Kerala, your ideal Monsoon vacation spot

The best time to experience the vividness of nature is monsoon and Kerala can be said to be one of the most alluring places to visit during this time of the year. During this time, the state’s backwaters are surrounded by lush greenery, waterfalls appear inviting and the entire landscape covers itself with a refreshed look. Rains have a distinctive charm in Kerala; below are some of the unique experiences you can explore on your monsoon vacation:

The backwaters: The magical backwaters of Kerala bring to mind green backdrop and floating houseboats, in monsoon this picture becomes even better.  The sound of rains hitting the roof of the houseboat, viewing the rain from the houseboat window, enjoying the raindrops fall on you while you are absorbing the refreshing view around, sipping hot coffee amidst the clouds on your moving houseboat or enjoying a conversation with your loved one; the joy of these simple things will captivate you. To make the most of your Kerala trip, be sure to add Alleppey, the backwaters hub to your list.

Ayurveda goodness: Pampering oneself with rejuvenating spa treatments during a monsoon vacation is complete bliss, something you will feel after an ayurvedic spa indulgence in Kerala. The Ayurveda treatments of Kerala are world renowned for their effectiveness; from bringing down stress levels to tackling health issues, you are certain to find a cure for every problem here. Soak up the aroma of the herbs and let nature’s magic woo your senses. Kovalam is the best place to indulge in herbal spa therapy and laze around by the beach side thereafter.

Explore the wild life sanctuaries: Kerala is home to more than ten wild life sanctuaries, which during monsoons are buzzing with greenery and freshness. Watching elephants in a playful mood enjoying the rains or spotting a deer running around trying to escape the raindrops; these rare sights can be witnessed the best in Kerala. Chenthuruni, Aralam and Wayanad are a few of the sanctuaries that are open during monsoons, be sure to visit one of them and take back picture perfect memories of your wildlife expedition.

Kerala truly looks like abode of the gods during monsoons and has a unique charm. Nature scattered around and the scenic views become even more enticing and inviting at this time. So pack your bags and be ready to get drenched this June.
