Top 5 Summer Travel destinations in India

Posted by Ankit Srivastava | Posted on May 13, 2018

Season of summer is finally here. And with it comes the heat waves of sun to make us miserable. But that is why summer becomes the perfect opportunity to get exploring new places to cool ourselves off.


For me, summer has always been a chance to go swimming, roaming around a beach or going yachting in summer is the best thing to do. But there are also many people who wants to enjoy the cool breeze in this heated season.


Well, when you are in India you are going to find the best of both worlds. You can spend your day hiking up the mountains. Or you can have a relaxed diner with the view of seas.


It’s totally up to you. But to tempt you a little, here are the best places in India to have a dreamy summer time…


Ladakh – One of the best places for vacation is Ladakh. If you are a biker than this is going to be heaven on earth for you. The roads of Ladakh look like they were designed for two exploring on two wheels. Ladakh is beautiful, adventurous and the weather is also very pleasant. The Zanskar River is the perfect scene to behold. When you are visiting Ladakh in summer make sure that Zanskar River is one your bucket list. For the adventure seekers without going rafting here the travel experience will not be fulfilled. And if anyone is looking for an unexpected trip, choose the dessert of Nubra Valley. You can enjoy camel riding, an Arabian Night experience and all.


Apart from these places you can also go visit some offbeat places like Magnetic hill, Namgyal Monastery, Suru Valley, Tso Moriri Lake etc.




Nainital – This is a hill station but ideal to do various kind of travel activity in here. Nainital offer places top enjoy trekking, skiing and also a beautiful sunset view from the snow point. But that is not all. For the people who love water adventure, they can go sailing here as well as boating. You can also visit the zoo to see some high altitude endangered animals. This is the perfect place for a family destination. In Nainital you will find a place called Zoomland where the whole family can bond over skating. Tiffin Top is a place where you can see the fascinating Himalaya, where you can reach by horse riding. Tempting, isn’t it?


Other places to enjoy in Nainital are The Mall Road, Naina Devi Temple, Naina Peak, Eco Cave Gardens etc.




Manali – Now, this is the place for a romantic gateway. And probably that’s why it is the most popular destination in India. The valleys and the hills are the main attraction of Manali. Places like Solang Valley and Rohtang Pass are filled with tourist the whole year. One of the most beautiful and untouched places in Manali is Jugni Waterfalls. The breathtaking scenery of this place is not the only reason to visit here, also enjoy trekking by the flowing river. People with a taste of adventure can also come here for Paragliding to enjoy the view of beautiful gills and valleys. Apart from this going for Riverside Camping, Rafting are also the popular activity of this place.


Dharamkot, Kasol, Bhrigu Lake, Malana, Beas River, Hadimba Temple Manali these places are also a great for summer vacation in Manali.




Mussoorie – Another great place for hill lovers. But I personally love this place because of there are so many magnificent falls to hive a little taste of heaven. And maybe that is why Mussoorie becomes so crowded in summertime. After enjoying the view from the cable car you can go shopping on the various gift shops here. But if you just want to relax and do not want to do anything, the falls of Mussoorie will be more than welcoming to you. Kempty falls is the best falls of them and also the major tourist attraction. You are going to feel like you are in a fairytale book by all the surroundings of majestic mountain ranges. This is truly the best place for summer destination.


Bhatta Falls, Mossy Falls, Lake Mist,Mussoorie Lake, Lal Tibba are also some of the best places to explore in Mussoorie.




Goa – I have saved the best for the last. Goa is the ultimate destination for all the beach lovers who comes in India. And there are many right reasons behind it. If you want to enjoy Goa you must come here in summer because apart from having all the beaches, it is super cheap during summers. Even though, Goa is packed up almost the whole year but in summer there are very few tourist here. One of the most recommended beaches of Goa is Calangute because of the amazing sea view, beach front shacks, clubs and shopping places. But if you really want to feel discover Goa, take a trip to the Fort Aguada. This place is rich with Portugal history in India of 17 century. That’s not all, you can also try your luck in Deltin Royale Casino. That’s right, Goa has its own casino to make you rich.


Other than this you will also find many places to party, go on an adventure, to explore wildlife. And those places are Chapora Fort, Pandava Caves and Arvalem Waterfall, Dudhsagar Falls, Tito’s etc.
