July in India is a wet month with an average of 311 mm (12 inches) of rain. Along with the rains, the temperature also gets cooler in July with averages around 30°C (86°F).
Due to the heavy rainfall, July is in the low season for most of India, including Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. But India is a vast land with different climates in some areas.
Even in the same region, you can still find somewhere drier to go in July, such as Rajasthan to the north, and there is also Ladakh in the far north and Tamil Nadu in the south.
If you're traveling in July, you'll gain these benefits: the lowest prices, few crowds, fresh air after the rain, and plenty of greenery.

Weather in Northern India: Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan...
Rajasthan (Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur…) has similar temperatures, but receives much lowest rainfall. Thus, it is still a perfect escape from the wet season.
If you visit northern India at this time, you'd better keep your itinerary flexible. The heavy rain might lead to floods and train/flight cancellations.
Weather in the Far North Mountain Areas: Leh, Shimla, Himalayan Foothills...
The far north Himalayan plateau area of Ladakh is less affected by the monsoon. July is one of the best months to visit Leh (Ladakh's capital) for sightseeing, hiking, and trekking, as it is its warmest month, averaging 11–25°C (51–77°F).
However, things are different in Shimla and the lower Himalayan foothills. You might encounter heavy rainfall so it is not suggested to visit this area in July.
Weather in Southern India: Mumbai, Kerala, Goa...
July is in the middle of the monsoon season in most of South India. So, you will feel high heat and humidity, especially in popular cities, like Kerala, Mumbai, and Goa.
The frequent torrential rainfall makes July a low season: many resorts in Goa remain closed and few beach activities are available.
Exceptionally, heavy rainfall doesn't come to Tamil Nadu until October. So, you can still visit it in July, as it only experiences low/moderate rainfall.
5 Best Places to Visit in India in July
1. Ladakh: Cool Adventure Paradise
In fact, June to October is the best time to visit Ladakh because it has the best weather. In July, the temperatures in Leh range from highs of 25°C (77°F) to lows of 10°C (50°F).
With little rainfall, you can enjoy its beautiful summer scenery, and go hiking or biking around its countryside.
2. Udaipur: Perfect Monsoon Getaway
Nestled in the Thar Desert, Udaipur is a perfect monsoon getaway with low rainfall.
Known as a city of lakes, Udaipur is a popular destination for honeymoons. With your love, you can enjoy a couple's Ayurvedic massage at a heritage haveli (traditional townhouse), take a boat on Lake Pichola, and see the stunning sunsets.
3. The Valley of Flowers, Uttarakhand
If you love flowers and trekking, the Valley of Flowers is an ideal choice. For trekkers, less rain, few crowds, and flowery greenery are the reason to visit in July.
If you look for the best feast of flowers, then go at the end of July. Colorful flowers blanket the Valley and offer a great vista.
4. Jaisalmer: Dry Desert City
Compared with other cities in India, Jaisalmer is a perfect place in July with just 60 mm of rainfall on average.
As a golden city for imperial heritage, Jaisalmer features plenty of historic forts, temples, and palaces. You can join in a camel safari at a lower price and with fewer crowds in July.
Or immerse yourself in the peaceful local life of playing kids, busy vendors, cooking women...
5. Jodhpur: Tranquil Blue City
Similar to Jaisalmer, Jodhpur experiences low rainfall, and any rainfall doesn't last long either.
As one of the world's three blue cities, Jodhpur has a calm and romantic atmosphere. Wander around the streets, marvel at the Mehrangarh Fort and look out over the blue city.
The bustling markets are a good place to get close to the local life. You would have chances to taste yummy food, see exquisite handcrafts, and watch exotic shows.
Costs and Crowding
The monsoon weather makes July part of the low season for travel in India. You are likely to have attractions to yourself… if you don't mind the (risk of) heavy rain.
Airfares and room rates are still at their lowest, usually 30–50% off. Thus, if you have a flexible schedule with enough time, traveling in July is a good idea to appreciate the highlights while spending the least money.

What to Pack
India in July is hot and humid, so pack some light quick-drying clothes, such as T-shirts, and light trousers (even shorts where appropriate) or summer dresses for the day.
Due to the heavy rain, you'd better take rain gear and waterproof/non-slip shoes for most areas.
Pack for cooler conditions in the far north, e.g. Ladakh.

Seeing Bangkok with ease
In Bangkok, our tour guide, Ying, was wonderful. She navigated all the sights with ease, gave us interesting tidbits on Thai culture and history, helped us pick the right food at all the restaurants, and was just a pleasure to be around. We had a great time, and it was so nice to not have to worry about any of the details.More

Thailand, Singapore, Bali
In Thailand, Tanny and Nori(Suparp), were both incredible! They were both fun, funny, and full of knowledge and made sure we got the full experience. They went the extra mile and always made sure we had cold bottled water and towels to cleanse our hands. In Singapore, Nicole was an absolute gem. She was so kind and knowledgeable and guided us in the right direction to make our day as enjoyable as possible. She helped us choose a top notch local lunch and coffee spot in China Town and taught us so much about the country! In Bali, Emon was an absolute joy. He was very knowledgeable and kind and absolutely made sure we were feeling comfortable and was willing to be flexible with us. He was fun to converse with and made our time traveling between destinations so enjoyable! I cannot recommend Asia Highlights enough! Accommodations, travel arrangements and guided tours were all a breeze.More

Large multi-generational holiday in Thailand
The holiday was wonderful. Our guides, Mr Monchai (Bangkok), and Ms Tipagorn (Tippy) (Chiang Mai) were exceptional. Travelling in a large multigenerational group with many children requires patience and our guides truly understood that. Mr Monchai and Ms Tippy shared their extensive knowledge of the many wonderful places we visited, and were flexible to take us to additional places along the way based on discussions. While everyday was busy, having them greet us with patience and a smile truly made this a memorable holiday. The hotels we stayed at were equally wonderful and went above and beyond to celebrate not only my parents 50th anniversary but also celebrate 2 milestone birthdays that occurred. We will cherish this holiday for many years to come. We hope to use Asia Highlights again.More
