Please help resolve following questions: 1) What is the best time to visit? 2) What time of the year has least rains? 3) I am considering travelling 2nd week of June but have mixed reviews regarding amount of rains around that time. 4) Planning to travel with hubby for 3 nights, after that would like to also stay at a nice fancy hotel as well, driving distance from Samasati.
