  1. Cherrapunji: Starting our list with the second rainiest place on earth, this one occupies a special place in every monsoon lover’s heart. Everything in Cherrapunji, from forests to grasslands and from pastures to the soil, radiates a healthy emerald glow making it resemble the rolling hills of the infamous Scottish highlands. Play a game of hiding and seek with the clouds, go on a walk across this rustic land or just sit by one of its gorgeous waterfalls, there will be a surprise waiting for you in every corner of this quaint little place in mesmerising Meghalaya.
  2. Kodaikanal: Aptly nicknamed ‘Gift of the Forest’, Kodaikanal in makes Tamil Nadu makes for a delightful monsoon holiday destination. This idyllic hill station offers numerous opportunities to go on nature walks and discover waterfalls and other water bodies that will fill you with boundless joy with their beauty and splendour. If you are fortunate, you might even witness ‘Brachem Spectre’, a rare phenomenon where you can actually see yourself in the clouds. Now that sounds magical, doesn’t it? No wonder Kodaikanal is such a loved tourist destination in India.
  3. Shillong: If you really want to get drenched and make the most memorable monsoon trip ever, then Shillong in Meghalaya should be your pick as it receives the heaviest rainfall during the raining season. The roaring waterfalls, misty clouds and lush greenery everywhere make it one of the most famous tourist places in India. Surrounded by picturesque valleys of Khasi and Jayanti hills, it paints an even more beautiful picture during monsoons.
  4. Wayanad: Snuggled in the lap of the Western Ghats, this picturesque little hill town in Kerala is renowned for its rare vivid blue flowers, ‘Neelakurinji’, which bloom only once in twelve years. While there are plenty of outdoor activities for tourists such as trekking, mountain climbing and other adventurous expeditions, the real charm of this hill station comes to the fore during the rainy season. And if you’re looking for something even more special, then you must attend ‘Splash,’ a three-day festival that celebrates the real beauty of monsoon in Wayanad through a bunch of interesting and fun-filled activities.Even though we have covered only four of the best places to visit in India during monsoons, IRCTC Tourism offers tour packages to a large number of tourist places in India.
