Best time to visit Kerala
Each season in Kerala provides its own unique experiences to the travelers.You should first think about your expectations and know what Kerala can offer in each season before making a call.
Today Kerala has become an all year destination for international as well as domestic travelers due to its moderate climate round the year. With Arabian Sea on one border and Western Ghats on the other, Kerala enjoys a humid equatorial tropic climate (Mean daily temperatures range from 19.8 °C (67 °F) to 36.7 °C (98 °F)).
The Peak Season in Kerala Tourism is from October-February.
-Majority of international travelers visit Kerala in this window.
-In this season, temperature will be moderate and rains will be less frequent which provides a pleasant climate for sightseeing and roaming around.
-Most of the tourist places will be open and accessible to travelers
–Perfect time to enjoy the sunny beaches of Kerala
–Prefect for sightseeing/trekking/travel intensive Holidays
-Like all other tourist destinations in Kerala also accommodation/Houseboats charges will be around 20-40 % higher rates than the normal Tariff from Dec 15 to Jan 15 (High Peak Season Special rates )
So for more better value for money plan your holidays in October-February season but outside Dec 15 to Jan 15 window (unless you are planning to spend your New year celebrations in Kerala)
Due to Northeast Monsoon (“Thulavarsham”) october also might be witnessing some rainfall so if you want to completly skip rain then plan from late November onwards
March to May will be season of hot summer in Kerala with temperature rising past 35 degree Celsius occasionally. Hill Stations such as Munnar and Wayanad will be the favorite spots during this season.
-These sunny days will be providing best views in all the viewpoints and is a delight to every photographer out there to capture some of the most beautiful frames.
– Extended intense Trekking holidays to thick forest (where trekking is closed or risky in other seasons) will be easier and viable in Summer.
-Ensure that you are upgrading to A/C transportation/accommodation in this season.
Monsoons (June-September) (The Southwest Monsoon – “Edavappathi” ) Kerala will be in its greenest best and develops its on romantic aroma .Nature gains a unique charm in monsoons helping to relax and unwind yourself. Besides most of the tourist places will be less crowded which will provide better experiences to the travelers.
–Waterfalls will be in its best during monsoons and numerous small waterfalls will be created in and around after a heavy rain. If you are planning for a laid back relaxed holiday with less sightseeing and more experiences then Monsoons are the best time to visit Kerala. These days Honeymooners are preferring Kerala more and more during the monsoons but again it totally depends on what you expect from your vacation.
-According to Ayurveda, Monsoon is the best season for rejuvenation therapies. During the Monsoon season, the atmosphere remains dust-free and cool, opening the pores of the body to the maximum, making it most receptive to herbal oils and therapy. If you are planning for any Ayurvedic rejuvenation/treatments then monsoons will be an ideal time to visit Kerala.
–Discounts and off season rates Kerala Tourism offers at this time.
Most of the top Hotels/Resorts/Homestays/TreeHouses/FarmStays/PlantationStays will be offering good discounts from their regular Tariff (off-season rates) and you will be able to get better class accommodation options in monsoons comparing to the peak season for the same cost. This makes monsoon tourism much better value for the money. Due to all these factors Monsoon tourism is gaining momentum in Kerala.
Sometimes monsoons might be delayed and so it will be safer to plan for late june or July if you want to enjoy the Monsoon rains in Kerala
– Frequent rains and rough sea might spoil your Beach Holiday
plans.Moonsoon are not a great time to visit Kerala Beaches
(though you can visit beaches between the rains)
– In case of heavy rains some of the waterfalls might be closed(or may have
restricted entry ) due to dangerous water currents
