Travelling to Kerala

Best time to visit Kerala

Kerala has three distinct seasons: the dry season (December to February), summer season (March to May), and monsoon season (June to November). The best time to visit Kerala depends on the traveller’s interests. Each season offers unique experiences for all. The monsoon season, for example, is the best time to experience the Ayurveda treatments. Those looking to have a pleasant holiday without weather disturbances should book Kerala flights during the dry or summer season. However, it is the peak season too, so it might be hard to snag good hotel deals and cheap flight tickets to Kerala during this period.

Things to do in Kerala

Blessed with amazing natural wonders and scenic spots, Kerala offers unforgettable opportunities to pamper yourself with nature-based experiences. Start your adventure in Athirappilly Falls, the largest waterfall in Kerala. Then, take a jeep ride to Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, home to tigers, elephants and some other wild animals. Visit the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, too.

Experience the village life in Kodanad, a rural riverside village of Ernakulam district. And never leave Kerala without witnessing Theyyam, a ritual form of worship in Kerala. You can watch live performances in Muchilot Bhagavathy, Pulimuthappan Kavu, Sree Mavilaakkavu, and Mallom Kollom Temple.

Aside from nature and culture attractions, Kerala is arguably a paradise for south Indian food lovers. Try puttu, a staple food shaped cylindrically and topped with grated coconut. It is usually eaten with kadala curry made of black chickpeas. Another must-try is the signature dish, Kerala prawn curry. And if you want halal food, thalassery biriyani (the fragrant Indian steamed rice) is highly recommended.
