Summer is here – the season of yummy fruits, school holidays and endless scorching sun. Every year, this becomes the peak season for family vacations across the myriad beautiful travel destinations in India.
Here’s a list of your top five choices factoring in safety, ease of access, transport and other amenities and of course scope of enjoyment for you and your family.
If hill-stations are your obvious choice to enjoy during summer months then this trio in Himachal Pradesh should be top of your list. These places have been attracting millions of tourists ever since British-Raj and their popularity continues to swell every year. Serene Mountain views, adventure sports, ease of city life amidst beautiful nature, convenient transport system – almost all of your vacation demands will be met here with proper planning, and within budget too!
This is probably the second most sought after tourist destination combination among the hill-stations in India. Combining the geography of two neighbouring states – West Bengal and Sikkim, these places teem with historic value, sprawling nature and breath-taking scenic beauty of the Himalayas.
Looking to stretch your vacation a bit more? Visit these 3 gems from south India’s Western Ghats – Coorg in Karnataka, Ooty in Tamil Nadu and Munnar in Kerala – all in one long trip or individually. Each of these places offers soothing climate, pristine nature, numerous vacation activities including trekking, rafting, horseback riding, mountaineering, tea and coffee plantations visits and so on to keep you thoroughly engaged.
If you’re looking for a more eclectic mixture of experiences in your vacation then perhaps this option would tempt you more. While Shillong presents a peaceful and colonial charm to its visitors, the eternal misty Cherrapunji adds the uniqueness of being one of the wettest places on earth and Tawang holds its Buddhist heritage dear to its heart.
Finally, we enlist Lakshadweep islands for the ones weary of visiting mountains every summer. With its clean sandy beaches, vast greenery, coral reefs and teeming marine ecology, Lakshadweep offers the unique getaway not-too-far from the confines of mainland with a promise of a different vacation experience altogether.
So pack your bags and head over to any of these locations to enjoy yourself with your family and friends this summer!
