The Best Time To Do This Itinerary

The best weather in India is generally between October and March. In northern India, avoid the months of April and May as it can get oppressively hot—120 degrees F (50 degrees C) is not uncommon. In June, the monsoon season arrives and lasts through September, cooling things off a bit, but with daily rain showers. In the south, the monsoon is a bit more complex, with a temporary dry period for most of the month of September, before getting wet again in October and November.  The far north regions of Kashmir and Ladakh are best visited from May through September due to their cooler temperatures and higher elevations.
