Best time to visit and why

Hampi welcomes tourists all 12 months of a year, only some months are not for the weak hearted. Hampi is at her best between October and March, partly because of the weather and partly because of the <a>special events</a>, held during this period. The summer of Hampi (April - June), exaggerated by the heat containment of Rocky Mountains and high and dry temperatures of up to 45 oC might not be very favourable conditions to experience the best of what Hampi offers. Nor are the rainy months of (July - September) very favourable conditions to be there. The best period, hence, is between October to March. The weather is very pleasant during these months, to coincide with the festivals celebrated grandly in Hampi.
