Experience Udaipur in Monsoon

Udaipur, the City of Lakes, is a charming city in Rajasthan celebrated for its enchanting lakes and stunning ambience. With the many royal residences that populate the city, a trip to this regal city is a must. Although you can visit the city at any time of the year, there is something quite magical about Udaipur in rainy season.

During monsoon, Udaipur becomes more attractive to travellers. As raindrops fall onto the artificial lakes and paint the verdure greener, it is during monsoon when the city truly blooms! From lush greenery to overflowing lakes, it is a moment to behold! In addition to boat rides, you can take a walk along the lake with a steaming cup of chai or engross in the glistening humdrum of water-soaked forts and palaces.

Is monsoon the best time to visit Udaipur?

Travellers from all over the world flock to the city for its architectural grandeur, stunning landscapes, and rich culture. Capturing the real essence of Rajasthani culture, Udaipur is the place to visit throughout the year. In summer, between March to June, the temperatures can rise to 38 degrees Celcius. It is the perfect time to enjoy the cool breeze and paddle in the ponds. During winter, the temperatures plummet and are perfect to wander out for little adventures. However, Udaipur in monsoon, between July and October, is one of the best times to explore the city! As the scent of petrichor dominates the air, exploring the corners of the city becomes more adventurous and romantic. If you are visiting during the rainy months, there are a lot of things to do in Udaipur in monsoon that will keep you engaged!
