Here's a monthly breakup of Kandy's climatic conditions so you can plan when to go:

December to April – This is the best time to enjoy a holiday in Kandy. The weather is dry and mostly pleasant during this time. Unlike India, the weather does not really get very cold even during winters. This is the ideal time to go sightseeing and enjoy trekking in the mountains of Knuckles Mountains range.

May to September – Sri Lanka experiences two monsoon seasons. The period between May to August is the time of the Yala monsoon that brings rains to the southwestern part of Kandy. Sightseeing and trekking can get tricky during this time of the year.

October to November – This is the time when Kandy, like most of Sri Lanka, experiences the Maha monsoon. Again, sightseeing and trekking can get a little difficult during this time of the year.
