WHEN

To Visit

Traditionally Rajasthan has been known as a winter destination. However, Ranakpur with its location in the Aravallis and surrounded by a forest reserve enjoys pleasant weather for most of the year. Apart from the peak season months of September to March, July & August bring out a different side of Ranakpur. As a matter of fact, a visit to Ranakpur during the monsoon months will leave most traveller’s bewildered thanks to the lush green cover and flowing rivulets.

The summer months of April, May & June will see the mercury touch the low forty’s during the day.
However, the morning and evening time is still pleasant enough for someone to sit outside comfortably.
