Mandu in Monsoon (July - September)

You can plan an excellent off-season trip to Mandu from July to September as the hotel prices lower down. The crowd is minimal, and the rainfall in Mandu is average. Since Mandu is situated on the Malwa plateau, it experiences a tropical climate. During the rainy season, the surroundings look greener and fresh. But due to its tropical climate, the humidity rises. However, nature lovers and photographers can visit Mandu during monsoon to capture it at its best.

Mandu in Summer (April - June)

During the summers, the temperature varies from 30 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius. Summers in Mandu start from March and last until June. The blazing sun and scorching heat make it difficult for local sightseeing in Mandu during the summers. Since the city has a lot of grand palaces and monuments of cultural significance, they need to be explored during the day time, but due to the humidity, you could end up being dehydrated. Therefore, it is better to avoid visiting Mandu during summers.
