Best Time To Visit Wayanad

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Though, Wayanad has a salubrious atmosphere all through the year, the best time to visit Wayanad is during the months of winters, i.e. from September to April. Nestled in the Western Ghats, Wayanad is considered one of the best hill stations in  Kerala.

To get a better idea of the best time to visit this hill station, have a look at the below guide.

March - May(20°C to 35 °C):

This is the time when the weather is hot yet with a cool wind coming in from the forests. In May, the rains are unpredictable, pouring sometimes in torrents. But Wayanad in summer is still better than the plains of Kerala.

June - September(17°C to 29 °C):

This is when the south-west and the north-east monsoons set in making it the best season to visit Wayanad. The rains bring with them a glow that is seen to be believed. The mist covers the mountains in the morning turning it into a dreamland during monsoon in Wayanad. This is the time when trekkers throng to the Western Ghats as the flora thrives and the animals and birds come in droves.

December - February(22°C to 34 °C):

Though each season has its charm, winters are the best time to visit Wayanad. This is the preferred season for tourists and the best time to visit Wayanad for honeymoon.

Camping and road trips in the Western Ghats, wildlife tracking, video, and photography and visiting the famous heart-shaped lake on the top of the hills in Wayanad are the popular activities making winters the best season to visit Wayanad.

Famous Festivals Celebrated in Wayanad

Karthigai: This is also called the light festival in Wayanad. All the families take part in this festival and light a bonfire out of all the useless materials. And each family of the village lights a torch made of palm leaves from this bonfire and takes it to their houses. The houses in Wayanad lit up and sparkle during this one of the most auspicious Wayanad festivals.

Ashthami Rohini: This festival marks the birthday of Lord Krishna and is celebrated in Wayanad with great pomp and show. People visit Krishna temples to offer their prayers to Lord Krishna. Many cultural shows, dances, and rituals are performed during this festival.

Thirunelli Festival: This festival is celebrated annually during the month of April on the eve of Lord Vishnu. On this auspicious festival, people take a dip in the river Papanashini. It is said that taking a dip in the holy waters of Papanashini helps to shred off all the sins.

      Everything was perfect about the trip. Thanks to Suneel and team for taking care of every minute details. It was a memorable Kerala trip for us. All the hotels were top quality. Only I wanted to mention, the Dew Drops hotel was very far from Munnar city. Apart from this, overall experience was very pleasant. The taxi driver was more like a guide and very helpful. The boathouse was clean and the food was great!! Thanks team.

    • Trip to Kerala

      the trip was good. but had a bad experience in the house boat of allepy. the bot which was given was full of insects, lizards and bed bugs. our children were not able to stay and sleep in the house boat. we had called many times to agent to resolve the matter of house boat but the house boat has not given any response to agent or us. it was horrible experience our child and wife were frightened and this had turned our good experience to bad. the driver which was appointed was restless and doesnot want to go anywhere as suggested by us. the rooms apart from thekkady hotel were of average category's
