Chikmagalur Weather And Best Time To Visit Chikmagalur
The mist hugging peaks of the Western Ghats, the pleasurable gentle wind and the luxuriant shrubbery that spreads like a carpet over the landscape - all make Chikmagalur a year round destination in Karnataka But for an overall package of tourist experience, you need the perfect season and we'll tell you about the ideal time for a trip to Chikmagalur. Though monsoon months are also suitable for a visit, the best months would be from September to May, i.e during winter and summer, when the weather is at its best in Chikmagalur.
Though its summer and the temperatures go up to a hot 35°C, the elevation the town lies in and the flora keeps the place pleasant and breezy enough for a travel. Summer's one of the best times to visit Chikmagalur. The stimulating scent of the aromatic white coffee blossoms waft through the summer air. The season is crowded in Chikmagalur as tourists arrive at the picturesque town to get away from the oppressive heat elsewhere.
The rains might be heavy, and you might spend more time by the window watching the downpour while sipping a steaming cup of Chikmagalur’s coffee. Although that sounds tempting enough, the rains turns the hillsides slushy and activities like trekking trips might have to be put off. But the waterfalls and lakes are swollen, and at their seasonal best. Monsoon season tapers off by October and November, turning the landscape fresh and fertile for dry winter. Average temperature would be from 18-26°C.
Yet another good time for Chikmagalur’s coffee, winter is marvellous in this region. The cool, pleasant and breezy weather of winter, coupled with the town’s peak wrapped in a blanket of mist makes it all the more alluring. Winter's dry, normally misty sky, with patches of clear, sunny rays during the day is a sight to behold. It is again an ideal time to visit Chikmagalur and to go trekking or exploring the wilderness for hidden waterfalls and streams. The region turns magically beautiful after the rains. Temperature averages 14-32°C.
