When to Visit Gurugram
If you’re planning to book a stay at a luxury hotel in Gurugram between September and December, you’re on the right track. In this period, the average temperature should be about 18 degrees Celsius. The temperature then drops in January and goes as low as 2 degrees. Summers in Gurugram are hot, sticky, and have temperatures soaring up to 40 degrees.
On average, the climate is ideally pleasant in the city unless you are visiting during the summers, which are extreme. June is the hottest month in Gurugram. Monsoons are unpredictable with the city receiving intense thunderstorms, showers and scanty rainfall together. Winters are nice, chilly, and often blankets the city in fog.
The city has a variety of bird species and exotic flora and fauna which you can catch at the Sultanpur National Park and Bird Sanctuary, a popular natural site in Gurugram. This park was established in 1989 and is the best place to spend some time with nature. Tourists flock to this natural attraction when they want a break from the exotic setups at luxury resorts in Gurugram.

The lake is flanked by the Aravallis and provides a scenic view to the visitors. The lake has Sulphur springs, which is a major attraction point for tourists. The water in these springs is believed to carry great medicinal benefits. Damdama Lake is the largest natural lake in Gurugram. The pristine blue water flows calmly on the lake against the incredible backdrop of the Aravallis.
