SPRING SEASON IN KERALA: FEBRUARY- MARCH:
February can be considered as the beginning of spring season in Kerala. The climate is moderately warm and pleasant. During February, large number of tourists visits Kerala. Days are very pleasant but nights are a bit cold. It is the ideal time for visiting Cochin City as the weather is cool and dry. It is advised to carry some woolen cloths while trekking up the hilly regions, and also carry an umbrella for shielding against bright sunlight and occasional bouts of afternoon rainfall.
After the summer equinoxes on March 21st, the temperature turns warmer. Summer season in Kerala begins towards March end. The days are sunny and moderately warm, but the nights are very pleasant. These are the best months for visiting Wildlife Sanctuaries, National Parks, Beaches and Backwaters. It is a good time for adventure activities like Trekking, Rock Climbing, Hiking, Jeep safari, Boating and Bird watching.
