WHERE IS INDIA???
Geographical
location and
climatic
conditions of
India
Known for the extreme type of climate, the northern
plains of India are stretched from Assam in the east to
the Punjab in the west going on to the Rann of Kutch in
Gujarat. Also known as the Gangetic Plains, this region
has some of the largest Indian rivers meandering
through it like Ganga, Brahmaputra and the Yamuna.
These plains experience a relatively hot and humid
summer followed by a freezing cold winter. These plains
receive profuse rainfall from July to September. But
winter still is considered to be the best time of the year
in this region for the maximum number of tourists flock
to the region during that time.
The Himalayas are the
second most important
climatic regions of India for
most of the environmental
changes in India owe their
frequency and vibrancy to
them . Summer is the best
season to visit the region as
the massive rainfall in
winters makes the place
impossible to reach. It is
due to the Himalayas only
that the excessively cold
and chilly winter breeze
rising from the western
oceans cannot reach the
Central India observes the maximum heat
during the summer season. The month of
July remains the much awaited month
because of the heavy . The winter months
in the central regions of India observe
contrasting climate changes for the
temperature usually drops in the night.
