If you are looking at taking a break or using your weekend holiday to plan a monsoon trip, here are a few destinations to consider…

If you do not wish to travel too far, Lonavala, a quaint hill town near Pune, Maharashtra, is one such destination that offers a fascinating experience in the lap of Mother Nature — surrounded by the imposing mountains, breath-taking waterfalls. The pleasant weather makes it one of the perfect spots for trekking and sightseeing and enjoying the locally make chikki. Plus, Lonavala offers a variety of accommodation options for every budget.

Another place is Mahabaleshwar, located southwest of Pune and enveloped in the Sahyadri range of mountains. It is also known for its waterfalls, lush greenery, descending clouds, pleasant climate, and of course, delicious strawberries with fresh cream. Hop on to a horse and traverse through the fog, visit the several scenic spots among the hills, shop in the market for jelly, jams, and more, enjoy a boat ride in the lake, and if you are history buff, visit the nearby Pratapgad Fort.

Opt for the one you would love to travel. The price tag for your monsoon holiday could range from Rs 10,000 to Rs 1 lakh, depending on the destination you choose to travel and the way you wish to spend the holiday.

While on a monsoon holiday keep in mind a few necessities like good rain gear-raincoat, umbrella, boots, etc. Also, carry with you medicines to deal with common monsoon-related ailments such as cough, fever, cold, etc, especially if travelling with children. If the activities you have planned, such as a trek or boating, get washed out due to heavy rains, just sit back and enjoy a rejuvenating massage in your resort’s spa or go on a drive to enjoy the verdant greenery.
