The monsoon season starts mid May and peaks between July and Septmeber. Peak season is between December to February so you will probably come across more tourists. To avoid this you would want to travel between October and November or March and April.
The risks to health whilst travelling will vary between individuals and many issues need to be taken into account, e.g. activities abroad, length of stay and general health of the traveller. It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel. They will assess your particular health risks before recommending vaccines and /or antimalarial tablets.
