Best time to visit Dehradun, India

Our verdict

The best time to visit Dehradun is October-November

While Dehradun is a popular destination to visit all year round, October-November is the ideal time to go due to a number of factors such as the climate, cost of travel and accommodation, as well as avoiding peak holiday periods.

In summer, the average maximum temperature is around 36℃ (96℉), but temperatures can sometimes reach as high as 39℃ (103℉) on the hottest days of the year. The weather at night in the winter can get down to temperatures as low as 4℃ (38℉).

The days are longest in Dehradun in May, so if you want to see the sights during the day when the sun is up for the longest time, it’s best to visit around that time of year. August sees the most amount of rain in a month if you’re ok with chancing getting drenched, so if you’re looking to stay dry, visit in November instead.
