Udaipur is often called the “Venice of the East” due to its stunning architecture and picturesque lakes. The city’s location in the deserts of Rajasthan means it experiences the full range of climatic conditions, from hot and semi-arid summers to milder monsoons and wintry winters. On the other hand, the city’s lush vegetation and numerous lakes have made it a popular monsoon vacation spot for Indians. When would you recommend visiting Udaipur for the best weather and crowds?

Udaipur in Summer (Mid-March to June)


When is Udaipur Most Enjoyable for Tourists?

The proximity to the Thar Desert makes summers in Udaipur very hot and dry. In this season, highs can easily reach 45 degrees Celsius, and the average temperature is around 30 degrees. Summer is not a good time to visit Udaipur due to the lack of precipitation and the intense heat of the sun.

However, there are some advantages to visiting Udaipur in the summer as well. If the heat wave keeps you from seeing the city’s top attractions, you can always relax in style at one of the city’s many five-star hotels.

Fun Summer Activities in Udaipur

In March/April, you can celebrate the Mewar festival. Participate in March’s vibrant Holi celebration. Have some arctic fun at Celebration Mall’s Snow Park.

Udaipur in Monsoon (July to September)


Visit Udaipur When It’s At Its Best

During the monsoon season, Udaipur receives very little precipitation. The temperature drops, and you can expect it to drop to between 25 and 35 degrees Celsius, but the humidity can stay at 90% or higher. Dust, thunderstorms, and winds are also common during the monsoons in Udaipur.

However, monsoon is one of the best seasons to visit Udaipur, especially for offbeat and budget travelers, thanks to the lakes being full of water, the lush greenery, the rain-drenched views of the city, some great deals on flight tickets and resorts, and fewer numbers of tourists.

Activities in Udaipur During the Rainy Season

Participate in the Gangaur Festival (also in July/August), see a puppet show and a folk dance performance at Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal, visit Under The Sun, India’s largest fish aquarium, and tour the Monsoon Palace during this time.

If you want to see Udaipur at its finest, you should go in the winter. Udaipur in the fall is perfect for any number of activities, from relaxing boat rides on the city’s lakes to candlelit dinners atop one of the city’s many rooftops.
