Jaisalmer is known for being out in the desert and a lot of the things you can do in Jaisalmer are based on it. Tourists from around the world come to enjoy the city and it is famous for camel safaris on the sand.

Monsoon Season in Jaisalmer

September-October - The monsoon in Jaisalmer is a relatively short season. The rainfall that this region receives is sparse and even in some of those days, it doesn't rain. Also, after the first few showers of rain, it adds humidity to the already hot climate. It is hard to imagine anything topping summer in Jaisalmer in terms of temperature, but the heat only gets worse to deal with when humidity is added to it. It should be noted though, that October is when the season changes and everything starts cooling down.<readmore> This also heralds the start of the tourist season again. Tourists can take a gamble on Jaisalmer weather in October as there is a chance that they might get good weather without the crowd that it is usually accompanied by.



Winter Season in Jaisalmer

November-March: The months between November and March are the winter months in Jaisalmer and this can be described as the ideal time to visit Jaisalmer. All the desert related activities and sights can be best enjoyed during these months as the weather is downright pleasant. With a maximum of 24 degree Celsius and a minimum of 5 degree Celsius, the Jaisalmer weather in December and January is pretty enjoyable, although it can get a little too cold sometimes. Winter season in Jaisalmer is also the best time to visit for couples on their honeymoon. There are not many experiences that feel as romantic as camping under a starry sky. The cold weather makes it ideal for a cozy vacation spent together enjoying the destination and a partner’s company. The Desert Festival is also during the month of February, usually, making Jaisalmer in winter a delight to visit. Due to all of these things though, Jaisalmer is thick with tourists at this time and everything is just that little more expensive.
