in Rajasthan is from October to March. Later the temperatures rise up until May to about 40º C to 50ºC.

In June begins  monsoon season and the rain brings some of the long expected cooling. This will last sometimes until August/September.

The clothing

on a trip in India should be light cotton.

The ladies should consider to wear a longer blouse or sweater,reaching close to the hips and covering the shoulders.   Depending on the season you need a warm jacket since the temperatures in Rajasthan can drop considerably after sunset. Even during the day a light sweater is usually necessary in December and January.

Clothes can be casual but should be neat. Indians are generally conservative in their clothing, too casual or sloppy would not be appreciated.

for India should include something to treat fever and diarrhea, possibly also the usual patches and skin-disinfection in case of a small wound.
