Sight Seeing Places

The hilly terrain and high altitude influences the Kottayam climate. It has a blend of tropical and equatorial climate.

Summer - By March the summer season begins at Kumarakom. The temperature gets too high sometimes upto 38°c which makes it harsh for some. Tourist inflow decreases by this time.

Monsoon - June to September is the period when Kumarakom is hit by the Monsoon. This is the best time to spot some rare birds which visit Kumarakom during the Monsoon. You cannot go for a Houseboat cruise though, as it will be raining heavily, it is risky to float through the backwaters. During this season Kumarakom looks as if it is wearing a bright green coat, and is therefore a good time to spend some time walking around exploring the inner areas of Kumarakom village.

Winter - Most suitable time to visit Kumarakom. With temperatures ranging from 18c to 24c, Kumarakom is cool and pleasant. You can enjoy the sights around the backwaters to the fullest during winter starting from November and ends by February.
