With regard to monsoon season in kerala, the monsoon season do not take the pattern of non stopping rains continuing for weeks. Usually it rains for a few hours with sun showing its face in between.

The state of kerala has got two rainy seasons. The Southwest Monsoon which arrives in the month of June is named in malayalam as Edavappathy. Why the name Edavapathy? It is because the monsoon rains starts on the half of malayalam calender Edavam.

During the second half of October one can witness the arrival of the Northeast Monsoon. North East Monsson reaches kerala during the Malayalam month of Thulam and it has got the name Thulavarsham. The swirling, jostling, billowing dark messenger of life sailing on the wings of northeast winds is a breathtaking sight to behold.

Monsoon time is considered as the best time for Ayurvedic treatment and this concept is widely accepted globally. Special herbal oils and medications are applied on the body of the person who is undergoing Ayurvedic treatment during the Monsoon time to rejuvenate and revitalize the body.
