Guwahati Weather And Best Time To Visit Guwahati
Located in the North Eastern state of Assam, Guwhati is popular among tourists for its scenic beauty and serene surroundings. It offers loads of attractions to travellers to be savoured at different times of the year. While the best time to visit Guwhati is from October to April, the city can be explored at other times too for different experiences. Read on to find out Guwahati's weather for each season.
Summer (April to May)
Summers in Guwhati are hot and humid with temperatures ranging between 30°C-40°C. While mornings are sultry, summer evenings in the city are quite pleasant. The major attraction during these months is the Rongali or Bohag Bihu that is celebrated in April. Bihu is the major festival observed and celebrated in Assam and Bohag Bihu is one of the three that is held every year. It is preferable however not to make travel plans during summer as it would be difficult to explore the city under the scorching sun.
Monsoon (June to September)
Guwahati experiences moderate to heavy rainfall. There isn’t much to do during these months as there are water loggings in several places and forest safaris too remain closed. You can, however, enjoy the natural scenic beauty in the rains.
Winter (October to March)
This is undoubtedly the best time to visit and explore Guwahati. Winters are chilly with the minimum temperatures hovering around 5°C. Forest safaris remain open during these months. This period also experiences two Bihu festivals; the Kongali or Kati Bihu in October and Bhogali or Magh Bihu in January. These festivals offer an insight into the culture and life of the Assamese people as they indulge in revelry and merrymaking.
