Tagged as the "Venice of the East" or "God's own country", Kerala, a place with lush landscapes, delicious cuisine, serene surroundings and rich spirituality. I visited Kerala during the monsoons. Though people avoid going to different places during monsoon, I instead chose to try it. There are some advantages though. Onam, the biggest festival of Kerala is celebrated during the monsoons added with the discount availed in train journey and the entire stay in Kerala. Backwater boat ride is really fun during the monsoons. It is also the prime time for ayurveda and it embraces you even more due to it's lush surrounding, spices and fruits. If you are not a monsoon person, then the idea of visiting Kerala during monsoon is bad. But it was fun for a person like me.
