Located close to the Chenab River and 120 kilometers north of Lahore, Gujarat is a coastal area which lies on India’s west coast. In fact, it has the longest coastline in the country reaching up to 1290 kilometers. Gujarat is a calm and tranquil land where the clear, blue seas adjoin the glistening sands.
Gujarat is India’s westernmost state. Furthermore, it is bordered by Pakistan and in the northeast, by Rajasthan state, in the east by Madhya Pradesh and in the south by Maharashtra and the United Territories of Diu, Dadra, Daman and Nagar Haveli.
The state is also bound by the Arabian Sea in the southwest and west. Gujarat’s climate is humid in the southern regions while dry in the northern areas. Since its northern border is passed across by the Tropic of Cancer, the climate in this state is usually extremely hot in summers yet frosty cold in winters. But due to the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Cambay borders, the extreme climate conditions are reduced to more agreeable and pleasant climates.
Gujarat has various seasons which is divided as follows: winter season starting from the month of November until February; summer season starting from the month of March up to May; southwest monsoon season starting from the month of June until September; and lastly, the month of October which intervenes between the months.
Gujarat’s land reserves are mostly low in several regions which results to a significant diversity in its climatic conditions. This state has moderately cold and dry winter seasons, with the usual temperature in day time reaching 29 degrees Celsius and temperature in night time reaching 12 degrees Celsius. Such temperatures are not too cold for a winter season. However, the summer season tends to be extremely hot and dry. The daytime temperature ranges around 41 degrees Celsius while the nighttime temperature ranges around 29 degrees Celsius.
Even though Gujarat may be visited at any month of the year, the most recommended time for touring this state is from the month of October until February since during these months, the weather of Gujarat is pleasantly warm and dry. For the remaining months, the temperature tends to rise up to an uncomfortable level.
