The Best Time to Visit Tamil Nadu

Tamil Nadu is a contradiction in many ways. The expansive state has breezy hill stations as well as bustling cities and it entirely depends on where you intend to travel, to understand the best time to visit Tamil Nadu. Tamil Nadu has three main seasons – summer, monsoon and winter. Here’s a season-wise look at which is the best time to travel to this Southern state.

Summer in Tamil Nadu

Summer begins in March and ends in May. The heat is oppressive especially in the cities and coastal areas where temperatures can go up to 40 °C easily. However, this is the best time to travel to hill stations as the weather is pleasant, breezy and enjoyable. Ooty, Kodaikanal and Yelagiri are some of the hill stations where people head to beat the heat.

Monsoon in Tamil Nadu

Monsoon is from June till September. Although the temperature is slightly lower, it’s still quite hot and with the rains, the humidity goes up several notches. It’s not wise to visit the coastal areas or the hill stations during this time. The occasional cyclones along the Eastern seaboard can be dangerous.

Winter in Tamil Nadu

Tamil Nadu doesn’t really have a cold winter. Although it extends from October till February, there are intermittent rains in November and December. But the best time to visit Tamil Nadu is during the winter months, especially for sightseeing and exploring the cities. The beaches are lovely, and the water is not too cold. There are also several cultural events happening at this time in cities like Chennai, which makes it all the more attractive to visit.
