It further makes exploring the attractions a tremendously enjoyable experience during the day without having to bear the scorching heat or rainfall. The summers, that follow immediately, make the state extremely hot and humid. A trip to Punjab during this season is not at all advisable to the tourists. Monsoons, however, can be a good idea sometimes depending on the region being explored as certain locations receive heavy rainfall during the season.
