Climate Considerations & Clothing

Best Season : The Yatra to the govardhan hill is open throughout the year. The summer months of May, June and July and the festival period of Radhaashtmi and Ekadshi witness peak rush. One of the most important day in Govardhan is Guru Poornima (Also called “Mudia Poono”). On this day, Millions of devotees come to Govardhan for parikrama.

One needs to carry woollen clothing during the winters. For the rest of the year, loose and comfortable clothes like lower and shorts for male are good. Fancy shoes and footwear make it difficult to walk on parikrama and footwear with flat or platform soles are therefore recommended. For those going on foot, a walking stick is very helpful in negotiating the steep climbs. Umbrellas and rain coats are required during the rainy seasons.
