Kerala is definitely a place to be in, for the heat or for the cold; no wonder it is called God's Own Country. A tiny little hill station known by the name Lakkidi happens to be one of the coldest places in South India and has a very cold climate throughout the year.
The reason behind this cold climate of Lakkidi is that it receives the second highest rainfall in the world. This immense degree of rainfall paired with its altitude, 700 m above sea level, blesses this tiny winter haven with mist and fog, which makes it look more like a winter scene in a fairy tale land. The wildlife and the vegetation just add on to its existing exotic beauty, making it the best possible winter destination in South India.
