When to visit?
This subtropical city is an ideal tourist spot since it is a year-round attraction. But there are some variations to the experience according to the time of the year. Summer, from May to June can be a bit hot here and is the least crowded time of the year. Monsoon starting from July and ending in September is mild and helps to cool down the temperature, so is a good time to enjoy the waterfalls and lush greenery that come alive during this season.
