Dehradun valley  has a moderate weather through out the year barring a few days in summers when the temperature shoots up to 40 degrees. Being in the close proximity with the Shivalik and the Himalayan range on one side and the Ganga and Yamuna rivers on the other Dehradun experiences mild breeze even during summers. The Rajaji National Park adds to the pleasant Dehradun weather. The nights are cooler and the days are a bit hot in summers . But the rest of the year the weather is clear and crispy. Rainy season lasts for almost two and a half month  starting from July. Winters are chilling and the most happening time.  Heavy snow fall takes place at the end of December and in January in a popular hill station Mussoorie and Dhanaulti which are not very far from Dehradun. Whatever may be the season Dehradun has been a all time favourite since the British rule.
