The climatic conditions here do not pose great risks or challenges to the visitors. The temperature is relatively moderate and varies from 22 to 34 degree Celsius. The weather is agreeable all year, thanks to the proximity of Lake Vembanad and the constant flow of cool wind from the lake to the land.
Kumarakom receives two monsoons – the southwest monsoon (June to August) and the northeast monsoon in November. During the southwest monsoon, backwater cruising is not allowed. The average rainfall is 1100 mm. The best time to visit is between November and March, but there is no dearth of tourists any time of the year.
