The 7th largest countries in the world, India is a large subcontinent, where varying climatic conditions occur, at the same time in different parts of the country. The country offers so much of variety that you can always find a suitable destination with your choice of climate
The Indian Meteorological Department divides the year into four seasons: the relatively dry and cool winter (December - February); the dry and hot summer (March - May); the rainy monsoon (June -- September) and the retreating monsoon (October -November). Climate in North India is bright and pleasant during the winter and retreating monsoons months (October - February). Summers (March-June) are generally hot in most parts of India and during this period numerous hill resorts in the Himalayan ranges and also on South Indian hills, provide great relief to people from the heat and dust of the plains. During the monsoon, rainfall is heavy in most of the parts of the country that substantially brings down the temperature, bringing much desired relief to the people from the heat. The climatic diversity in India is so wide that while the Himalayan climatic zone remains cold throughout the year, the temperature in Thar Desert in Rajasthan always remains unbearably high. And it's because of India's unique climatic diversity; you can always find a suitable destination in India with your choice of climate, all round the year.
The Indian subcontinent has eight climatic zones and monsoon rain is common to all of them. But even the monsoon reaches at different times at different parts of the country. While monsoon reaches to the Kerala Coast on 1st June, it takes about a month to reach New Delhi (29th June).
