Best Time To Visit haridwar

The month of October marks the beginning of the winter season, which ends in March. It is the best time to visit Haridwar. The weather is pleasant during this time, with temperatures that vary from 6°C to 24°C. Owing to the cold weather, warm clothes and woolens are a must. The festivals that are celebrated in Haridwar make the entire city light up, with people enjoying with much gusto. Ram Navami and Buddha Purnima are the main festivals, but the most awaited festival is the Kumbh Mela, which occurs every 12 years in winter.

Although Haridwar is welcoming throughout the year, the peak season to visit Haridwar, other than the months of winters, is in the month of July. The Kanwar Mela held here attracts hordes of pilgrims who journey on foot for the entire month of Saavan to seek blessings of Lord Shiva by gathering holy waters of the River Ganga from Hindu pilgrim places of Haridwar, Gaumukh, and Gangotri in Uttarakhand and Sultanganj in Bihar. Another ideal time to visit Haridwar is during Diwali celebrations in October and November when the city is lit up with diyas, candles, and fireworks and makes for a splendid sight, not just for pilgrims, but for everyone visiting this place.

Since it is a prominent Hindu pilgrimage spot, it is not possible to point out Haridwar tourist season, as people throughout the year flock this place to seek God's blessings. Other than Har Ki Pauri and its prominent temples like Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi, Haridwar lies very close to Rishikesh, Dehradun, Mussoorie among other places, which can be easily visited from here.

While you can explore the city on your own, the best way to explore it is by booking Haridwar holiday packages that extensively cover all destinations around the area. These packages also ensure you get the best hotels in Haridwar. They even take care of your travel, so all you need to do is visit the place and thoroughly explore it at your own pace. Since this is a tourist-friendly destination, it is easy to get accommodation in Haridwar. From budget to 5-star hotels, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to Haridwar hotels. You can find a list of these hotels online or if you opt for a package, it will already be taken care of.

If you visit Haridwar during summers, i.e., between the months of April and June, be prepared to face warm days where the temperature rises upto 40-degree Celsius. However, the nights will still be pleasant owing to its proximity to the Ganges. Haridwar may not have any adventure sports of its own, but if you have a knack for adventure, you can plan a short trip to Rishikesh from here where you can indulge in camping, star gazing, river rafting among others.
