Best Season to Enjoy Alleppey Houseboat Experience

Posted by atthomas on October 2nd, 2019

Alleppey is among the top rated tourist places in Kerala. This beautiful destination attracts a number of tourists from India as well as abroad. Travelling to Alleppey is fun and there are a lot of attractions including beaches, bird sanctuaries, tiny islands, and backwaters to explore.

Among the top experiences, the highest rated one is the Alleppey houseboat trip that is a favourite among all the travellers. These houseboats are a great way to enjoy backwaters of Kerala.

But there is a certain time during which this houseboat experience becomes better. Since it varies from season to season so it is a better idea to know about it before planning a trip –


Summers are usually hot and humid in Kerala. During this time, the humidity is also high because it is closer to sea. While houseboats are functional during this time, the visitors are only recommended to book the air conditioned ones. More tourists head to Munnar and Wayanad during summers are weather is pleasant than Alleppey.


Houseboats stop operating during the monsoons as heavy rainfall floods the backwaters and the nearby areas. While travellers come here in August and September to participate in Boat Race as well as Onam, they stay in resorts and hotels. If you are booking a houseboat then make sure that they will offer refunds in case they cancel the plan.


Winter season starts from October and is the best time to enjoy an Alleppey houseboat experience. This weather is pleasant and the water level is moderate. This is also a great time to visit Kumarakom which is another famous tourist places in Kerala. One can find packages of Alleppey and Kumarakom to enjoy an amazing holiday.

Alleppey is a lovely destination and with a well planned travel package, you’ll get to explore the best of this town.
