Kerala at a Glance >>

A long sun drenched coastline, to the extreme south west of the Indian peninsula, lies Kerala, beautiful and benign. Flanked by the Arabian sea on the west and the mountains of the Western Ghats on the east, this land of Parasurama stretch north-south along a coast line of 580 kms with a varying width of 35 to 120 kms. Cascading delicately down the hills to the golden coasts covered by verdant coconut groves, the topography and physical characteristics change distinctly from east to west.

Located between north latitudes 8 degree 18' and 12 degree 48' and east longitudes 74 degree 52' and 72 degree 22', this land of eternal beauty encompasses 1.18 per cent of the country.
The Western Ghats, bordering the eastern boundary of the State, form an almost continuous mountain wall, except near Palakkad where there is a natural mountain pass known as the Palakkad Gap. The average elevation of the Ghats is about 1500 meters above sea level, occasionally soaring to peaks of 2000 to 2500 m. From the Ghats, the land slopes to west on to the plains, into an unbroken coastline.
The nature of the terrain and its physical features, divides an east west cross section of the state into three district regions - hills and valleys , midland plains and coastal region.
Weather
Kerala is blessed with a balmy weather throughout the year. . Unlike the north, the weather never gets extreme in winter and summer. This pleasant weather makes kerala more attractive for the investors. Best time is November-February when the mornings are light misty, in the hills light woolens may be required in the evenings and early mornings. Warm (but not hot) months are March-May and September-October : at such times the flowers are out and though there is humidity, it is not daunting. Mid-May to August is the monsoon period, so you can expect a wet time. In addition, June can also be windy.
