Commonly monsoon in India means heavy shower, water blocked road, a devastated transportation system, umbrellas everywhere, muddy surroundings. But, there are also some places in India where you can enjoy the freshness of nature only in monsoon. Here are three such places.
The royal city dotted with historic structures is an example of majestic grandeur. Udaipur is also known as the ‘Venice of the East’ and this phrase comes alive in the months of July-August; however, it is still not so popular monsoon destination among the travellers. The city is well-furnished with an extensive variety of hotels that suit every pocket, restaurants that offer delicious Rajasthani dishes and markets that are popular for local handicrafts. After the showers of rain, the bird’s-eye views from the Monsoon Palace are amazing. Famous spots to visit are Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake, City Palace, Jag Mandir and Udaipur Ghat.
The pristine beaches and attractive landscapes of Goa are even more attractive in the rainy season. Dudhsagar Falls is a place where you can get a special thrill only in the rainy weather. The name means ocean of milk and this is due to the fact that from a distance, the waterfall looks exactly like the flow of milk down the mountains.
‘God’s own city’ is especially attractive in rains. The rolling hills of Munnar and South India’s major tea-growing regions are worthy of a special mention during rainy season. The low Mountain View is marvelous particularly in the monsoons when mist covers the mountain peaks. The only thing is you must carry an umbrella or raincoat along. This is also the time when you can enjoy great discounts on hotel tariffs and enjoy Munnar without crowds of tourists.
