Kerala Holidays During Monsoon

by Madhav Srinivasan 5 year, 8 months ago

Kerala – God’s own country as the tourist brochures claim, is indeed a scenic paradise, preserving its rustic charm and most of its verdant beauty. The monsoon season is a prime time to visit this state, due to the rains and Onam festivities...

The name Kerala evokes images of endless coconut groves and paddy fields. The soothing green sight of nature stretched out endlessly around you can calm your racing thoughts and pacify your mind. At any time of the year, the locales of Kerala can indeed be a feast to the eye.

Monsoon is the time of fresh and thriving life everywhere in India and visiting Kerala during the rains can be a fascinating experience if you can stand the wetness and mists and flooded roads.

Why You Should Take a Monsoon Trip

Onam Festival

The monsoon season is the time of the biggest festival in Kerala, Onam. This festival is celebrated in many different ways across the state and it brings out the ethnic colors and culture of Kerala as no other time of the year does.


A part of the Onam festivities are the many temple boat parades and the fascinating Snake Boat Races that are traditionally held around temples, most famously, the Ambalappuzha Krishna temple.


These can be quite exciting to witness, and planning your trip during the monsoon can help you do exactly that.


Ayurvedic Vacations

Monsoon is also considered to be the best time in traditional Ayurvedic Medicine for the healing process, as it is believed that the rains that refresh the world can also rejuvenate the body and aid in various Ayurvedic therapies.


Kerala has a long tradition of Ayurvedic practices, and Ayurvedic health vacations are now becoming increasingly popular. This monsoon, give yourself a chance to freshen up your body, mind and soul, with a wonderful Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Therapy at one of the prime locations in Kerala.


What You Need to Watch Out For

Kerala is an inviting place to visit, even during the monsoons, but you have to keep in mind that during the monsoon, Kerala is wet – in fact very wet. The routes can get flooded; the roads can get muddy and slippery and develop huge pot holes.


You will have to be traveling through heavy rains most of the time. Mists are another hazard during the rainy season and also, the many beautiful beaches in Kerala can be out of bounds during this stormy weather. Even if you just plan on visiting the temples, you will still have to brave the rains and winds.

If you do not mind all these, you can go ahead and plan a trip to Kerala this monsoon.


Kerala can be a beautiful monsoon destination if you are ready to brave the occasional mists and muddy roads and other usual monsoon hazards.
