What is the best time to visit Thenmala?

Nestled in the beautiful district of Kollam in Kerala, Thenmala is best explored when the skies are clear and the weather is pleasant. Owing to its geographical location on the south-west coast of India, the region explicitly experiences a tropical climate; therefore, the atmosphere is mostly humid. Hence, the Winter and Spring season i.e, December to February is an ideal time to visit Thenmala. This portion of kerala experiences torrential downpours and scorching summers, hence peak monsoons and summers are highly not recommended to tourists. The rest of the year, the region experiences pleasant weather with a temperature that ranges between 17 degree celcius and 32 degree celcius, allowing tourists to explore this scenic landscape.

Thenmala in Summer (March - May)

While spring-summer time is a relatively sorted time of the year to visit the picturesque location of Thenmala, the summer season is not recommended. The season begins in March and lasts till May every year. For those who wish to visit Thenmala during this period, visiting in March is advisable. The temperature hovers between 23°C and 33°C in the region. Then on, the heat soars high making it uncomfortable. April and May are the hottest months of the year which also brings unexpected showers. Venturing out to visit the attractions or exploring the region is bound to be exhausting and must be avoided during summers.

Thenmala in Winter (December - February)

After the monsoons have faded away entirely in November, winter season begins in December and goes on till February. November is the month when Thenmala experiences a transition from monsoon to winter. So there is quite some rainfall but pockets of cold or chilly climate during the day, especially after sunset, subtly whisper that the winter season is nearing and will stay for the next few months. Between December and February, the temperature hovers between a maximum of 33°C and a minimum of 16°C. Also, tourists need to be aware that January is the coldest month and the climate becomes extremely dry. So appropriate essentials like lotions, woollens etc. must be carried to make the trip enjoyable and comfortable.

For those coming from colder regions, the peak time of the day may get a little too hot; however, the rest of the day is perfect for exploring the scenic beauty of the eco-tourism site, soaking in some sun and for breathing in some unpolluted air. Nights are also relatively cooler, and campers can make the most of it. The ldimuzhagan camp attracts quite a large number of campers during this time of the year. Treks and nature walks are an all-time favourite in the region. The Woody Rockwood trek through the Western Ghats, the Myristica Walk to witness the delicate creatures thriving in the swamps, the Wet and Wild trail, Evergreen Trail, a visit to the Shendureny Wildlife Sanctuary, Mount Hiking, Birdwatching, exploring the fauna and flora and the Reservoir Walk are some of the activities one can go for while visiting Thenmala during the winter season.

Thenmala in Monsoon (June - September)

This eco-tourism site of South India receives plenty of rainfall each year between June and November (average annual precipitation of 2800 mm). The region gets South West Monsoons between June and September while October and November bring the North East Monsoons. So, those who wish to experience a little bit of the Malabar Monsoons can plan a visit in June which is the beginning of the season or in November when the North East Monsoons are fading away. The rest of the season is not recommended to tourists owing to the heavy rains as its geographical location is close to the Arabian sea.

This time of the year could prove to be a steal for budget travellers and monsoon lovers. The thrill or the romance of monsoons can be experienced to the fullest if one looks forward to the surprises or adventures that come when they let nature prepare their itinerary. Packing good raingear and other essentials is a must. Also, monsoon treks or nature walks through the Western Ghats that are covered with dense greenery; passing through the rubber or tea plantations, breathing in the fresh air and watching the raindrops trickle down the earth and the enchanting scent of damp mud must not be missed while you're here.
