Monsoons have officially said their last goodbyes to the Indian subcontinent for this year now, now that we are in September. And the official festive season is just about to begin, which means there are a lot of long weekends coming up for you to put on your travel shoes and go out and about! Here’s our list of the top 5 places you must visit during September to November in India.
- GOAAAAA! How can any holiday list be complete without Goa on it, but honestly, this is the best time to visit Goa if you have been delaying that Goan holiday with your buddies for long! The wind in Goa during this time is pleasant, and the overall vibe is just amazing! You can indulge in a lot of activities such as going dolphin sightseeing, sunset parties, etc. Parasailing in Goa, along with other water sports such as banana boat, jet skiing, etc. are quite popular too. You can obviously, just chill at the beach too!
- Jaisalmer: With the wind a little cooler during September- November in India (but not chilly yet), this is one of the best times to go to Jaisalmer! You can opt for their desert safaris, or go down the history lane with palaces and historical monuments. Remember to keep some warm clothes with you for the night, nonetheless.
- Matheran: The best time to visit Matheran is after the spell of rains is over. One of the coldest hill stations, this place is devoid of motor vehicles and hence you can enjoy some unexploited scenic beauty like no other. Not only that, Matheran hotels also give you a very close-to-nature feel! Don’t forget your walking shoes when going to Matheran!
- Sundarbans, West Bengal: If you’d love some tiger watching, this is the place to go to! With pleasant weather and rich flora and fauna after the monsoons, this is the best time to be in this jungle and also spot some Bengal tigers!
- Amritsar: For those with a spiritual inclination, we recommend going to Amritsar during this season. Again, pleasant weather awaits you here during this time of the year. Otherwise, Amritsar can be too hot in summers and too cold in winters. You can comfortably spend a day at the Golden Temple and Wagah Border, and also explore street food during this time!
