Monsoon getaways around Bangalore on a shoe string budget
Monsoon getaways in India are sadly underrated. Common
notion is that all the vacation-worthy spots are gloomy during the shower
What if we tell you, that some places are best savored during the rains.
Here are some of the most affordable destinations around Bangalore as
recommended by Travelyaari and Cleartrip:
Beaches are only sought after by many when the sun is out and the sands are hot.
What this means is you can take advantage of this culture-rich beach destination
at a fraction of the price. Trek hillocks for splendid beaches, sip at quirky
cafes or just unwind at one of the many hotels which are always a walk away from
the beach! This hippie-hotspot is an 8-hour scenic drive or just an overnight
bus from the city.
As cliched a plan to Coorg may sound, it is just one of those unbeatable
experiences in the monsoon. Victorian style home stays nestled in the middle of
hilly estates is the best place you can be when it's pouring out and all green.
Trek one of the numerous hills or a little sightseeing and coming back to your
cozy cottage to sip your favorite drink for the evening along with the signature
pork is what you call - Quality Time!
It is one of those places, which you don't hear people talk about. Placed among
the castling Shevaroy hills, Yercaud is one the perfect offbeat monsoon
destinations of all time. Visit numerous waterfalls which come alive for the
season, take a stroll around the famous Yercaud Lake which is complete with a
park or just soak in the views offered by the many vantage points. This hilltop
is also a popular hiking destination, if you're feeling adventurous. These
experiences, among many make this place a top rated weekend monsoon getaway from
the city being just a mere 4 hours away from Bangalore.
A city nestled among the Western Ghats, it is one of the most sought after
weekend destinations among many travelers. During the monsoon, experiences are
even better all around this hill city. Striking off the famous Mullayanagiri
trek from your bucket list is only the start of what you can do here.
Comfortable and budget friendly stays among the hills, which often come with a
view puts icing on the cake!
One of the many gems that the 'God's own Country' has on offer this whole
district is a nature lover's paradise. Winding roads sided with either estates
or forests leading to paradise like landscapes like the Banasurasagar reservoir
or the many wildlife reserves rich with flora and fauna is where you want to be
when the rain is doing its magic. Activities like treks or any other adventure
sports are plenty on offer.
Probably one of the most underrated and non commercialized destinations in all
of Kerala, has naturally become a hippy paradise. Pristine shorelines, age old
Hindu temples and the Anjengo fort makes this place well worthy over a monsoon
weekend. Cliff side cafes which play world music, stalls selling the rather
popular baggy clothes and the whole backpacker vibe the town gives out. All this
cannot be missed as there are many affordable travel and beach side
accommodation, which makes you look forward to a rainy weekend by the beach.
