Khajuraho in Monsoon (July - September)

Khajuraho experiences monsoon season between July and September. The cold showers surely help in bringing down the high temperature of the summer season and makes the whole place looks lush green. But the weather remains humid which makes it not an ideal time to take a trip to Khajuraho. Adventure activities are mostly shut down during monsoons hence trekking or taking a leisure stroll will be a tedious task.
