Weather In Udaipur: Monthly Temperature, Climate and Prevailing Seasons

Planning a trip to Udaipur, but still sceptical about its weather situation? Well, Worry no more. Let’s walk you through the climate and the most prevalent seasons of this wonderful oasis in the desert.


The royal city Udaipur is located in Rajasthan, which is India’s renowned desert state. Hence, it might surprise you that this city has yearly monsoons, and the main reason behind this is the Aravalli Range. The southern edge of the Aravalli Range separates the city from the Thar Desert. Therefore, it has semi-arid weather rather than a severe desert climate. This also means that, while May and early June are hot, the city is spared from the impact of the summer heat as compared to other cities across the state. Because of its desert location, the monsoons here are not that rainy and humid as compared to other Indian territories.

Here’s all you need to know about Udaipur’s weather, including monthly temperatures, so you can plan your vacation accordingly. Before that let us give you quick temperature facts about this city.

Returns The Charm Of Udaipur


So at last, the dullness & the sad faces of the city got swayed away with the influx of showers in just a period of 4 days. At the time when it had occurred to the gloom of almost everyone that the city’ll be left dry this year, the end of the monsoon brought back the smiles.

The beauty of Udaipur lies in its waters & the greens, imagining it without rains is like imagining Vrindavan without the charms of Krishna. The air turns romantic, the ambience heavenly, the torrents frolic, the green fragility harmonized; and the clouds returning with cascades…

On part of all, a big thanks to God for their endowment. No worth is realized unless ceded to absence. Apt maxim: All’s well that ends well.  Though our affections are enough to make it the one but no doubt, these showers have made it the loveliest place on earth.

If there is heaven, it’s here. <3
