10. Ayurveda Centre

Kerala is quite famous for its Ayurvedic centres. According to the ancient texts of Ayurveda, monsoons is the best time to undergo Ayurvedic treatments as the air is clean, moist and fresh. September is an ideal month as the rains leave the air dust free which is perfect for opening the pores of the skin. The treatment during this period is considered highly effective.

There is a reason Kerala is a much-hyped tourist destination. Impressive landscape, fascinating culture and distinct cuisine are some of the top reasons people visit Kerala. Visiting in September saves considerable expenses and renders the opportunity to witness spectacular scenery just after the monsoons.
