Ques: What should I pack for Kerala?

Ans: It depends upon the weather in which you are traveling to Kerala. If you are planning to visit during summers then carry light cotton clothes which are suitable for hot and humid climate. Carry sunscreen, sunglasses, water bottle with you every time. Refill your water bottle and avoid overusing of plastic water bottles. 

If you are planning your tour during monsoon then carry an umbrella, the raincoat is the most recommendable thing. 

While during winters you should carry light woolens so that you will be able to enjoy the Kerala trip to the fullest.
