Spring (March through May)

Humidity and temperatures combine to make this season feel warm. Highs range from 100.6°F (38.1°C) and 73.1°F (22.8°C) with warmer temperatures in the later months. Rain is rare with 2 to 3 days of significant precipitation per month. Spring is the second busiest for tourism, which makes it a good time for those looking for things to do.

Summer (June through August)

The middle-year months have hot weather with high temperatures that are quite warm. These months see the most precipitation with 2 to 4 days of precipitation per month. June – August is the busiest season for tourism in Pakistan, so lodging and other accommodations may cost more than usual.

Fall (September through November)

Fall daily highs range from 93.2°F (34°C) and 75.5°F (24.2°C), which will feel very nice given the humidity and wind. It rains or snows a normal amount: 1 to 2 days per month. Tourism is the slowest during these months due to the weather, so hotels may be affordably priced.

Winter (December through February)

Weather is too cold this time of year in Pakistan to be enjoyable for warm weather travelers. The average high during this season is between 73.5°F (23.1°C) and 63.6°F (17.6°C). On average, it rains or snows a small amount: 1 to 3 times per month. These times of year are fairly slow with tourists

 For Visiting Northern Pakistan (Gilgit-Baltistan)

The best time to visit northern Pakistan is during spring and summer. Since these areas are well above sea level , temperatures drop below freezing point in winters at most places. Spring and summer present the best time, but during summer you experience sunny days that will tan your skin in a couple of hours. Why? Because there  is no air pollution, air is thin so the sun hits you hard. Better have a pair of sun glasses and some sunblock cream.

For Visiting Southern Pakistan

Southern Pakistan becomes extremely hot, humid. Cities like Karachi, Lahore, Multan and Bahawalpur experience extreme hot conditions with day time temperatures around 40°c + and not to mention the humidity. Although monsoon settles in during July/August. But temperatures drop only for a couple of days and the extreme weather cycle starts again. It is recommended to visit Southern Pakistan during winter only. The temperatures are fine and during the day you will enjoy the sun. Pakistan’s southern parts are also more related to historical and cultural activities that attracts tourists. These places are well enjoyed during winter season.
