What is the best time to visit Varanasi?
Winter (November – February) is the greatest time to visit Varanasi since the temperature is mild and there is a gentle wind all day. Varanasi experiences extremely hot and dry summers. Summer is best avoided because it is hot, dry, and sunny, making outdoor sightseeing difficult. The monsoons offer a welcome change, with moderate to heavy rains, whereas the winters are the greatest time to visit Varanasi, thanks to the wonderful weather conditions
that greatly enhance its splendor.
Though you can embark on a spiritual journey to Varanasi at any time of year, keep in mind that the summers in Varanasi endure a long time (from April to October) and the temperature is usually around 30°C, with temperatures reaching 45°C during peak summers. Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen if you go during this time.
