Best Places to visit in India in May
For the culture vultures:
Moatsu festival of Nagaland
Moatsu Festival is held every year in the first week of May and it is celebrated by the Ao tribe of Nagaland. The festival is aimed at providing recreational time to the locals after an excruciating period of clearing fields, chopping down forests, and sowing the seeds for the next harvesting season. What makes the festival unique is the chance to see the tribal folk dance and music which has been preserved here so well.
For Adventure enthusiasts:
Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh
Tawang is nestled in the lap of snow-clad Himalayan Ranges and blessed with breath-taking natural panorama. While Tawang is undoubtedly a soul seekers paradise, it is a heaven for adventure enthusiasts too; the tiny village’s plenty of adventure offerings ranging from trekking and hiking to mountain biking and wildlife spotting, truly make it one of the best adventure tourism destinations in Arunachal Pradesh.
Furthermore the high altitude of Tawang promises cool weather, we can’t think of a better place to escape the summer heat. Besides Tawang Arunachal also offers many other interesting destinations that can be visited in May.
For Nature & Wildlife Enthusiasts:
Visit a Wildlife Sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra:
Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra don’t just share borders they share wildlife rich national parks filled with exciting wildlife, flora and fauna. May in both these states is really hot but it is precisely why its a great time to see wildlife! It’s easier to spot wildlife near the watering holes. Afternoons can be spent at the various luxury lodges both the states offer. Morning and evening safaris are pleasant as forests tend to be cooler. Also come June and these parks shut down for a good 4 months of monsoon. So make the most of summer and head for a wildlife safari!
