Climate of Paatlidun

Paatlidun Wildlife Lodge is situated on the edge of Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand and enjoys a temperate climate. The exotic wildlife in the reserve is well adapted to changing weather conditions and sightings are common round the year.

In the grasslands of the Terai, summer is hot and dry and temperatures often soar to 40 degrees Celsius. Summer season starts in March and lasts till June; this is an ideal time for spotting wild cats during daytime because that’s when they go to watering holes to quench their thirst.

The onset of the monsoon in mid-June transforms Paatlidun into a truly picturesque destination. During monsoon the park is closed for tourists because it’s the mating season for animals. Moreover, heavy rains give rise to seasonal streams and swollen rivers make it risky to venture inside the Park.

However, that’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy monsoons in the Terai. Curl up in the plush comfort of your private cottage as it rains a thunderstorm outside. With the first rains, breathe in the heady petrichor and watch the dust being washed off the leaves after a scorching summer. The Park opens for visitors again in September, once the rains have passed.

Winter brings its own charm of elephant rides through foggy, shadowy, tall grass, with the backdrop of hazy purple hills hulking in the distance. Hiking and trekking during winter is always a memorable experience, but don’t forget to pack that favourite windcheater of yours!

At Paatlidun you can experience the beauty of the Terai in all its seasons, and in every shade and mood. Visit us anytime during the year and we’ll make sure you return home with a bagful of cherished memories.

Summer March- July 22 C -38 C

Winter October-February 4 C -17 C

Monsoon July- September 24 C -36 C

The best time to visit Paatlidun is during the winter. November to February are the ideal months for you to visit us with your loved ones. Exploring the bounds of the national park, you will be in luck for sighting animals easily as they too would love to bask in the winter sun like you. So do not forget to pack that favorite wind cheater of yours!

Driving and trekking during the winter season is going to be a memorable one. As you snake through the winding roads of the Kumaon region, the sun light filtering through the dense trees and lightly falling on to your face and the slight nip in the air make for a perfect stay at Paatlidun!

Nevertheless, you may visit us anytime of the year and we would make your stay as memorable as you can imagine and send you back home with a suitcase full of memories!
