Best 3 Indian Travel Destinations in Monsoon: Kumarakom, Ooty and Udaipur

With the rupee hits all time low, tourism sector also feels the heat, as more and more Indian tourists are now opting for desi vacation over an international tour. Well, everything has its good side, so the new surge in domestic tourism compels travel agencies to develop variety of monsoon packages on offer. In a recent study, three places come out to be the winner in monsoon tourism: Kumarakom, Ooty and Udaipur.
Enjoy Boat Race in Kumarkom

Best things to do: Ayurveda treatment, boat races and temple visits

Ayurveda treatments in resorts and boat houses in Kerala Backwater is a super luxury affair. It is of course a costly deal but worth it every paisa. The backwater tourism in Kerala is quite popular, as number of hotels and luxury resorts are mushrooming in the state exclusively cater to detox/Ayurvedic packages including special meals, massage and even Yoga.

Vembanad Lake in Kumarkom is another attraction that you don’t want to miss. Take boat cruises to the nearby villages surrounded by coconut trees and lush green surroundings amidst sensually stimulating monsoon aura.

Best Deal: If you are in Kerala in Monsoon you can’t just afford to miss the famous boat race. The Nehru Trophy Boat Race is Kerala’s biggest and most attended extravagant competition. This three-day non-stop exciting event is held on Punnnamada Lake near Alappuzha with strong armed rowers in their wooden canoes (snake boats) fighting over to finish the line.

On September 16, Kerala celebrates Onam with huge elephant processions in full festive mood.

Natural Escape to Ooty

Ooty in Tamil Nadu is a famous Southern summer escape. But that doesn’t mean it is only meant for summers, monsoon is equally invigorating. The verdant hills, Nilgiri Mountain Railway chugging along the mountains, visit the Rose Garden or just relax in the nature’s purified air.

What to do: Luscious home-made chocolates and refreshing tea with fresh honey are the best bet. The romantic weather and mesmerizing nature’s splendor makes Ooty one of the best hill stations in India.
Best Deal: Lush green tea gardens in monsoon, Doddabetta Peak and Pykara Lake are the must visit places in Ooty. Don’t miss to buy Mysore silk and famous Kanjeevaram sarees.

Cultural Bonanza in Udaipur

A rare combination of erstwhile Mewar kingdom relics and new world of industrialization makes Udaipur city is a tourist delight. Most people draw towards marble and limestone palaces and temples but it’s the cultural charm, which makes this Rajasthan city unique amongst all.

Don’t Miss: The City Palace Complex and Lake Pichola is the common yet ever attractive draw of Udaipur. Don’t miss the Vintage Collection of Classic Car Museum.

Venture Out: Excursion to Kumbhalgarh Fort in the Aravali Hills will be a thrilling experience. The monsoon is beautiful in this age old Maharaja city where dark clouds hover over majestic havelis and palaces infuse a retro romantic feeling. Shilpgram Museum is the place where you will have a glimpse of local culture in the form of crafts, tradition and Udaipur’s heritage arts.

Khad khargosh is a special preparation of wild hare meat that is cooked under earth with lots of red chilies.

    Tamil Nadu is my favourite vacation state which is situated in India. I have visited it before my hawaii inter-island tours with my friends. It is naturally rich area packed with the natural beauty. Doddabetta Peak and Pykara Lake are the most visited attraction and famous among the tourists. Best way to entertain with the lake is through the boat that amuse the visitors. This 20 minute boat tour and also provides an opportunity to enjoy the boat houses with the restaurants.

    Hey! I have visited Ooty and Udaipur in the monsoon. Heaven knows that this hill station in south India bears a mild and pleasant climate throughout the year. Ooty is more beautiful especially during the rainy season. Greenery omnipresent makes the entire town even more beautiful. Now I am planning to re-visit once again because I did not find any place more interesting than it. Moreover, I have applied for visa india. I will get my visa within three days and will be there within five days.

    Thanks for this lovely informative article on traveling in the monsoon time. Surely we can't ignore the charm of this beautiful season. People say winter is the best time. But I go with the monsoon. Being a nature lover, I want to feel that spark of nature. I think a tourist should tour in every weather conditions to make the most out of it. Ooty is definitely one of the most desired tourist destinations in South India. It has the impressive amount of greenery, rare flora and fauna and a lot more.
