Trip Planning FAQs
What is the best time to visit Rajasthan?
The best time for your Rajasthan tour package is from mid-October to mid-March. Rajasthan has a humid and hot climate as 60% of its area is occupied by the That Desert. Arranging your Rajasthan holiday package in the Summer is not a sensible choice as the highest temperature reaches 48℃ (118℉) in summer (from April to June). Winter (from October to March) has a more enjoyable climate and is the most popular season for travelers.
