    Just wanted to know from you folks that is it not a good idea to visit Rajasthan in winters (December-January)? Is it going to be too cold and foggy? We do not want to spoil or miss the sightseeing due to dense fog :(

    We can change our plan and can delay the tip if it is not a good time to visit.

    Winters are perfect for Rajasthan because summers are not for every one because of the heat. Yes there may be fog but it is not every day and will only be a matter of concern in the early morning or late night. The whole of North India is under dense fog for days some times but it does not last for ever. Even during heavy fog days you will have decent visibility in the afternoon time.

    If you are going to be on a tight scedule then you may end up loosing a few days because of the fog. It is not just Rajasthan but whole of North India gets dense fog every winter and some times there is very low visibility even during the day for 3-4 days in a row. If you have plenty of days to spare then fog wont bother you much as you can just have a few off days and relax at the hotel.

    Every one has a different definition of cold. For some one from Siberia our winters will be hot and so on. Depends where you are coming from. Rajasthan does get cold during the night but day time is not bad in winters and sitting in sunshine is great in winters.

    I agree everyone's definition of cold would be different but it is not the temperature that would be a problem but the fog which is annoyingly dense.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    The best time to visit Rajasthan is actually during the winter season. The months from December to March are the winter season months. January is the coldest month in the region. Temperature ranges from 20°C to 35°C. But it can also get as low as 0°C or the negative in other cities in Rajasthan. It's a great time for sightseeing as the weather is cool and pleasant. Unlike the summers which can get humid and hot or the monsoon season when humidity also rises. You only need to pack your jackets to prepare for the cold.

    When it comes to the fog, it usually occurs during early morning. It is usually in Delhi and Agra that fog is quite bad. In some parts of Rajasthan, you might find them more foggy. Like in Jaipur, fog occurs in the morning and can stay for a few hours. During this time, you can visit other attractions first that aren't as affected by fog. By mid-morning, the fog would have settled and you can continue your journey.

    It also depends on the weather itself for that day. Some days you'll encounter fogs and other days might not have fogs. And usually, during the third week of January, the fogginess might be gone. It's at its worst during the end of December and first few weeks of January.

    So there would be no need to cancel your trip. The months you picked are actually the peak season for tourists. It's just a testament that these are the best months to visit Rajasthan.
