The best time to visit Kerala

The best time to visit Kerala depends on what you're looking to do as the region has three specific seasons.

December, January & February are cooler and drier, yet busier, months;

March, April & May is the hot and humid season; and the rest of the year is the southwest and northeast monsoon season.

When working out the best time to visit Kerala, we do not recommend travelling during the monsoon, which peaks Jun-Aug with torrential rain and widespread flooding. Meanwhile, in the dry months of Dec-Jan, Kerala is flooded with tourists. Come immediately post monsoon and the rain has turned forests, mountains and waterfalls to levels of lusciousness that look as if you have a filter on your camera. With the exception of the mountains, it’s best from September to March. The temperature runs from 23 to 32°C. Bring a brolly though, as it can rain anytime.
