Best Time to Visit Ranthambore National Park

When is the best time to visit Ranthambore National Park?

 

Ranthambore National Park, India's most popular wildlife destination, is open from October to June. The winter season, from October to March, is considered the best time to visit Ranthambore National Park due to the pleasant weather conditions, with temperatures ranging from 10°C to 30°C. During this time of year, animals can be seen basking in the sun in broad daylight.For tolerable temperatures, visit Delhi and the Golden Triangle in February and March, October and November, but expect crowds at popular sites.

 

Ranthambore experiences hot and humid weather from April to June (summer season), with temperatures reaching 40°C. The month of April is still pleasant, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 35°C. However, the months of May and June are extremely hot. During the summer, however, there is a greater chance of seeing tigers and other animals that must frequently visit water holes to stay hydrated.If you can stand the heat, Ranthambore National Park is fantastic for wildlife viewing in the late dry season. February to March is ideal, but early April is even better, albeit often unbearably hot.

 

During the monsoon season, which lasts from July to September, many areas of Ranthambore National Park are closed to visitors. The core of the national park, with Gates 1–5, is closed during the monsoon; the buffer zone, with Gates 6–10, is open during this time.When the monsoon rains arrive in July and last through August and September, it's as if Ranthambore and the rest of Rajasthan are weeping with relief. However, the roads may flood, and the park is closed during the monsoon months of July, August, and September.

 

By far the majority of people on tiger safaris in Ranthambore are Indians. As a result, Indian public holidays and festivals should be avoided because they fill up quickly. The 26th of January is Republic Day, and Diwali falls in October or November.
