Udupi – No, it is not the famous south-Indian vegetarian cuisine that comes to your mind, but a coastal town of Karnataka. The holy town is also called a temple city since it is home to numerous temples that make it an important location for pilgrimage. The presence of numerous temples can make you think this to be just a pilgrimage location. But you are wrong. Udupi is also known for its wonderful water sports activities like parasailing, windsurfing, skiing including scuba or snorkeling. If you are planning a vacation in Udupi, then you can consider the cottages in Udupi for a comfy and lavish stay.
Who said only the neighboring Kerala is famous for backwaters? Udupi has one of the wonderful backwaters too. It also houses pristine beaches, islands which will keep you engaged all through the trip with its surfing and other adventure sports.
Best Time To Visit Udupi
Summers in Udupi can be really hot, and the local temperature can reach as high as 40 degrees. So, it is recommended to skip the months of March to May if you are allergic to hot weather. Not only the weather, the summer is the time when the crowds are also at its peak due to summer vacations in India. Winter season (October to February) is the best time to visit Udupi due to the low temperature.
Monsoon is also a good period to visit and enjoy the scenic beauty of the lush green & nature along with pleasant weather. And I am sure you will fall in love with the scent of wet earth with those rain!
My recommendation to visit Udupi is the winters from October to February.
