When’s the best time to visit Alleppey?
The best time to experience what it is like to travel in any one of the Houseboats in Alleppey would be during the winter season, starting from mid-September to mid-March.

The monsoon period from July to September is when the natural habitat of Alleppey comes alive. You can get economically-priced houseboat packages during this time period but you must be aware of unpredictable heavy downpours.
