Travel Forums Asia Heat in India during May-June

We will be flying into Delhi then making our way up to the north by train and then around and down to the south, Mumbai. I am wondering whether in these places India is more dry than humid during May-June?

Thanks, Ardy

humid and hottest period of the year. but there are enough places with A/C to cool down in india, even in trains. prepare for extreme heat upto 43 degrees in Delhi at that time of the year. Places at sea are ofcourse much more humid then inland places. Mumbai has often a humidity of 95% or more in May-June. Get up early, take a siesta in the afternoon, from 4pm at will be better again. Cheers,

The coast will be at the end of our trip, so hopefully by then will be a little more accustomed to the scorching temperatures.

Thanks for the advice.

Mumbai is a little cooler but the humidity is rough. Personally I better have dry heat with temperatures of 40 then 33 degrees with a humidity of 98%. But you will manage don't worry. I did it twice for weeks in that period (last year in Kolkata, that is even worse). No worries;).

Its really avoidable to visit any of the citties coz of the high heat...Delhi will be sweltering then but dry, Mumbai will have heat and humidity....all beaches will be very hot..all 40+ degrees centigrade....best places to visit then will be the mountains in Himachal, Uttaranchal, Sikkim, etc
