachmarhi Madhya Pradesh.  

Owing to the state’s dry topography and being landlocked, the temperatures in Madhya Pradesh during peak summer often reach as high as 45 degree Celsius at several locations. Sightseeing in MP during summer can be extremely uncomfortable and exhausting. Excruciatingly hot weather, in most cities, renders the state unsuitable for travelling.

Although some would argue but, summer season can be a good time to visit wildlife sanctuaries like Pench National Park, Kanha National Park, and Bandhavgarh National Park. The hot weather forces the wildlife including tigers and their prey to come out in open to small lakes and streams to cool themselves down.

Monsoon Season in Madhya pradesh

In July, heavy rainfall and thunderstorms bring in the monsoon season in Madhya Pradesh after scorching summers. The forested hills of Satpura and Vindhya covered with fresh greenery all around add a new vigour to the environs. The monsoon showers in the parched lands of Madhya Pradesh are a true blessing. From July through September, this short-lived season provides a relief with ample amount of rainfall in the various regions of the state. Monsoon showers recede in MP by early October, paving the way for a cooler season. October-November are ideal months to explore attractions in MP such as the temples of Khajuraho, the Sanchi Stupa, and national parks.

From a traveller’s point of view, most of the destinations like national parks should be avoided. However there are a few tourist places in MP which are perfect to explore during monsoon. Dubbed as the Niagara Falls of India, Chitrakoot Falls look absolutely breathtaking with gushing waters falling from a staggering height. Monsoon is a shoulder season for tourism in Madhya Pradesh so travellers can enjoy many discounts and offers on hotel or flight booking. Make sure to drive safely on the wet and slippery roads to traverse remote places of the state.

Winter Season in Madhya pradesh

Do pack warm clothing and woollens, as the MP weather can get really cold. During December and January, mercury level plummets to as low as 5 degrees in the night. Although in the day, sunshine is milder and weather remains perfect for local sightseeing tours. October through March is the ideal time to visit popular destinations in Madhya Pradesh be it the Group of Monuments at Khajuraho, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sanchi, and cities like Bhopal, Indore, and Gwalior.
