Best Times to Visit Agra
The best time to visit Agra is October through March. This long "winter" sees daily temperatures range from the 70s to low 90s. While prices and tourist volume will be high, you'll avoid heavy rains and unbearable heat. Monsoon season begins in July, with rain pouring down upon Agra through September, and the months of April, May, and June witness temperatures well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
|April-June||Come to Agra during this "early" summer and you'll endure blistering weather: 100-degree days are the norm. Your reward for visiting during this time will be cheap hotel rates and minimal crowds. So the only question is: Can you handle the heat?|
|July-September||The relief brought on by the monsoon season is not as great as you'd expect. Despite numerous days of rain, daytime temps remain in the 90s, and the frequent precipitation adds humidity to the already stifling air. However, the scenery will be particularly green and beautiful, which you can enjoy between showers.|
If you visit during this six-month period, you're likely to have (relatively) comfortable temperatures in the 70s, the 80s, and occasionally the 90s. Crowds peak in December and January, so arriving before or after these middle months will save you money.
