Kerala is a truly unique state in India in that much of the climate and landscape is unlike anything found in most parts of mainland India. In fact the geography and vegetation of Kerala, particularly of the eastern mountainous regions, would remind one of Europe. Sub-zero temperatures have been reported in the upper regions of the Anamudi peak, the highest peak in Kerala and in the Western Ghats, in December. But in the western coastal areas and backwaters one would witness the distinctive coconut palms, crystal clear backwaters and beautiful beaches that characterize a tropical paradise.

The climate of Kerala is also conducive. It is basically warm all through the year. The Southwest Monsoon visits in late May or early June and lasts till August when the sunny weather appears in time for the annual harvest festival of Onam in late August or September (depending on the Malayalam calendar). The Northeast Monsoon visits the state with thunder and lightning in October and November.

Vegetation, Flora & Fauna, Forts

Wherever you travel in Kerala, you’ll find water and greenery. There is also a rich wildlife population including birds, tigers, bears, bison, insects and reptiles in its many forests. Kerala also has a vibrant past. While Hindu dynasties ruled most of the state, conquests by Muslims and other foreign powers led to the construction of many impressive forts such as the Bekal Fort, Palakkad Fort, St. Angelo’s Fort and the Dutch Palace.

Now that you have an idea about Kerala, its geography and climate, here are some destinations you absolutely need to visit:

  • Kumarakom – This is where you can witness the ecology of the beautiful Vembanad Lake and the island of Pathiramanal, home to migratory birds.
