Chattisgarh has a moderate climate through most of the year and the best time to visit depends on the type of activities. Despite the high temperatures, summer is the best time for wildlife and nature tourism. The national parks and wildlife sanctuaries receive the most number of visitors during this time because of the high chance of spotting animals. However, for touring cities and the mountainous areas, winter is more suitable. The cooler climate makes sightseeing more comfortable. Mountains, waterfalls and rivers are at their best and greenest during the winter, making these natural beauties a sight to behold.

Chhattisgarh in Summer (March - June)
Chhattisgarh, because of its location close to the Tropic of Cancer, has a humid tropical climate. It has seasons similar to mainland India and summer season lasts from March to early June. The average temperature is around 45 to 49 degrees Celcius, and the humidity is moderate. This season is ideal for visiting the forests of Chhattisgarh since animals venture out near waterholes and there is a better chance of sighting the more elusive denizens of the woods.
Chhattisgarh in Monsoon (July - October)
Since agriculture in this state is mostly rain dependent, monsoon has deep cultural and social significance in Chhattisgarh. The rainfall is heavy to moderate with approximately 50 inches of annual rainfall. The monsoon arrives in July and continues until October. Monsoon also gives the much-needed respite from the rain and is welcomed by the locals. The temperature is around 35 degrees Celcius but some rivers may flood during this time and connectivity to hills and forests is not very convenient.
Chhattisgarh in Winter (November - February)
Winter is the best season to visit Chhattisgarh because of the cooler temperatures and clear weather. This season lasts from November to February with temperatures ranging from 25 degrees Celcius to as low as zero degrees. Because there is vast topographical diversity, the temperature varies according to altitude and wind patterns. It is advisable to check the weather of each city to ensure a comfortable stay. Winter is the best season for trekking and other adventure sports.
