Best Time To travel

Winter Season -  November to February

The winter months are considered the best time to visit Kerala. The weather is cool, dry, and comfortable, making it ideal for outdoor activities and sightseeing. This is also the peak tourist season, so popular destinations like Munnar, Alleppey, and Kochi can be quite crowded.

Summer Season - March to May

These months are less crowded compared to winter, and you might find better deals on accommodations. If you're interested in Ayurvedic treatments and therapies, this is a good time to experience them.

Monsoon Season - June to September

The landscapes turn lush green, waterfalls come to life, and there's a serene ambiance. The monsoon is also a great time for Ayurveda treatments and rejuvenation.
