Ahmedabad in Winter (December - February)

Winters in Ahmedabad are peak season for travel as the weather is pleasant with temperatures ranging between 5 and 20° celsius. Many seasonal open-air restaurants come alive during this time. The famous International Kite Festival is also one of the major tourist-magnets during the winters.

Ahmedabad in Monsoon (July - October)

The monsoons in Ahmedabad are humid with an average rainfall of 93.2 cm. However, this season often brings in heavy torrential rains, thus flooding the river Sabarmati. Monsoons in the city not only cool the land down, but they also bring along several festivals along with lip-smacking street food. There is an influx of tourists during Navratri in Ahmedabad which is annually held towards the end of October.

Ahmedabad in Summer (March-August)

Ahmedabad is generally a hot and dry place during the summer with the day temperature oscillating between 43 - 47° celsius. It is quite an unpleasant time for tourism as the mercury can hit 50º C as well. Summers are generally a low season in Ahmedabad, thus attracting fewer tourists. Travel and booking costs drop during this time as well.
