Best Season
The best season to visit Varanasi is undoubtedly September end - November. This is chiefly on two accounts. Firstly, the weather during these months is rather mellow and secondly, this is the festive season in India, especially the northern plains. So tourists at this time can enjoy the gaiety and splendour that these festivals offer.
