Agartala has a monsoon-influenced humid climate with heavy rain throughout the year. Long, hot summers and short, pleasant winters are the characteristics of the weather here.
The ideal weather for sightseeing in the city is during the winter season – between the months of October and February. The beautiful landscape of the city is at its scenic best during this period. Cultural programmes marked by traditional folk dances and songs of the local tribal communities are another attraction for the tourists in winters. The Orange Festival, Diwali as well as the Durga Puja are must-sees for visitors to Agartala during this time.
