The climate of India is interesting and complex because India's topography is so diverse. India sees a wide range of weather conditions throughout the enormous continent, which ranges from desert plains, to mountains, to forests, to beaches. That being said, the climate ranges from equatorial to alpine. The temperatures can differ drastically from one region of the country to another. According to the Köppen system, a widely used system that determines an area's climate based on its vegetation, India has six primary climate types.India has desert in the western region, alpine tundra and some glaciers in the northern region, humid tropical regions that support rain-forests in the southwestern region, and its islands. Different regions have very different micro-climates as well.India has four basic seasons: winter in January and February, summer from March through May, monsoon season from June through September, and an after monsoon period from October through December. My wife and I were married in the western region, in the state of Gujarat, in December of 2007, during the post-monsoon period. A that time, the weather was warm and comfortable. I found the post monsoon season to be a good month to visit India. So, consider checking out an India destination in this season.
