Thekkady is a round-the-year tourist spot. However, the winters are the much loved time to visit Thekkady as the weather will be cool and pleasant during the day and cold at night. If you love the rain and wish to enjoy tropical downpours, a visit to Thekkady during monsoons will be rewarding. Just after monsoon, the land is lush green and has a washed clean look. It is the best time for photographers to get their best clicks. The summer season is great for those interested in watching wildlife. This is the time when wild animals come down to the lake for their fill of water.
