Mahabaleshwar in Monsoon (July - October)

Monsoons in Mahabaleshwar are torrential and extensive. The temperature during the monsoon months of July to September ranges from 20 to 25 degree Celsius. This means that the climate during the monsoons is wet, cold and often misty. The roads to Mahabaleshwar may often be slippery as well so individuals should proceed with caution when visiting the hill station. Another disadvantage to travelling during the monsoon season is the fact that continuous rainfall makes it difficult for outdoor activities to function and thus many of them are kept closed throughout the season. However, treks are a marvellous way to spend time during monsoons as the entire place is covered in trees which give out a luscious green lustre that is hugely refreshing. The waterfalls and lakes are filled to the brim as well and must not be missed in this season.
