Hello all! I am considering going to Kolkata and doing a Hoogly river cruise next April. Is it too hot or rainy at that time of year ? Thank you in advance for your input.
It might or might not be rainy, but it will be definitely hot, daytime temp will be about 33-35C. You can still do it, but you do need a room with AC to relax or book an evening trip.
Thank you very much for your reply brave1. I decided to go in the beginning of March instead. I guess it will be less hot than in April...Am I right? Thank you again.
You are right astro50 with your change of plans. Weather will be much more pleasant in early March. And the river Hoogly, in the earlier parts of the mornings, and the latter parts of the day should catch a breeze, which should make a day cruise pretty pleasant. Enjoy!
Thank you so much for your input t1nkud. I am glad I made the right choice :-)
You are definitely going to enjoy your trip in March. :)
Definitely the right choice astro50, March is much more pleasant and tolerable. April is really hot and humid. Enjoy your trip.
Thank you very much to all :-)
Weather generally around April is hot & humid. But expect rains, evening are cool, so River cruise would be nice. Start at Sunset and finish with dinner.
