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.
