Best Time to Visit Kerala

Nestled between the Western Ghats on the East and the Arabian Sea on the West, the narrow strip of land in Southern India, known as Kerala, is a destination of a lifetime. Before you plan on a Kerala holiday, it is important to know the best time to visit Kerala and that it has three tourist seasons. Peak season which ranges from September to March, Off Season in Kerala which is from April to May and Monsoon Season from June to August. Each season has its own unique charm.

Peak season in Kerala from September to March is the best time to visit Kerala for holidays. In these months, the weather is warm but not very hot. Summer season from March to May is hot and very humid and is best avoided. The summer months bring a slower pace, humid weather, fewer crowds, and lower hotel rates in Kerala. Hill Stations in Kerala like Munnar and Wayanad are popular even in a low season as they are relatively cooler as compared to the rest of the state. Monsoon season between June and August is a good time to visit Kerala for Ayurveda treatments. The wet and cold climate in monsoons is ideal for Ayurveda rejuvenation programs. 

Some of the best destinations in Kerala to visit in Peak season include Munnar, Thekkady, Kovalam, Alleppey and Kumarakom. It is advisable to book well in advance so that you don't have to go through the last minute rush to get the best deals! Explore the heavenly region of Kerala with our Kerala tour packages and Kerala honeymoon packages
