Hi all,
we're thinking of travelling across Southern India from July-August this year....has anyone travelled in India around the same time?
How did u find the weather? As we're a bit apprehensive due to it being Monsoon season....
Urvi and Poonam!

hey where all in south india r u planning to go??
not sure of the weather down south the monsoon may hav passed and may be in the north...but dont quote me on it!!!
If its still monsoon season..... avoid it!!! coz it will b wet n rainy, u wont be able to do anything.. it will rain non stop, will be humid n sticky n hot.... n ya it will rain.... so i would advice against it ... oh ya did i mention it might rain...haha
i guess u get the idea
safe travel

Don't you enjoy rains?
Kerala,Mangalore and Goa are beautiful under rains.

If you want to avoid rains,try TamilNadu and Andra
where it may not rain intensely unless there is a
cyclone which comes very rarelyOnly the coastal areas are humid
and places like Madurai are dry.

Its is definitly monsoon season in Kerala, southern most tip of India and it is beautiful in the rainy season to be in kerala if are not in the cities..and it is more fun as it would be less crowded and specially in places like Thekkady you would feel special..Ofcourse the best season to travel to kerala is between October to February..but then it would be very much in the thick of tourist season and I personally enjoyed these places in lesser seasons..and thouse who love rains which is the most beautiful expression of really dont be is still fun
