Travel this monsoon and chase the rains
Posted by srijita das on July 25, 2017
“Oh, the joys of monsoon travel,
Takes away my worldly shackles.
I calmly watch the monsoon arrival,
It’s time for some self-revival.
Traveling to a new land,
Oh, my trip is all planned.
Here I come to see the golden sand
In my wonderland.”
If you are the one who doesn’t care to get a wee bit wetter in the rains than monsoons are the best time for you to go tripping on the roads that will lead to the jungles, hills, oceans, and plains. A monsoon trip is surely the best vacation in India for a lifetime experience in the lap of nature. From overflowing lakes to great waterfall scenes, everything turns heavenly in India.
Chase that adventure bug in you and step out with your umbrellas to the puddles of muddy water so as to go lost in the marvels of nature. Lined up for you are some very offbeat destinations to savor during the mid-monsoon time and take advantage of the off-season perks too!
Get charmed by the talisman of the northeast
As the rain drops make a rhythmic sound while plopping on the leaves and rocks, the feeling of freshness seeps into the body, mind, and soul. The rain-washed forests and the manicured tea-estates gives one a pleasant feeling. The rolling terrains of Darjeeling, Kalimpong, and Gangtok is verdant in any time of the year. Nevertheless, during the pouring rains, the place looks no second to heaven.
If a northeast trip is on your mind, then pack your bags to Darjeeling, Kalimpong, and Gangtok during monsoons and get lost in its endless splendor.
Cool it off at Coorg in refreshing monsoons
If you wish to enjoy the cool droplets of the rains while you dance in a trance, you definitely need to backpack and go Coorg. Enjoy the rains in the most natural setting possible amidst the lush green surroundings of the spectacular Abbey fall. Landscaped in the enchanting Western Ghats of southwestern Karnataka, this district holds a great waterfall until November. Coorg adds on to the spectacle of monsoon and makes one literally dance in delight. If you’re a nature buff, there are lots for you to do there such as trekking and enjoying the enormous wildlife of this region.
Call from the kingdom of mountains
Breathing in deep within the towering mountains of the Himalayas, this little and sluggish town of Leh is dotted with mud-brick shelters, huts, and Tibetan monasteries. It is easy to fall in love with this place at any time of the year. Its pristine beauty is such that once explored by a traveler, it draws him back again. Unlike many other tourist hotspots, the monsoon is the best time to travel to Ladakh. It’s a rain shadow area which implies that it doesn’t get much rainfall. However, the little rain that is meant to occur happens in small fits of heavy downpour, but otherwise, the skies are shiny, pristine blue, and the air is brittle and brisk against your cheeks.
Chancing on a different facet of Uttarakhand
Uttarakhand has a soothing ambiance that turns extra charming in the rains. If one walks about the town during this time of the year, and so there are all possibilities to either bump into a cloud or be surrounded by the mist. Its magical atmosphere turns the entire landscape in green, and one can fill his soul with the delights of its endless picturesque appeal. The gloomy-gray clouds floating around behind and above the fresh green land soaked in dew, provide a striking contrast of vibrant colors and thus attracting photographers from around the globe to capture its ageless beauty.
When nature is immersed in rains of heaven
Although the tiny town of Munnar stays covered with the green carpet of nature all through the year, the monsoon rains transform this hill station into a piece of land from paradise. The dark clouds during monsoons that drizzle and pour in every next moment turn the green, greener and infuse a sense of romance in the gentle wind. Nothing seems a better option than admiring the beauty of Munnar during the monsoon in the midst of nature.
The pitter patter melody of the refreshing rain along with a cool breeze and a mug of hot coffee with an entire landscape of picturesque vista is what makes Munnar this gorgeous and romantic.
