Monsoon season in Thekkady has a charm of it’s own. The surroundings come to life with the rains and the temperature drops after the heat of the summer, making everything pleasant. With Thekkady boasting forests and plantations as it’s main attractions, the lush greenery that comes with the monsoon is something that needs to be experienced. However, getting to see animals becomes a bit of a tough task with visibility dropping as well. This makes the monsoon the ideal time to visit Chellarkovil though, as the vibrant landscape and the bubbling waterfalls are at their best during this season. Anyone visiting Thekkady at this time however, is advised to carry protective clothing and umbrellas as the showers can get fairly heavy.
It is evident though, that there is no real best time to visit Thekkady and merely a question of what the traveller is looking for.
