More about Best Time to Travel to Kanatal

Kanatal in Summer (April - June)

The summers in Kanatal, like most summer months in India, are the hottest months. However, in this quaint hill station, the months from March to June too are cold and windy. The summer heat in Kanatal ranges from around 25 degree Celsius to 38 degree Celsius and is exceptionally short-lived. Even during this heat, the moist winds, as well as drastic temperature drop at night, brings forth an excellent reprise for the visitors of Kanatal. Summer is also the ideal month for going on treks and exploring the wealth of flora and fauna that Kanatal has to offer.

Kanatal in Winter (October - March)

Winters are the best and most ideal time to visit Kanatal due to its chilling temperatures and abundance of festivals that are celebrated with utmost reverence and joy. The temperature during October to February ranges from around 1 degree Celsius to 15 degree Celsius which makes carrying woollen, thick clothes a necessity. These months also see a considerable lot of snowfall and the entire town looks miraculous under the thick blanket of snow. The festival of Dussehra which celebrates one of the most epic Hindu mythologies is one of the many festivals celebrated during the winters. However, Dussehra is celebrated with such awe and joy that it sometimes overpowers other festivals in Kanatal. Dussehra lasts for ten days in October and brings together some fairs, plays and other social activities.

Kanatal in Monsoon (July - September)

The monsoon season in Kanatal, consisting of July and August, is perhaps the worst season to visit the hill station as a tourist. Although Kanatal receives rainfall only in these two months, its average rainfall is as high as 700mm annually, which means that July and August not only receive heavy rains, but these rains are also in the form of continuous downpours which show no sign of stopping. September may be a great time to witness the beauty of these rains and the lush green effect of Kanatal’s natural surroundings with minimum amounts of showers, but these two months should be avoided. The road to Kanatal is also robbed off of visibility and clarity due to these rains. It also increases the chances of cloudburst and landslides, hence the place must be avoided during the rainy season.
