Which is The Best Time to Visit Munnar Hill Station?

Munnar is one of the most popular hill stations in India. This place attracts a lot of visitors from western countries every year. This article explains the best season to visit Munnar to explore the most places at this hill station. I had been staying in Munnar for four years, and I know the best season for tourists. The climate of the Munnar changes with the season. We can narrow down the seasons in Munnar into three.


Winter, Summer, and Monsoon are the three major seasons in Munnar. Let me explain the effect of each season on tourists.

Things to Remember While Visiting Munnar in Winter
Winter starts from November last and ends in February. In my personal experience, it is the best time to Visit Munnar.

You can experience cool weather both day and night. December last to January mid, you might experience the coldest weather.

The temperature at night will fall below zero degrees Celsius. It is the best time for Honeymoon trips to Munnar.

Many tour operators and hotels offer good Honeymoon packages at this season. Since it is the best season, the hotel rents may be a bit high.

So I suggest you book your hotel or resort to stay in advance before coming to Munnar.


Planning a Summer Trip to Munnar
Summer in Munnar starts in March and ends by the end of May. During summer, you will experience hot days and cool nights.

Even though the days are hot, you will not face issues with traveling. You must carry light cotton clothes for days.

It is the best season for Summer vacation plans. If you are planning for visiting Munnar with your family, it is the best time.

March to May is the best time for traveling to adjacent places too.


Monsoon Tourism in Munnar
Monsoon starts in June and ends in October. I must say, it is the offseason while comparing to the rest of the year.

However, many Travel groups offer Monsoon tourism plans. Since it is the offseason in Munnar, you can get the best hostel rooms at cheap rates.

If you visit Munnar in Monsoon, you will see heavy rains, and it may affect your travel abilities. In Monsoon, you can experience the beauty of the waterfalls in Munnar.
