What is the Best Time to Visit Mount Abu?
Mount Abu, a quintessential hill station in Rajasthan, exhibits pleasant weather throughout the year. If you want to explore the hill station in all its glory, the best time to visit Mount Abu is considered during winter, that is, November and March. The weather during these months is not so extreme and harsh, which allows for a comfortable and calming travel experience.
As mentioned, the peak tourist season in Mount Abu is considered to be between November and March. You will see several tourists flocking to the beautiful hill station to spend some time away from the hustle-bustle of the city. Also, during these months, Mount Abu celebrates a wide range of festivities that make it all the more stunning!
The shoulder season can be witnessed between March and June. While the beauty of the hill station remains unblemished, Mount Abu sees a drop in the number of tourists. If you are someone who would rather explore the hill station when it’s less crowded, then this might be the best time for you to plan your solo trip to Mount Abu. The best part about the shoulder season is that even though the temperature rises quite a bit, it does not get extremely hot and sunny.
And lastly, the time between July and October constitutes the low season. During these months, Mount Abu witnesses heavy rainfalls, and some of the prominent tourist attractions, such as Nakki Lake, are closed to tourists. However, this season is another opportunity for you to explore the hill station that comes to life during the rains!
