Climate and Temperature

Myanmar has a largely tropical climate with theree seasons:

The monsoon or rainy season, from May to October; (Average Temperature ; 25 to 30 degree centigrade) Rainfall during the monsoon season totals more than 500 cm in upper Myanmar and over 250 cm in lower Myanmar and Yangon (formerly Rangoon). Central Myanmar, called the dry zone, and Mandalay, the chief city in the area, each receive about 76 cm (30 in).

Although it rains heavily in Yangon and Inle Lake, traveling in Myanmar during this season is still enjoyable because Mandalay and Bagan lies in dry zones where it barely rains.

The cool season, from November to February (Average Temperature ; 20 to 24 degree centigrade) and the coldest time is December to February. This is the best tourist season to visit Myanmar. Some regions in upper Myanmar Southern Shan State (included of Kalaw, Pindaya, Taunggyi and Inle Lake) and Eastern Shan State (Kyaing Tone), has a temperatuer that ranges between 5-10 Cံ, so travellers may need to bring some warm clothers to tour around this area.

The hot season, generally March to April (Average Temperature 30 to 45 degree centigrade). The climate in upper Myanmar, particularly at altitudes ranging from about 300 to 1,220 m is the most temperate throughout the year, while lower Myanmar, especially in the delta and coastal regions, is the most humid. Although it’s a bit hot, our programs are designed to make traveling enjoyable as we avoid the heat by touring about in the mornings and evenings.
