Hangzhou Weather in June

Weather: The end of June is when the weather gets hot and rainy. It is the rainiest month of the year. Rain often falls in buckets. The first of Hangzhou's two rainy seasons begins in the middle of June and ends in early July. The second rainy season is in the fall.

The humidity and high temperatures makes the weather very uncomfortable. The average daily high temperature is 29 °C (84 °F), and the average nightly low temperature is 21 °C (70 °F). It rains about 15 days of the month, and there is about 230 mm of total precipitation.

Clothing: Long-sleeves and slacks are enough for night. Bring shorts, summer clothes and rain gear. Wear waterproof shoes for wet weather, and take an umbrella on days when rain is likely. Check the current Hangzhou weather and forecast>>

Top Things to Do in Hangzhou in June

Enjoy West Lake

West Lake is the favorite tourist attraction in the city. There are sidewalks around the lake, and it is a great place for a run or for an extended walk along the shore. Bikes and boats are available for rent. Large crowds come on holidays and sunny weekends.

Hike or Relax at Moganshan

Moganshan is a mountain about a 1½ hour drive from Hangzhou that was a favorite retreat center for both Chinese government leaders and foreigners. There are villas, cabins, and hotels to stay in, and it is especially popular in sweltering Hangzhou summers because it is appreciably cooler. Go for hikes and enjoy the tea on the tea farms. The main peak, Ta Shan, is 724 meters high (2,375 feet).

Hike or Relax at Thousand Islets Lake
