Kotagiri in Winter (October - February)

Kotagiri witnesses a high amount of tourist gathering in winters. When the mercury stays high in most of the cities and towns in southern India, Kotagiri being a hill station is the perfect escape, amidst salubrious climate. The temperatures are comfortably cold and ranges between 9 degrees C to 19 degrees C. The roads are wide with a breathtaking landscape to watch out for, making a memorable driving experience. You will be woken up by the rhythmic chirps of winter migratory birds during your stay and be greeted by bison when you visit the tea plantations. Carry heavy woollen clothes as days can get chilly. You can also take a day's trip to Ooty, which is only an hour long drive away; however, the place will be much more crowded.

There's a charm in Kotagiri's secludedness that would make you want to spend all your time over there and not get back to reality!

Kotagiri in Monsoon (July - September)

The already laid-back town of Kotagiri becomes more relaxed as the Monsoon season hits. Thus, not an ideal time to visit the place. That being said, as summer is not the peak season, you can get good discounts on accommodations ? best time to visit for bargain hunters and backpackers. The best thing to do during this season is to light the firewood, prepare some local tea, grab a book (or your partner's hand) and spend a cosy day indoors as the sound of rains and smell of fresh mud add to the experience. You can go out for a stroll and also witness some waterfalls (Catherine Waterfalls) in the area when the rains stop.

Kotagiri in Summer (March - June)

The temperatures during summer range from 25 degrees C to 35 degrees C. The weather is warmer considered to other hill resorts. Which also means more sunshine and spectacular views to look forward to. Spend the afternoons unwinding in a cottage and go out for walks or bicycle rides when the sun starts to set. Sunsets here are heavenly. Perfect to rejuvenate the mind, body, and the soul. You can see a beautiful stretch of hills and tea plantations in the distance. Carry light woollen clothes. This is the best time for budget travellers, who can expect huge fall in prices.
