October brings a sheer range of weather zones to our country. Ladakh and Uttarakhand receive snowfall in North India, while the retreating monsoon strikes Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Apart from the weather, national & cultural festivals would be the most important factor that demands much attention while choosing the best time to visit India. Yes, October has a lot of celebrations and festivals. You can visit Shimla, Manali, Rishikesh, Dharamsala, and other surroundings. You can even enjoy clear views and great hikes. In Rajasthan, tourists can enjoy overnight desert safaris with a camel ride. Furthermore, the desert state has several local fun events happening in the month of October including the International Folk festival and Marwar festival that offers camel trading, folk arts, races, and music too.
Kerala gets a surplus amount of rain during October, which is not a perfect time to visit beaches, yet have fun in the mountains. The climate in Karnataka is almost similar to Kerala. However, there is little rainfall. Therefore, you can have a backpacking tour in South India. In Tamil Nadu, try to avoid east coast places like Mahabalipuram, Chennai, and Pondicherry in October. You can doubtlessly have a better time at the beaches of Goa. As said above, October is a festival month so that you have to plan your trip beforehand to enjoy an exciting and authentic experience.
