Mount Abu Weather And Best Time To Visit Mount Abu
Mount Abu is a beautiful hill station in the barren deserts and arid landscapes of Rajasthan. Located atop a mountainous plateau of the Sahyadris, Mount Abu was meant as a retreat for Rajput rulers during the scorching summers of their capital. It later became a cooling place to enjoy vacations by British officers. This means that since time immemorial Mount Abu’s weather has been stellar almost all year long. However, we have a little snippet here to talk about the best time to visit.
Summer (April - June)
Mount Abu is known for its summer get-away spirit, and welcomes weary souls tired of desert heat. The temperature at this time vacillates between 23°C - 33°C and June is the hottest month. The mornings are pleasant, afternoons hot and evenings cool. But being dry and mist-free this is the best time for outdoor actives and adventures like rock-climbing, camping, trekking, boating etc. Gangaur may be celebrated in the month of April, so again a good time to enjoy some local festivities.
Monsoon (July - September)
Monsoon in Mount Abu is wet and very lush. The rains may be frequent, but that does not mean you cannot plan a trip to enjoy the weather. Of course, most adventure activities might be closed for the season but you can just chill in your resort or head to one of the temples or the lake to breathe in the view. Waterfalls are also great at this time, swollen and gushing.
Winter (October - March)
November is officially the beginning of winter in Mount Abu, though October does have a nip in the air. The temperature goes to as low as 12°C in December and January and this is the best time to go for wildlife safaris, camping and boating. Due to fog and mist up in the hilly areas, hikes and treks are best avoided. So if you are a sucker for these activities and like some cold then winter should be your best bet.
