When to Visit Kerala?

The climate in Kerala varies throughout the year with the driest and most popular months being over November, December and January. With the low rainfall, travel is easy, there is a lot of sunshine and the risks of mosquito bites and general malady are reduced. However, even during periods of low rainfall, cyclonic activity in the Bay of Bengal or off Tamil Nadu can bring a few days rain to Kerala.

Kerala is a tropical state lying to the North of the Equator and so the weather is always hot and the states proximity to the sea from both East and West makes rainfall a feature of life all through the year. In the hottest dry months before monsoon, it always feels as though it might rain but then doesn't and that can make for sticky and uncomfortable. However in comparison to the North and centre of India, the climate is comfortable.
