Planning a trip to Alleppey and wondering when to come? Well, don’t worry as we give an overview of city’s weather so that you can plan your trip accordingly. Alleppey has a tropical climate, like the rest of Kerala and is best visited during the winter months.

  • Summers (March to May)

    March experiences just a few traces of heat and thus the climate is still in the warm range, suitable for sightseeing, beach activities and various water sports such as water scooters, high speed boat, swimming and surfing. April and May are the hottest months with the temperature soaring up to 37 degree Celsius. But if you can bear the heat, then you can definitely enjoy beach activities and water sports. This time is ideal for budget holidays and you get houseboats and hotels at cheaper rates as compared to the peak season (November to February). Light cottons, loads of water-proof sunscreen and a bottle of water in your bag is recommended if you come during this time.
  • Monsoons (June to August)

    Try to avoid these months as the monsoon brings with itself high humidity which makes sightseeing just unbearable and almost impossible. Travel is made difficult by the rains clogging the roads. July receives the maximum rainfall making beach activities impossible. But don’t be disappointed, as this time the natural beauty of Alleppey is at its peak, a true paradise for nature enthusiasts and people who love rain.
  • Winters (September to February)

    This is probably the best time to visit Alleppey as the weather is quite peasant making travel and sightseeing very comfortable. The temperature varies between 17°C to 32°C and is an ideal period for honeymooning, houseboat vacations, beach activities and backwater explorations. Winters is also the time for various festivals and celebrations including the famous Snake Boat Race. The period from December to February is the peak tourist season and experiences high inflow tourists in the city. Light woollens are recommended as the nights become a little chilly.

You can visit Alleppey anytime of the year barring the monsoon months (June to August).
