Kerala lies near the equator. Based on that the tropical climate is pleasant throughout the year. One can divide the seasons into three broad categories:
Summer: March to May
Temperatures rise steadily from March and culminate in May with an average temperature of 30 ° C. During these months, the precipitation is always low, and in May there is little rain.
Monsoon Season: June to October
June until August has the typical rain periods of the monsoon, but does not necessarily mean you can’t go out between showers. The humidity is higher, the temperatures are about 29 ° C. According to traditional teaching, this time, June-September is highly recommended for Ayurveda treatment. Since the climate conditions support the treatment and enhance the effect of the therapies.
Winter: November to February
These months are considered as high season due to the temperate climate. Low humidity and showers ensure pleasant temperatures around 28 °.
