Munnar calls you with open arms to enjoy the charm of the hills and to rejuvenate yourself. It has invigorating climate and can be visited throughout the year except the Kerala monsoon(June/July), as it rains cats and dogs in this place. Read on to find the best season to visit Munnar:

Summer (April to May)

Beat the heat of the summer season by treating yourself to the luxury of being in a hill station like Munnar. The temperature here seldom exceeds 20 degrees in summers offering you a pleasant stay. This place becomes a retreat from the harsh sun of the season, and thus makes it an ideal time to visit Munnar. You should carry light woolens if planning to visit during this time.

Winters (August to November and February to March)

This is the best time to visit Munnar as the weather is pleasantly cold with hardly any incident of rain. September is the best month as the rains have ceased by then and the waterfalls on the way to Munnar are in full bloom. The occasional showers give Munnar a misty atmosphere and add to the charm of the green mountains. Remember to carry woolens as the temperature can drop quite low. 

Peak Winters (December to January)

Since Munnar is at an altitude of around 2000 metres above mean sea level, it experiences extreme winters with temperature dropping as low as three degree but without any snow like the north Indian hill stations. A lot of tourists come during Christmas and New Year to celebrate them in this enchanting hill station. Please remember to carry heavy woolens if scheduling your visit to Munnar during this time of the year. It is not a good time for people who are averse to cold temperatures.

Monsoon (June to July)

It literally pours during monsoon in Munnar, so try to avoid visiting during this time. The roads become really slippery and it becomes close to impossible to go for sightseeing or other activities like trekking or mountain biking. Even if you are in Munnar during monsoon do keep in mind to to travel during the day as the nights are misty.

Visit this hill station anytime of the year, but the best season to visit Munnar is from August to November and February to March.
