Nagarhole National Park Weather And Best Time To Visit Nagarhole National Park
The Nagarhole National Park in Karnataka has extensive woodlands, with seasonal variations to the landscape that are so delightfully welcome as they make a vacation to the Park really a year round affair. Further, streams, waterfalls, perennial lakes, manmade watering holes and swamps make the park vibrant throughout the year. But the best time to visit Nagarhole National Park would be in winter, from November to February, when the weather’s just right for sightseeing.
It’s quite hot with the deciduous forests of the drier regions shedding their leaves for summer. The waterholes get dry and you can wait near saltlicks to see the animals amble out in search of water. The weather gets hotter by May. Venture out with wide brimmed hats, sunglasses and plenty of water.
With the number of trees and streams, there’s bound to be incessant rains that might make travel across the forests a little hard. Safaris might get cancelled due to the rains. Otherwise, Nagarhole Park during the monsoon is luxuriantly lush and is one of the next best seasons to visit the park.
Days are reasonably warm during winter, while nights could be cold. But this is the best time for jungle safaris, outdoor activities and wildlife photography. The forest looks spectacular after the recent rains, with birds migrating in for the winter. Winter turns the backwaters of the Kabini river magical. The misty vapour rising from the waters on early winter mornings seem ethereal!
