Mysore Weather And Best Time To Visit Mysore
Mysore is an all-year tourist destination in South India. Summers are typically warm and winters are cool, so you could plan a trip to Mysore at anytime of the year, without having to worry about the weather. But the ideal period for a visit to Mysore is from October to March, when the weather is really good for sightseeing and outdoor adventures, since you should be pretty sure you’re not confined to your room due to a humid or rainy day. Explained below are the many seasons that Mysore sees and how they affect your tourism prospects.
Summer months are moderately hot with the average temperature going between 22-39°C. The days could be hot and sunny but bearable. May is the hottest month of the year but the weather turns cool after the time of sunset and remains so up until sunrise. Put on some sunglasses and scoop a hat, wear light cottons and carry your water bottle. This is the best time to check out the summer's blooms in the fields.
You get moderate rainfall, and that’s decently safe to venture out for sightseeing and photography. Intermittent rains may throw a wet blanket in if you plan on pursuing adventure sports like trekking, skydiving or a long trip through the city. If at all it rains, relax in your lounge chair, watching the rain, with a hot cup of coffee and a piping hot Mysore bonda. Temperature averages 19-29°C.
