Rishikesh is in the Tehri-Garhwal area of Uttaranchal. As it’s a place in the undulating landscape, the weather is never suitable for all types of tourists. Rishikesh is one such visitor’s place that one can visit any time of the year, however. The altitude and geological position of Rishikesh manipulate its climatic conditions. It is located at an elevation of 356 m above sea level.
As Rishikesh is situated at the Himalayan foothills, it serves as a chilly getaway even throughout the hotter months. Consequently, the finest occasion to reach here is between March and April, and September to October. The month of May begins to get moderately blazing here. Rishikesh is most excellent throughout the monsoon months from July to August, as it receives a heavy rainfall. Rafting is also organized during this occasion. Winters are from November to February, which are generally freezing but enjoyable. The months just after the monsoon are the finest time to visit Rishikesh, as during this time its scenery is breathtaking, emerald, and comforting.
