YES! Be prepared! But the best thing is you can have lots of Mango in the season! Also if you want a little more advanture, you can get "Tadi', i.e., a sweet drink excrated from palm trees

Mumbai is warm and humid right now in winter. In summer, well it is just down right miserable. Now if you like hot and humid this is the place for you!
Hope for air conditioning and not to many power cuts. As the other poster pointed out, the mangoes do almost make up for the heat !

On weather averages, kindly check also this whole thread: India climate chart .

nb That "tadi" mentioned above is more commonly spelled as "toddy" I think, should you want to look around for it Also known as palm wine, it's a non-alcoholic drink just upon tapping, that has the funny quality it keeps fermenting throughout the day, so quickly evolving from a sweet juice to a light beer or wine-like drink, to something stronger and finally vinegar

No worries there. The rain generally doesn't start until the 1st or 2nd week of June. The most you might get is the last week of may it might rain but I really doubt that.

The South will be very hot. Chennai in April and May is not very nice.

I`ve traveld in hot and humid weather, generaly I get used to it. A am fine at around 35C, its the higher thirtis and the fourtis that worry me.
Unfortunatley April is the soonest I can leave and I`ve been realy lookin forward to going to India...but on the other hand a heat stroke is no fun eather
I guess I`ll have to avoid the realy hot parts.......I dont know...stuck between a rock and a hard place

Cheers

That's probably exactly what you're looking at though.

I've never done it; people seem to plan to live by night more, plan your activities for early morning/late day, take it easy in the daytime, have siestas. You can count on your traveling around not being as fast, nor your activities as many.

Other than that, people hit the mountains of course (even the hill stations further south, rather lower though). Check if you're not running into the wet season there, which could again pose logistical issues in terms of landslides and so on. As noted, shouldn't be a real issue in your period yet I think, but I believe it moves in fairly early from North-East India across the Himalayas. Again, refer to that "climate" thread given above, which should give you a fair idea.

--> nb Folks, certainly in the plains, wouldn't hot & dry be more what you're looking at? Different kind of heat again altogether.

Besides the mountains, I think you might find Kerala more evenly-temperatured (tropical climate, after all), and not too wet yet (but possibly getting wet'ish -- should make it nice and green at least) by then.

Yes Himalayas could be a good idea and no I have traveled many a times in mid May and mid June in the hills and landslides are not a major factor then if the weather remains the same.

And if you feel adventurous, you could go down to Bangalore and go to the NATIONAL MANGO RESEARCH STATION.
403 different varieties
OMG.
Australia has three.
