Best Time To Visit Central India

Central India is a region with a tropical climate, characterized by very hot summers, heavy monsoons, and extreme cold. The temperature of central India rises up to 45 degrees Celsius during the summer season. However, the summer season is a good time to visit bird sanctuaries and hill stations like Pachmarhi. Because the temperature here is slightly lower, due to the greenery and altitude, the weather here is a bit cold. 

Talking about the best time to visit Central India, the best time to visit Central India is during the winter season (October-March). The winter season is very pleasant, with the temperature dropping to around 5 degrees Celsius. The days are refreshing, and ideal for visiting the various monuments and sightseeing spots in the cities of Central India.
