Just as soon as there’s onset of monsoon, the mood to travel kicks right in. Monsoon is one of the best seasons to travel in India, and there are several places in the country (which you might not know of) that become beautiful during the monsoon season.
So, wouldn’t you want to visit these places? Here are some of them.
1. Binsar – Uttarakhand
Binsar is one of the most beautiful spots in the Kumaon Himalayas. Situated 95 km from Nainital, Binsar is one of those picturesque places that are less visited by travellers (as everybody is not aware of it).
Binsar is famous for its forests and the monsoon season only augments its natural beauty. There’s popular attraction in Binsar called the Zero Point from where visitors can enjoy the mesmerising views of the Himalayan Peaks including Shivling, Kedarnath Peak, Nanda Devi, and Trisul.
2. Kurseong – West Bengal
Sure, Darjeeling is popular for its heart-aching natural beauty, but most travellers miss out on the true essence of the hills by missing out on visiting less popular places such as Kurseong.
Kurseong is a sub-divisional town in the district of Darjeeling and has an unparalleled pleasant climate throughout the year. Monsoon is the best time to visit Kurseong as you can enjoy the natural beauty of the town in its pristine form.
Some of the places in Kurseong that are worth visiting include Dowhill Park, Eagle’s Crag, Dowhill, and Rock Garden (aka Zero Point).
3. Shantiniketan – Kolkata
Grown and nurtured by the Tagore family, Shantiniketan is a humble and a divine place. Monsoon is the best time to enjoy the most in the town as the weather cools down and exploring the town’s attraction get intriguing.
There are several gardens in the town which get vivacious after downpours during the monsoon.
4. Lonar – Maharashtra
Lonar is another intriguing offbeat place to visit during the monsoon season. The Lonar lake itself is unlike any other as it was formed by a meteor impact during the Ice Age. Although unearthly in its very nature, the lake is utterly beautiful (especially during the monsoon) and is surrounded by picturesque hills and religious temples.
5. Munnar – Kerala
Munnar is one of the prime tea-growing regions in South India. Emerald green tea plantation carpets the hill station and the low mountain panorama are best splendid during the monsoon as mist envelops the mountain tops.
If you love quiet and secluded vacation, then you should definitely visit Munnar as not too many tourists avoid visiting the town during the rainy season. Also, you can enjoy huge discounts on hotel tariffs.
6. Mawlynnong – Meghalaya
Lastly, Mawlynnong is one such village in Meghalaya that you definitely visit; especially during the monsoon. Mawlynnong is regarded as the cleanest village in all over Asia and the examples set by the local are something to live by.
As already elegant Mawlynnong is, the village gets more beautiful during the rainy season as its natural beauty is augmented.
