Best time to visit
October to March. But if you don’t mind the monsoon, you might like to experience this unique event when the weather can be a little cooler, too. Discounted rates are available from May to September.
What to bring
Clothing that is loose fitting and suited to the warm weather and the local sensitivities and etiquette. Sunglasses, suncream and insect repellent are essential and plenty of books if you like reading (we have a small collection of books). Suggested readings – Arundhatti Roy’s ‘God of Small Things’ which was set in Aymanam, a village further upstream and Alexander Frater’s ‘Chasing the Monsoon’ which, like the monsoon, begins in Kerala.
