Trav­ellers pre­fer trav­el­ling in a par­tic­u­lar sea­son of their choice. As the mon­soon winds gears up to bring an amaz­ing sea­son of the year, we list top five des­ti­na­tions that one can visit this sea­son. Here are some of the pic­turesque des­ti­na­tions:

1) Ladakh: The cold desert of In­dia is a must visit place in sum­mers and mon­soons as the roads, un­like win­ters, are clear for travel. The place mes­mer­izes you by its nu­mer­ous moun­tain passes, sparkling lakes with crys­tal clear wa­ter sur­rounded by snow-capped moun­tains.

2) Dar­jeel­ing: The lure of the misty Dar­jeel­ing moun­tains look mag­nif­i­cent dur­ing rains. The Dar­jeel­ing roads sur­rounded by tea gar­dens pro­vides once-in-a- life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. If you are go­ing on a fam­ily trip, noth­ing can be bet­ter than book­ing a fam­ily home stay at a tea es­tate. The emer­ald green ex­panses and walk­ing through the clouds ex­pe­ri­ence, have the power to re­ju­ve­nate your soul.

3) Gang­tok: The cap­i­tal of Sikkim, brother of seven sis­ters’ state of In­dia is si­t­u­ated in the val­ley of the Hi­malayas. Gang­tok is fa­mous for tourist des­ti­na­tions such as Enchey Monastery, Tsomgo Lake, Ridge and Nathula Pass. Due to Shiva­lik Hills, Gang­tok en­joys a gen­tle, mild cli­mate and re­ceives heavy rain­falls with strong winds dur­ing the months of June to Au­gust and hence, is a pre­ferred place for ad­ven­ture lovers. The best way to reach Gang­tok is us­ing air­ways.

4) Mun­nar: It is a part of Ker­ala’s par­adise of God’s own coun­try. With sil­very mist, in­cred­i­bly vast tea gar­dens, green hills and pleas­ant cli­mate, this hill sta­tion is truly one of the favourite tourist spots in In­dia, dur­ing mon­soons. You can also spot wildlife at Ana­mudi, the high­est peak in the Western Ghats and en­joy some na­ture walks at beau­ti­ful lakes and wa­ter­falls in De­viku­lam and At­tukal.

5) Goa: One of the top rated places in In­dia for mon­soons, Goa hosts trav­ellers from all around the world. You can go trekking or hik­ing at Dudhsagar wa­ter­falls, visit Aguada fort for a scin­til­lat­ing view, lo­cal-themed cruises amid the sea, bor­dered by the most hap­pen­ing beaches of In­dia. You can feel rich as a gam­bler at the Casino and get the thrilling ex­pe­ri­ence of wa­ter sports at Baga beach. The land of beaches is surely worth your visit dur­ing this mon­soon where you can en­joy sand, driz­zle and pic­turesque scener­ies along with de­li­cious food of Goa and coastal del­i­ca­cies.
