The monsoon season brings with it enormous amounts of downpour and a poetic atmosphere one can get lost in. Starting from June and lasting all the way till September, this period sees heavy to moderate rainfalls. Backwater services remain closed due to the incessant drizzle and rising water levels. Since monsoon is the ideal time for Ayurveda treatments, one can find ayurvedic resorts and indulge in peaceful massages. This season’s tranquil atmosphere and soul-soothing energy are something you will never forget. It is one of Kumarakom’s best time to visit for monsoon lovers.
