Best Time To Visit puducherry

Pondicherry has a warm climate most of the year. However, winter season offers pleasant atmosphere which is perfect for tourists to explore this beautiful city, which still has kept its French character intact.

Winter sets in by December and lasts until March. It is also considered the best time to visit Pondicherry as the minimum temperature drops to 17 °C. It is the ideal time for sightseeing, strolling at the seafront, and do adventure activities. Christmas and New Year are celebrated during this time with joy and enthusiasm, which also makes it a peak tourist season to visit Pondicherry. It also sees an increase in the activities at the beaches where you can indulge in water sports, take a boat ride, or experience a divine dawn and go birdwatching. Adventure lovers can go scuba diving as there are natural coral reefs, man-made folds, and a plethora of marine organisms to explore. Various scuba diving sites include Cool Shark Reef, Temple Reef, 4 Corners, Aravind’s Wall, Ravines, and The Hole. Sunrises and Sunsets are often a soulful sight at Pondy.

For those who love to see frequent rain showers and greenery all around insinuating a hint of romance, the best season to travel to Pondicherry is between the month of July to September. The temperature varies between 30 °C to 18 °C at this time, and the city receives northeast monsoon characterized by pleasant weather. You can get drenched in rain and see the plantations sprawling around the city. And, if getting drenched isn’t something you prefer, carry an umbrella on your sightseeing trip to enjoy the various delights of the city.

The months of October and November see a mild climate with the temperature ranging between 20 °C and 27 °C. It is a perfect time to discover Pondicherry tourist places on a bicycle or take walking tours around the city. These tours comprise Muslim Quarter (also called Green Quarter), followed by Tamil & French houses, traditional sites, historical places, cultural centres and more. You can get up, close, and personal with the city’s architectural design, and its people by booking Pondicherry tour packages during these months.

Summer season in Pondicherry begins from the month of March, and it ends in the month of July. During this time, the city experiences a maximum temperature of almost 41°C. The day time is quite hot and it is best advised to book hotels in Pondicherry to spend the considerable part of the noon. In the evenings, you can still go out to enjoy water activities to beat the heat. Another alternative is to indulge in indoor activities that keep taking place around the city. For instance, attending various exhibitions and video seminars at Sri Aurobindo Ashram, or taking part in recreational classes that keep happening in various parts of the city.

Irrespective of the season, Pondy has a flavor that charms you as you walk on its tree-lined avenues, among painted colonial buildings, with heart lifting sea breeze for company.
