Best Places to visit in India in June
For the culture vultures:
June is considered off season in Kerala, which is precisely why we love it. Yes its the wettest month but there is something to be said about nature doused in tropical showers. The landscapes of Kerala become even more verdant and romantic in the rains.
If that is not enough most resorts and houseboats offer fantastic discounts, you get most tourist places all to yourself and massages are even more relaxing with the music of raindrops on the roof and the special scent of wet soil.
For Adventure Enthusiasts:
Adventure sports in Ladakh lure travellers from all over the world. The challenging landscape in the lap of Himalayas has a number of adventure sports activities on offer in Ladakh, sure to satisfy every adventure enthusiast. From scaling the peaks of the Himalayas whilst trekking and mountaineering, white water rafting on the swift mountain rivers, bike riding though the high-altitude passes, camping, camel safaris or playing traditional sports such as polo and archery, a trip to Ladakh is sure to make a thrill-seeker happy.
The misty mountains of Cherrapunji are the home of the clouds. One of the wettest places on earth, there are plenty of places to visit in Cherrapunji rich with bountiful rain and rivers that fall off the mountains in thunderous waterfalls. The region is also known for natural caves and thriving flora and fauna, especially the live root bridges. It’s truly a paradise on earth and the home of indigenous tribes and exotic cultures.
Not far are the capital city of Shillong and the insta-famous waters of Dawki river. The Dawki river is considered to have such clean waters that pictures of boats on the river look like the boat is floating mid-air. The nearby villages of Mawlynnong is known as the cleanest village in India and is a must visit to see how this village is making the most of nature and sustainable tourism.
For Nature & Wildlife Enthusiasts:
Malshej Ghat (Maharashtra)
Malshej Ghat is breathtaking in monsoons. Waterfalls line the roads in gushing streams, some even pour down the middle of the road from cliff outcrops. While the place was once notorious for landslides in monsoon today its much safer.
Explore attractions like Harishchandragad Fort, Pimpalgaon Joga Dam, Ajoba Hill Fort, Malshej Falls, etc. Its generally always drizzling here in monsoons and locals decend on the watersfalls on weekends by the dozens. An ideal way to enjoy the place is to stay for a few nights to enjoy the place when the day crowds have left. Our favourite here is Saj by the Lake.
