Climate

The climate of Rajasthan can be neatly divided into four different seasons:

  • Pre-monsoon
  • Monsoon
  • Post-monsoon
  • Winter.

Pre-monsoon, which extends from April to June, is the hottest season, with temperatures ranging from 32 degree Celsius to 45 degree Celsius. There is little relief from the scorching onslaught of the heat, particularly in the arid zone to the west and north-west of the Aravalli range, where temperatures often climb above 45 degree Celsius, particularly in May and June. Mt Abu registers the lowest temperatures at this time.In the desert regions the temperature rises as night falls. Prevailing winds are from the west ends and carry dust storms.

The monsoon is a welcome arrival in late June in the eastern regions of the state, falling in mid-July in the desert zones.

The third season is the post-monsoon has generally passed over the entire state by mid-September. It is followed by a second hot season, with relatively uniform temperatures registered across the state at this time. In October, the average maximum temperature is 33 degrees C. to 38 degrees C, and the minimum is between 18 degreesC and 20 degrees C.

The fourth season, and the one of the most interest to visitors, is the winter, or cold season, which extends from December to March. January is the coolest month of the year.

Health

HEALTH

Travel health depends on your predaparture preparations, your day-to-day health care while traveling and how you handle any medical problem or emergency that does develop. While the list of potential dangers can seem quite frightening, with a little luck, some basic precautions and adequate information, few travelers experience more than upset stomachs.

BASIC RULES

Care in what you eat and drink is the most important health rule; stomach upsets are the most likely travel health problem (between 30% and 50% of travelers in a two week stay experience these) but the majority of these upsets will be relatively minor. Don't become paranoid; trying the local food is part of the experience of travel, after all.

WATER

The number one rule is don't drink the water and that includes ice. If you don't know for certain that the water is safe always assume the worst. Reputable brands of bottled water or soft drinks are generally fine, although in some places bottles refilled with tap water are not unknown. Only use water from containers with a serrated seal not tops or corks. Take care with fruit juice, particularly if water may have been suspicion, as it is often unpasteurised. Boiled milk is fine if it is kept hygienically and yoghurt is always good. Tea or coffee should also be OK, since the water should have been boiled.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS

Sunburn In the desert, the tropics or at high altitude you can get sunburnt surprisingly quickly, even through cloud. Use a sunscreen and take extra care to cover areas, which don't normally see sun, such as your feet. A hat provides added protection, and you should also use zinc cream or some other barrier cream for your nose and lips. Calamine lotion is good for mild sunburn.

PRICKLY HEAT

Prickly heat is an itchy rash caused by excessive perspiration trapped under the skin. It usually strikes people who have just arrived in a hot climate and whose pores have not yet opened sufficiently to cope with greater sweating. Keeping cool by bathing often, using a mild talcum powder or even resorting to air-conditioning may help until your acclimatize.

HEAT EXHAUSTION

Dehydration or salt deficiency can cause heat exhaustion. Take time to acclimatize to high temperatures and make sure you get sufficient liquids. Wear loose clothing and a broad-brimmed hat. Do not do anything too physically demanding. Salt deficiency is characterized by fatigue, lethargy, headaches, giddiness, and muscle cramps and in this case salt tablets may help. Vomiting or diarrhoea can deplete your liquid and salt levels. Anhydrotic heat exhaustion, caused by an inability to sweat, is quite rare. Unlike the other forms of heat exhaustion, it is likely to strike people who have been in a hot climate for some time, rather than newcomers.

HEAT STROKE

This serious, sometimes fatal, condition can occur if the body's heat-regulating mechanism breaks down and the body temperature rises to dangerouslevels. Long, continuous periods of exposure to high temperatures can leave you vulnerable to heat stroke. You should avoid excessive alcohol or strenuous activity when you first arrive in a hot climate.

The symptoms are feeling unwell, not sweating very much or at all and a high body temperature (39 degree C to 41 degree C or 102 degree F to 106 degree F). Where sweating has ceased the skin becomes flushed and red. Severe, throbbing headaches and lack of co-ordination will also occur, ands the sufferer may be confused or aggressive. Eventually the victim will become delirious or convulse. Hospitalisation is essential, but in the interim get victims out of the sun, remove their clothing, cover them with a wet sheet or towel and then fan continuously.
