Mudumalai National Park Weather And Best Time To Visit Mudumalai National Park
The regions of the National Park and Tiger Reserve of Mudumalai have salubrious round the year seasons. Summers don’t get too hot nor do monsoons flood, but you need to look for a season that facilitates an easy travel and sightseeing tour and some of the best periods to spot wildlife. The onset of winter i.e from November to the warm months of summer till June is the most idyllic time to visit Mudumalai, with great weather and tourism prospects.
Summer (March – May)
Summers are dry, with hot days and pleasant nights. The deciduous trees have begun shedding their foliage and the animals, the big game, if you are lucky, gather at the water holes. There might be the rare mango showers, but they help to perk up the greenery. Summer makes the forest hot, but is the ideal time to venture into the jungle on a safari to watch the animals. Carry your camera along to photo shoot the orange - red Flame of the Forest flowers that burst into summer blooms!
Monsoon (June - November)
Monsoon showers are not torrential. There are occasional, intermittent showers that do enliven the atmosphere to no end. The western region gets rainfall during the southwest monsoon from June to September, while the eastern sides receive the northeast monsoon showers from October to November. It’s quite a charming season, but you might be unable to go on safaris, if the rain clouds gather. Monsoon is the mating season and you could find peacocks putting on a spectacular show for their mates. Northeast monsoon rains patter away by November.
Winter (December – February)
The days are pleasant, with clear blue skies and misty mornings. Nights are cold and it wouldn’t do any harm if you carry sweaters along if you are going to stay in the resorts in Mudumalai during winter. When sharp nippy mornings clear up, you can see a variety of forest dwelling birds that have migrated in for winter. Ideally, this is the best time to visit Mudumalai.
