Best Time to Visit Haridwar

The best time to Visit Haridwar depends on why you want to go. The popular religious festivals like Ramanavami are celebrated in the month of March and April, Buddha Poornima in May, Diwali in October and Karthika Poornima in November. Haridwar is famed for its Kanwar Mela, in the month of July and the Kumbh Mela, which is held every 3 years. Notice most of these fall in the summer months between March and June when the days get hot but the nights remain pleasant. One way to cool off is by taking a dip in the holy Ganges.

The Winters, from October to February, tend to get chilly and it's advisable to carry heavy woollens if you're visiting Haridwar at this time of the year. Avoid the monsoons, July to September, as it gets very humid.
