India Weather in February

India Weather in February

This is one of our favourite months to visit India, and for lots of reasons. This is an excellent time for tiger tracking in the National Parks, for spotting the very elusive snow leopards of the Himalayas, experiencing the culture that India is so famous for, and to top it off, you can even add a trip to the beach for some relaxation.

On the whole, India in February is nice and sunny, with the fog and mist from January clearing up. In the far north, snow leopards are descending from the mountains in search of prey, making this a good time to try spotting them on our pioneering snow leopard safari. This can be combined with Bengal tigers in the tiger parks, and even Asiatic leopards in Sri Lanka for the ultimate Asian big cat safari

For tigers, all the parks are open, and they can be spotted with quite short grasses to hide behind. We consider the best time to track tigers as March to April, however February is a great time to go if you want to avoid the heat. As the weather warms up, it can become quite unbearable in the tiger parks, making tracking hard work. 

As the weather is still relatively cool, it is a great time to explore the cities and cultural sights in more comfortable conditions. Please note that heating in rooms is rare, due to their very rarely being actual cold weather, so make sure you have some cosy clothing to sleep in at night. Nigh times can get fairly chilly in areas such as Rajasthan, Delhi, and Agra, as well as Central India, dipping between 5-10 degrees Celsius.

Further south, towards Kerala the weather is warmer, with temperatures dropping at night to sit comfortably between 15-20 degrees Celsius, with the days often above 25 and a low level of humidity.
