You will also get to witness some colorful festivities as most of the festivals in Rajasthan are also organized during this period. Depending on the weather and local festivals, the best time to visit Rajasthan varies as per the particular destination.
Winter, from November through February, remains the best season to visit Rajasthan. There are some fairs and festivals in Rajasthan in December, for instance, Shilpgram Festival in Udaipur. During monsoon season, Rajasthan in August can be a pretty sight; especially when the hills of Aravali are greener and hill stations have idyllic weather. Mount Abu, Udaipur, Kumbhalgarh, and Kota are popular places to visit even in the monsoon season.
You can easily plan a visit to the desert during this period as the days are not too hot and the night temperatures are quite cool.

This may not be the best time to visit Rajasthan as the days are hot and humid with average temperatures rising right up to an extreme of 45°C. It is not advisable to visit the Thar desert in this season, as the weather is too humid and hot. If you want to escape the gruelling summer heat, the best place to visit in Rajasthan is the hill station Mount Abu where the weather is always pleasant.
Monsoon Season in Rajasthan
The monsoon season in this beautiful state begins in July and continues right till September. To enjoy the monsoon season to the fullest, one should head to the beautiful town of Udaipur. This “Venice of the East” dawns a beautiful hue in this rainy season which can be seen in the City Palace, Sajjangarh Fort aka Monsoon Palace, and Fateh Sagar Lake.

Sanjay's 3 days trip to RajasthanI recommended 3 star hotel...but I doubt...it didn't look like! Cab drivers n all travel was good!
Sathyanarayanan's 5 days trip to RajasthanNot worthy for money spent. Mostly we are in car travel. Poor time management, planning . Tiger reserve Safari
Anita's 6 days trip to RajasthanThe coordination by Aapka tripwala has been exemplary. They were always available whenever intervention was needed.They have a personalised approach which is commendable. Coming to hotels, we stayed at Souvenir Peppermint at Jaipur and they offered a very comfortable and hassle free stay with all needed amenities. Sri Ram Excellency was not to our satisfaction and they do not even provide basic requirements like a hair dryer and the place permanently smells of stale cigarette smoke. The breakfast though, was good. Heritage Juma camp was good and they took care of our requirements. The cab driver was good and he knew the terrain. The trip was generally good, but for a couple of hiccups, but that is not an issue, as the agent (Mr.Chirag Jain) of Aapka tripwala was quite proactive.
Bhaktaranjan's 10 days trip to RajasthanThanks to Travel Triangle and his tour agents Ganesham tour and travels india ltd.for excellent trips arrangements by the team.I Will definitely recommend your travel agent to all my friends.Food quality to be improved in hotel Tokeyoo at jaisalmer.
Shrilatha's 6 days trip to RajasthanI would like to start on a positive note , we did enjoy the trip and the best part of the trip was the desert camp at jaisalmer. I would agree that all the hotel rooms were neat and comfortable with our stay. On the other hand, we wasted time at Jaipur and the sightseeing at Jaipur recommended was worthless as all the 3 places were just ok roadside and could be covered easily in roughly one hour . The tripadvisor did not recommend that we visit amer fort which was worth place to visit at Jaipur . Moreover the cab drivers had some tieups with local shopkeepers at Jaipur and misguided is to shop first which took most of our time and they were really reluctant to get us to do sight seeing . In fact they took commission even at the restaurants. We could cover udaipur in half a days time and frankly there was nothing much to do there and it was just a city with a lake and not recommended at all not worth the 12 hours of travel from jaisalmer. The desert camp at jaisalmer was the best highlight of the trip and our families had a good time and taste of Rajasthan
Grkadekar's 6 days trip to RajasthanThe overall service was good. And all the arrangements made was good .hotels was very good.one comments about the hotels was the Vinayak desert camp though it was good , we were given tent with out geyser. We were not knowing about this. Even if we have to pay for tgat , the availability of the same should have been told to us. Once again over all experience was very good . I definitely recommend both travel triangle and asiago travels....govind

Avinash's 10 days trip to RajasthanKingsland Holidays was my best choice when it comes to Rajasthan tourism. They arranged the itinerary and trip beautiful without any trouble. The rooms given were amazing and we had an amazing time. Rohit and Mohit from the team were very helpful and was constantly in touch with me to make sure everything was going smoothly. Our driver Vikas was a smart localite who showed us around everywhere. 5 Starts for the whole team. Thank you guys for an amazing Trip. Thank you Rajasthan.:)
Suman's 5 days trip to Rajasthanjaisalmer was overall very beautiful experience . we would have been more comfortable if the agent would have worked more on our itinerary and have asked for our food preferences. we could hardly spend time in jodhpur and kept rushing from one place to another.
