Blank Map of India

India’s climate is strongly shaped by two significant geographical features: the Himalayas and the Thar Desert. The barrier effect of the mountain range stops cold winds coming in from Central Asia. The physical barrier of the Himalayas keeps much of India warmer than other countries at similar latitudes.

Meanwhile, moisture-laden southwest monsoon winds are drawn towards arid regions such as the Thar throughout the summer months (June–October), providing essential rainfall for many areas across this vast nation. Four main climatic groupings can typically be found in different parts of India: tropical wet, tropical dry, subtropical humid, and montane.
