Umananda Island Weather And Best Time To Visit Umananda Island
The most ideal time to visit Umanada Island is from October through April, when the place is experiencing a humid subtropical climate or during the festivals of Bihu to witness the vibrant, distinct and exciting culture of Assam. The average temperature here varies a bit, and given the humidity level, the temperature’s usually hot for almost 6 months in a year with a fair chance of rainfall during the rest of the year. The warmest part of the year is June through August when the temperature’s usually at 34°C at a maximum and 26°C on the minimum side. Given its location, the busiest time to visit the Island is July, May and November, during which time lodging & accommodation may be expensive but the weather is just beautiful.
The combined levels of humidity and temperature make the spring season rather warm here in Umananda, with the maximum temperature going up to 33°C, and getting warmer in the latter months. Rainfall usually ranges between 3 to 12 days in a month, making spring the second busiest time of the year, from a tourism perspective. It is also an ideal time to enjoy outdoor activities, so you can consider spring for a holiday; especially those with kids on vacation from school.
June through August experiences comfortable weather with temperatures on the higher side, making it warmer. Summers usually experience about 11 to 15 days of rainfall every month, slowing down the incoming tourist traffic, also leading accommodation and other travel fares to be pocket-friendly. The Bohag Bihu is celebrated in April and marks the advent of a new year in Assam, also signifying harvesting time historically.
September through November has temperatures oscillating between 33°C-28°C, giving off a pleasant feel, despite the humidity and wind level. With a significant amount of rainfall of 1-9 days each month, tourism is at its peak during fall, so travel may turn out to be an expensive proposition during this time. You can look forward to enjoying the Bihu celebrations in September-October here when the Kangali/Kati Bihu is observed.
Winter at the Island may not be so welcoming for warm-weather visitors, as the average high during this time ranges between 29°C to 23°C, with rainfall being next to none during December through February. The incoming tourist traffic is minimal during winters at Peacock Island. The minimum temperature is approx. 5°C and it is best to carry warm clothes and woolens with you, along with an umbrella to guard against any rare rainfall.
