Best Time To Visit Rishikesh

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Although it is an all-year-round destination, the best time to visit Rishikesh is from February to mid-May when the weather is very pleasant. The peak season to visit Rishikesh is during the summer season when people can indulge in white water rafting and other adventure activities along with attending Yoga Festival that falls in March. However, the winter season can also be a good time to enjoy snowfall in Rishikesh.

Best Time to Visit Rishikesh for Tourist Activities:

Rishikesh has earned a reputation for being one of the best camping and rafting destinations in the world. The best time to visit Rishikesh for river rafting is October-November and March through May. Between June and September rafting in Rishikesh is closed due to monsoon. Rafting season in Rishikesh resumes every year when river level comes back to normal after the monsoon season. The weather in Rishikesh in December is not ideal for rafting as the water level is too low. Make sure to follow instructions while rafting to avoid any kind of rafting accident in Rishikesh.

Take a look at our month-wise classification to know the best time to visit Rishikesh.

March - June (15°C to 40°C):

It is quite hot and humid during the summer season in Rishikesh, i.e. March to June. Though, one can indulge in adventurous activities during the early summers, i.e. at the month of March; April and June months experience high temperature, making it not a good time to be here.

However, yoga enthusiasts flock here to attend the Yoga Festival and partake in adventure sports at this time of the year.

July - September (25°C to 35°C):

Albeit, due to religious events, there is a rush of tourists during the months of June to September, i.e. the monsoon season, it cannot be an ideal period for a tour to Rishikesh. For. August is the hottest month, and thus, one cannot enjoy adventurous activities, like: trekking, hiking and rafting.

October - February (20°C to 6°C):

Here comes the best time to visit Rishikesh, i.e. during the months of October to February. Though, the month of January is the coldest one, the weather is quite pleasant and not severely chilly to resist tourists from enjoying sightseeing and adventure activities, like rock climbing.

Climate in Rishikesh

Summer Season in Rishikesh

Summer is the best time to visit Rishikesh, both for those in pursuit of spiritual guidance and thrilling experiences. The snow on the  mountains begin to melt, filling the rivers, and creating rapids and streams which are an attraction point for adventure lovers.  

The flora and the fauna during these months are in full bloom, making the town a gorgeous backdrop and this period as the best time to visit Rishikesh for honeymoon. Be it the spiritual believers or adventure seekers, this is certainly the best time to go Rishikesh as one gets to have all kinds of experiences.

Monsoon Season in Rishikesh

The monsoon brings with it many festivals, which take place in the temples around Rishikesh. Festivals like Sawan make it the best time to go Rishikesh for those who visit with an aim of soaking in the colours and the flavours of the town.

Since the rivers begin to flood, adventure activities during this season close down leading to a decline in tourism. And so, the hotels and resorts drop their prices or offer varied discounts, which makes monsoon in Rishikesh definitely a must visit time for budget travelers.

Winter Season in Rishikesh

The winters in Rishikesh are an ideal time to witness the natural beauty of the region, especially for rock climbers and trekkers. Those who have a brave heart can venture into the freezing waters to indulge in rafting on the rapids dotting the Ganges. Rafting in Rishikesh in December is not recommended as the water level recedes in the winter season.

    Traveller's 3 days trip to Rishikesh

    Trip was good but very poorly managed by Travel agent. He changed the described cottage stay at last moment to a lower one - increasing his overall profits. Driver was not finalized till 10:00 pm one day before. Provided hotel vouchers after repeated follow ups. During the entire booking process he
    was trying to extract more and more money. Speaks too much but delivery is not up the mark. Friendly cottage staff
