Best Time to Visit Jodhpur

If you’re planning a trip to Jodhpur, the best time to visit is during the winter. However, you can choose a suitable time to visit based on Jodhpur's climatic conditions, as discussed below. 

March to June

The summer season in Jodhpur begins in March and lasts till June. The hot arid climate of Jodhpur results in a very hot summer. Sometimes, the temperature can soar above 40°C in late April and May, making the weather unbearably hot for any outdoor activities. So, very few people visit the city during the summer. 

July to September

This is the monsoon season in Jodhpur, although the average rainfall can widely fluctuate every year. While the humidity levels are high during this period, the temperature is certainly more bearable than the scorching summer heat. August or September can be the best month to visit Jodhpur if you’re on a shoestring budget. It is the off-season in Jodhpur, and with fewer tourists around, you can bargain for discounts and great deals on accommodation, shopping, etc. 

October to February

The winter season begins in October and stays until February's end. The temperature hovers at 10°C and 25°C during this period. Therefore, this can be the best season to visit Jodhpur with your friends and loved ones. The clear sky and comfortable weather are perfect for a desert safari or a sightseeing tour. 

Moreover, winter is also a festival season for Jodhpur. The Marwar festival and Rajasthan International Folk Festival are organised in September-October. The Jodhpur International Desert Kite festival and Jodhpur Nagaur Fair are organised in January-February.
