Assam in Summer (April - June)

The summer season is the most popular with tourists as the widest range of activities are open. The temperature averages around 30 to 35 degrees Celcius and the climate is pleasant. Lower temperatures are present earlier in the summer till April, and the highest temperature is seen during May. Summer is also the best time to visit the national parks and wildlife sanctuaries since animals are drawn towards waterholes to escape from the heat.

Assam in Monsoon (July - September)

Monsoon lasts from July to September and temperatures are slightly lower than in summer averaging at 28 to 32 degrees Celcius. There are frequent heavy showers as well as storms across the state and this can cause issues with travel and may restrict the number of activities tourists can do. The presence of multiple river basins also leads to frequent flooding of the low-lying areas that border the river. It is best to avoid the monsoons.

Assam in Winter (October - March)

Winter is the most pleasant time to visit Assam since the temperature is very comfortable, ranging between 6 and 8 degrees Celsius. The fog that surrounds cities early in the morning is an incredible sight and winter also gives tourists the chance to visit forests in their full bloom. This is the perfect season for adventure activities like trekking and camping as well as sightseeing. A variety of festivals are also held during the winter months and can be an enjoyable cultural experience.
