Celebrating Bihu in Assam

The Best time to visit Assam

Assam enjoys having a moderate climate with a maximum temperature of 35 – 38 C in summers and a minimum temperature of 6 – 8 C in winters, in low lying areas, particularly in the Brahmaputra and Barak Valley.

Infact, this climate gives the world famous Assam tea it’s distinct flavour. The state experiences high rainfall and humidity as it has bounteous forest cover almost through it’s length and breadth.

For visitors planning a trip to this state, the best time to visit is from October to April, when the weather is pleasant with sunny days and cooler nights. Rainfall is moderate and countryside is a treat to look at.

The National Parks and sanctuaries are closed for monsoons between June and September, so plan your trip accordingly.

But a trip to Assam is not without celebrating Bihu, which is the most important festival of Assam. It is celebrated three times a year but the most lavish celebrations take place during Rongali Bihu (mid- April) when the entire state indulges in festivities, making it a good time for tourists to visit the state and soak in the cultural vibrancy of the state.
