Ah, Madikeri, one of the most beautiful vacation spots in Karnataka! The lively capital of the Kodagu district is a scenic hill station nestled in the Western Ghats. Full of paddy fields, cardamom and coffee plantations, and vast expanses of beautiful orchards, Madikeri is truly a sight to behold. The land of the origin of river Kaveri is green and serene, making it one of the best places for a family holiday. The summer (October to May) season is a great time for short trips and usually sees a lot of tourist activity. But it is the winter season that is the best time to visit Coorg, the crisp air and green landscape transporting you to heaven.
Summers in Madikeri, Coorg
Summers in Madikeri are pleasant with temperatures ranging from 30-37 degrees Celsius. The warm weather serves as the perfect shelter against the scorching summers. Being the optimal season for long exploration trips, this is the best time to visit Virajpet in Coorg and other towns in the Kodagu district, famous for its spices. Be prepared to meet hordes of fellow travelers from all over the country as this is the season that sees the most tourist activity.
Don’t forget some summer packing essentials. Since the weather isn’t too jarring, we’d recommend good old light clothes and summer wear. Hats and sunglasses are a must in the late April-May period. However, be sure to carry proper shoes and some salt or matches wherever you go because the Ghats are crawling with leeches. While there isn’t much danger of many mosquito bites, do take calamine lotion in case you are met by other insects.
Monsoons in Madikeri, Coorg
Monsoons in Madikeri are much cooler with temperatures at around 20 degrees Celsius being recorded. The monsoon season begins in June and ends in September.

However, those who are truly invested in greenery must visit Madikeri in July for a pleasurable experience.
The monsoon months in Kodagu are for the truly daring. Prepare yourself for the onslaught of rains with umbrellas, raincoats, and maybe even rubber boots depending on which month you’re visiting. Also, pack some warm clothing as it gets a little chilly in the evenings. Flip-flops and open-toed shoes are a no-no.
