Dandeli Weather And Best Time To Visit Dandeli
A hill side town with an enchanting,misty landscape and a plethora of activities like water sports, trekking, mountain biking, or canoeing needs a perfect climate, and the right season to woo tourists over. Dandeli in Karnataka has moderately good climatic conditions and plenty of things to keep travellers happily occupied; all of which make the place an all year tourist spot.
But since even ventures like water sports, travel and most predominantly bird watching which are some of the most best things that Dandeli has to offer, need the right season, it would be perfect to travel to Dandeli from winter to summer, i.e from October to May, when the weather is idyllically perfect and you can tour around to your heart's content.
Summer is moderately hot in Dandeli. It’s the second best ideal time to visit Dandeli, as tourists arrive at the hill station in summer to escape the sweltering heat of summer in the cities. Neverthless, Dandeli is not very crowded during summer and you have plenty of space to do your own exploring and sightseeing. It’s the right time to see the wildlife of Dandeli, as the animals amble out in search of water and of course, the many birds that flock to the rivers in the wildlife sanctuary, make for a beautiful sight. Summer temperature averages 20°C -34°C, with May as the hottest month of the year. There might be occasional rain showers, so keep your umbrellas handy.
Monsoon rains are quite heavy and this period is off season for tourism in Dandeli. Most of the water based sports would be cancelled, taking away some fun from your visit and you might be spending a lot of time watching the rains from the homestay!
But the rains do turn the landscape so luxuriously green and make the lakes brim over, that you might try taking a visit to Dandeli in monsoon. It’s said that Dandeli is the right place in monsoon for the romantics at heart, but not for bird watchers! Keep raincoats and umbrellas handy. Temperature averages 21°C -28°C.
Winter is the most ideal time to visit Dandeli. Months from the tail end of winter i.e. January, February to March as summer rings in, are ideal for bird watching. You can go white water rafting in Kali River, trekking or visiting the gushing waterfalls, rain fed by the monsoon showers. Days in winter are pleasant and breezy, while nights can be pretty cold, so arm yourself with woollens and suitable nightwear. Temperature averages 16°C -30C°, with January being the coldest month of the year .
