The monsoon – heavy, sweeping summer rains – affect the majority of South Asia. Monsoon season in Pakistan is relatively short, and affects only the Himalayan region – the rest of the country is generally dry. The monsoon tends to last from July to September, whereas in wetter India it begins earlier, in June.
