Anamalai Tiger Reserve Weather And Best Time To Visit Anamalai Tiger Reserve
Anamalai Tiger Reserve in the Western Ghats has a salubrious all-time weather and is warm throughout the year with a moderately cold winter. Most attractively draped with a lush verdant setting, Anamalai has Shola Forests, grasslands, wet deciduous evergreen forest ranges and perennial rivers and streams that vouch for the pleasing effect of the hill ranges.
Anamalai Tiger Reserve can be visited any time of the year, but the best seasons and weather are from December to June.
Summer (March – May)
Summer is peak tourist season, as the Reserve gets ready for annual vacations at the plains. Summers are warm and dry, though there might be occasional mango showers to freshen up the region and perk up the vegetation that had dried up the preceding winter. You can spot a variety of birds, reptiles, wild boars, leopards and Malabar Giant Squirrels at the streams and rivers that are filled with the summer showers. Summer’s also the best time to watch the migratory path of butterflies from the Western to the Eastern Ghats.
Monsoon (June – November)
Southwest and northeast monsoon rains in on Anamalai ranges. Southwest monsoon from June to September are average, while the northeast or retreating monsoon from October to December is quite heavy and cold, with the streams filling up to the brim. You could travel to Anamalai, for the region does turn beautiful, all wet and misty and photographic, but travelling during the rains, like taking a safari might be a setback.
Winter (December – February)
December sees the beginning of the Forest office getting busy with the post monsoon tiger census in Anamalai. December to March is the time elephants can be spotted in the wilds. The region is dry, cool and misty, fresh after the rains. Keep shawls and sweaters handy and you would have a good time in Anamalai, with elephant and jeep safaris that traverse through the ragged jungle paths.
