Kerala FAQ's

When is the best time to visit Kerala?

It’s always a good time to travel to Kerala; it all comes down to your preferences. If you would like it to be relatively less crowded by tourists, don’t mind breaking a sweat, and wiping it off your eyes one too many times, then summer (March-May) is for you. If you like lush green and mystical surroundings, albeit wet, then monsoon (June-October) is for you. For the rest, as is for many, winter (November-February) is the best time to visit.

Is Kerala safe for solo women travelers?

Absolutely. That being said, as is the case with traveling anywhere in the world, exercise caution. In general, you should be all right. Keralites are quite helpful and a friendly bunch.

When is the best season to visit Kerala for Ayurveda Therapy?

Undoubtedly, the monsoon season (June-October). The herbs and oils used in Ayurveda rejuvenation therapies are better absorbed in the body during the rainy season. Lack of dust and humidity around this time allows the body to expel all toxins as the pores open up.

Is it safe to travel to and across Kerala during monsoon?

Yes, it is safe to travel across Kerala during monsoon. It is also advised to always keep one eye on the weather forecast and be flexible with your travel plans in case there is too heavy a downpour.

What are some of the must-try dishes in Kerala?

When in Kerala, the first cuisine to sink your teeth into is the Malabar Cuisine, including Appam, Malabar Duck Curry, Malabar Chicken, and Mutton Biryani, Malabar Parotta, and Beef Kurumulakittathu. Desserts like Paal Paayasam and Ada Pradhaman should also be on the top of your must-try list.

What is the best way to travel to Kerala?

Kerala enjoys solid connectivity via roads, rail, and air. Slow-paced road trip, a rail journey across the Indian countryside, or a quick landing—take your pick.
