Kerala is the first state to receive the monsoon. It is observed that most of the people avoid travelling to the state in the monsoons. But by traveling there in the monsoons, one can experience the most fascinating weather and view some of the most beautiful sights. You truly get the answer why Kerala is called as God’s Own Country.
Find below some of the reasons why to visit Kerala in the Monsoons :
Romancing the Rains
Romance does not sound more poetic than the pitter patter sound of rains coming down along with the cool breeze that flows with it. Here the monsoon is more in form of several short downpours than a continuous all day rains. This climate is one of the best for Couples seeking a nice Romantic Getaway in midst of nature.
Kerala is also famous for its beautiful backwaters. The tranquil atmosphere in the monsoons makes them one of the most visited spots in the season. Views of Lush Green Palms and a fantastic waterbody of the Lake Vembanad backed up by various canals can be experienced either through a houseboat or a stay property on the backwaters. Alleppey, Kumarakom, Kollam, Kochi, etc are some of the spots that can be explored for the backwaters.
Exploring the Hills
A monsoon visit to Kerala remains incomplete without a rendezvous with the hills. Places like Munnar, Thekkaady, Wayanad, Vagamon, etc explode with the green carpet. The Tea Estates, the Spice Gardens, The Cultivations add up to the natural greenery of the forest reserves of Attapadi, Silent Valley, Thattekad, Periyar and many more. Whatever remains is fulfilled by the waterfalls like Attukad, Athirapalli, Cheeyaparya, etc in and around these hills.
Monsoons also add up to the festivities of the state. Onam is arguably the most important festival of Kerala and is celebrated statewide. The festival is in accordance of the homecoming of the benevolent Asura King Lord Mahabali, the grandson of Bhakt Prahlad and the festivities go on for 10 days. Adding to it, monsoons are also the time for the world famous Snake Boat Races known as Vallam Kalli in Local Language. Races like Champakulam Moolam, Nehru Trophy and Aranamula attract a lot of people, both from India and Abroad.
