Which is the best season to travel in Konkan?

Squeezed in the lap of the Western Ghats and the Arabian sea, every season in Konkan has something unique to offer. Summer is for exploring hidden beaches, water sporting, scuba, scenic mangrove boat safaris, fort trails, wild fruit trails, and more. Winter is for everything summer, plus a major mood for camps and a season of Jatras in Konkan. You get to witness the traditional Dashavtar live theatre in a Jatra. Monsoon is very underrated here. You could witness some of the best treks and waterfall trails in the monsoon. The Malvani cuisine also changes to adapt to seasonal variety and even the beaches hit different every season.

How much time before do we need to confirm the tour?

To make all the arrangements, we recommend a confirmation at least a week before travel.

Note that, in the tourism rush months of November, December, January, March, and April- stays may run out, and hence we need to plan the trip months earlier.

We opted for a customised 3D 2N tour package, in an offbeat location- vengurla. The camping experience was unique and beautiful. The local guides were very friendly, flexible and knowledgeable. Highly Recommended!

Without doubt one of the best Tour planners and guiders in the Town !!! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by KTC Guides , We felt welcomed and with such a friendly atmosphere we had a fantastic start! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that they deserves a special thanks. We had three great days there, which obviously also added up to the experience. Pratik Gawde is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking the six of us through the area. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The natural bath on the end was a great way to end the tour. The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to all of us. All respect for Pratik who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide! Many thanks again and I recommend KONKAN TRAVEL CLUB to everyone!

We went on trip to Konkan near vengurla with KTC team. It was amazing experience. We got to explore and experience real Konkan, hidden beaches and camping on the beach. Everything was well organised by KTC team. They are also encouraging and empowering the local community through tourism. 100% recommending to my friends and relatives.
