In India, scope for tourism activities prevails through out the year. The best time to visit India depends on your tour theme or purpose of visit. Winter (Nov-Dec-Jan-Feb) is the most preferred time for tourists in India. Tours for Heritage tourism, cultural tourism, wildlife tourism are mostly organized during this time. The Central India & Southern regions are good destinations in the winter months (November to March), as temperatures are mild and game viewing in the national parks is at its best. Winter temperatures in the north can be harsh, but this is an excellent time for bird watching, as migrant species arrive. Winter is also the breeding time for big cats. Summer weather (April to June) in the south is mild and this is the ideal time for beach holiday or cultural tours in this region. In the north, summers are an excellent time to visit the Himalayas. Although hot, summer is considered a good time for wildlife photography and safaris in the interior, as the jungle thickets dry out and game becomes concentrated at watering holes. Summers are good for adventure tourism and hill station visits of North India and North East areas. For trekking it is the ideal time. North & Eastern regions like Leh-ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Sikkim etc are the mostly visited states & reigons during summers.
Here in India, wildlife destinations are mainly open for visitors, from October to May months. As tiger safari in India is specially popular among visitors so its best time to visit is from February to May. For tiger photography, best time is from March to June, during summers. But if you are more interested in birding & nature tourism then we recommend the period of November to March month when large number of migratory birds visit India for a period of 3-4 months. They spread over North to Central India, mainly close to water sources.
India is an excellent destination for family travel. Here you can find diverse landscapes and culture, dressing style, language during tour. Beach holidays and wildlife adventures in national parks are good options, while many forts, palaces and monuments have sight and light shows that will capture childrenï¿½s imagination.

For teenagers, the many outdoor activities, such as camel safaris, elephant ride, horse ride, boat ride and trekking are the best sum up of adventurous activities. The greatest challenge for families travelling in India may be the distances that need to be covered between cities. Air travel and railway journeys are usually the most comfortable modes of travel, and are recommended for those with young children.
