Ranthambore in Winter (October-March)

Perhaps the perfect time to take a trip to the Ranthambore National Park, the months between October and March experience pleasant weather, complete with clusters of flowers that adorn the landscape beautifully. If you are planning your trip sometime between late December and early January, however, be prepared with warm woollen clothes to keep you cosy during the cold weather. The temperatures range between 10 degree Celsius and 27 degree Celsius. Apart from the tiger safaris, make sure to head out to the Ranthambore Fort, Malik Talao, and Kachida Valley, all of which lay within the reserve itself, the latter being home to numerous migratory birds as well as panthers. Ganesh Trinetra Temple, Lakarda and Anantpura, Wild Dragon Adventure Park, Dastkar Ranthambore, and Rajiv Gandhi Regional Museum of Natural History are some of the other places that you should add to your itinerary.

Ranthambore in Monsoon (July-September)

The Ranthambore National Park remains closed during the monsoon months of July to September. Hence, these months are a no-no to visit the area during the rainy season.

Ranthambore in Summer (April-June)

Since Ranthambore is nestled in Rajasthan, the summer months, starting from April to June, receive unbearable dry heat as the direct rays of the sun hit the area. However, if you think you shall remain unperturbed by the extreme temperatures, which may even go up to 36 degree Celsius, then it is the best time to visit this reserve since it is during these months that you are most likely to luck out and spot the majestic tigers, along with several other animals. Make sure to keep a scarf with you, apply huge dollops of sunscreen, and stay hydrated all the time. To avoid the direct rays of the sun, try to wear full-sleeved cotton clothes. You may also sit and relax by the enrapturing Surwal Lake, visit the grand Jogi Mahal nestled near the Padam Lake, or take a trip to Raj Bagh Talao, with the Raj Bagh Ruins in its backdrop.
