Best Time to visit Ahmedabad
The ideal time to visit Ahmedabad is during the winter season which falls between November to March. This is the time when the weather in the whole of Gujarat is mild and very pleasant. It is the kind of weather you need to easily do sightseeing without sweating it out in the sun.
The temperature during the summer which is from April to June sometimes rises to 48 degrees, turning the weather is very dry. Ahmedabad becomes very hot during these months and traversing the city and doing sightseeing becomes a little difficult, especially if you are traveling with children.
Monsoons in Gujarat are from July to October and rains make the weather of Ahmedabad very humid though the mercury level dips a little. The only caveat during these times is that sometimes due to heavy rains Sabarmati River gets flooded and some attractions of the city then cannot be seen.
