  • 7
  • 7
  • November to April (Winter) - Known for its salubrious weather, Sakleshpur maintains a cool and misty climate all year round but we consider the best time to visit this cosy hill station is from November up until April, when humidity levels are low, making for a comfortable travel experience. But do keep in mind that peak seasons bring in crowds from in and around the area, so plan in advance and make prior hotel reservations for a hassle free trip.

  • June to August (Monsoon) - Alternatively, if you are die hard fan of the rainy season and do not mind the slightly clammy weather or a few puddles, you should totally plan your trip somewhere between June and August, the wettest months of the year. So if you have made peace with these two little problems and have finally arrived in Sakleshpur, the majestic hills will greet you with a picture – perfect, lush carpet of greenery making you forget all your troubles at once and the smell of coffee in the air will make you want to never leave this place.
