Gir National Park in Monsoon (July - October)

The monsoon season from June to October is best avoided as you'll miss seeing the real beauty of Gir National Park. The protected area of Gir National Park closes every year from 16th June to 15th October. This is the period when the south-west monsoon hits making the whole place muddy and marshy, almost making it impossible for a safari. However, the scenic beauty of the place is exceptionally mesmerising during this time of the year, but the rain will definitely hinder your experience in spotting animals and birds, and you might also not be able to indulge in a safari ride to explore the National Park. Keeping all these factors in mind, the monsoon season should be avoided while planning a trip to Gir National Park.
