Climate Of South India

The best time to visit tropical South India is during the winter months, but even then there are some distinct regional variations.

The peak season is from December to February when the climate is at its most pleasant – Kerala is its least humid at this time, it is dry and daytime temperatures range from 22 to 30’C. The hill stations, such as Munnar, are cooler and you will need a fleece, pullover, or jacket in the morning and evening. Temperatures and humidity begin to build from late March. The monsoon rains fall from May to October in Kerala and on the east coast of Tamil Nadu, they extend through to November which is the wettest month, though it’s best to carry an umbrella and be prepared for a shower at any time. 

Ayurvedic health treatments are said to be most effective during the monsoon. Mysore in Karnataka celebrates the festival of Dussehra in October by illuminating the whole city – an absolutely magical time to visit.

Sikkim tour package is so popular all over the world because the state has five seasons: winter, summer, spring, autumn, and monsoon season.

best time to visit South India

South India is a beautiful collection of woods, rivers, temples, and ruins. Ensconced by seas and backwaters, this mass of land is truly peninsular. Because of its unique setting and three massive water bodies surrounding it, most of the coastal states of South India like Kerala, Karnataka, Tamilnadu experience maritime tropical climes. While the interiors of Karnataka are more continental. Due to the clear demarcation of three seasons in the Indian subcontinent, South India experiences the three seasons of summer, monsoon, and winter throughout the year.

  • Summer (March-May) – The Great Indian Summer is really the kind of season most frozen countries wish for. Long days of sunshine, thick humid air, and lots of salt in the sea. That is exactly the kind of summer that South India experiences from March to May. This part of India, being closest to the equator, should theoretically be hotter than the rest. But because it is also surrounded by water bodies on three sides (the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean), mostly maritime influence prevails, bringing down the average summer temperatures to 35°C on coasts like Tamil Nadu and Kerala and 40°C in the interiors of Karnataka.

The hill station destinations like Munnar, Coorg, and Ooty are still pleasant and endurable through the summers and give a much-needed respite from all the heat. May is the hottest month and marks the gateway into an impending monsoon. You can visit the hill stations during summer but most plains and lowland/ seaside places should not be visited after April.

  • Monsoon (June-September): If rains, mist, and mud are your thing then maybe monsoon is a good season to visit South India. With the setting of monsoon season, the hill stations become misty, lush, and beautiful while the interiors cool down. The beaches may be wild as waters get choppy and flooding might spoil your plans for outdoor activities. Most South Indian cities receive high rainfall from the South West Monsoon Winds while Tamil Nadu also receives rain in winters because of the North-East Trade Winds, averaging to 945 mm in this area.

However, some major festivals fall in the monsoon season, like the famed Onam of Kerala (September), Rath Yatra (July), etc. The Ayurvedic massages and treatments are also said to fare better results in this season. Therefore you have some incentives for monsoon in South India

  • Winter (October-February): Winter in the South is characterized by cool climes and dry skies, except in Tamil Nadu, where the North-East Trade Winds bring another bout of rains. Hill stations like Ooty, Coorg, and Munnar, etc garner much lower temperate, anywhere between 5-20°C. The plains and seas side’s experience a much more maritime winter, with temperatures between 12-30°C. Karnataka and Kerala experience what is called tropical winters. This season marks the setting of tourism in almost all South Indian destinations and hence the crowd goes on swelling up until the end of February.
