Monsoon rains exponentially increase the beauty of nature, with the greens looking greener and the sky having more shades than usual. Planning a trip to Delhi ? Enjoy monsoon season with the following list of travel destinations.
Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh
The monsoons bring plenty of rains to Bilaspur, making it an amazing place to visit, especially for the rain lover. The manmade Gobind Sagar Lake fills up during this time, and that along with the greenery nearby make for a sight that is extremely soothing to the eyes. You can also indulge in some adventure activities while you are here. Other than the lake, there are a number of other places to visit in Bilaspur which include the Shri Naina Devi Ji Temple, Bhakra Dam, Vyas Cave, and the Koldam Dam, among others. Apart from this, the Nangal Wetlands close to the Gobind Sagar Lake are home to about 40,000 migratory birds, making the place a delight for bird lovers.
Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh, India
This place is not only exotic but also breathtaking at the same time. Lansdowne, which was once the summerhouse of the British during their rule in India, is a place where you can find peace while being surrounded by nature. Walking amidst the thick oak and pine forests and admiring old buildings of the British colonial architecture will surely make your trip to this place extremely memorable. You can also go trekking, bird-watching, boating, and paddling, among other things, while you’re on a visit to Lansdowne.

Morni Hills, Haryana
This hill station is only 45 kilometers away from Chandigarh, and the view of the Himalayas that it offers makes this place an amazing monsoon getaway. It’s blessed with enchanting flora, and the lakes in the area are a delight as well. You can choose to relax near the lake or to go boating instead. Whatever you choose to do here, the experience will most definitely be worth it.
Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh
Another breathtaking hill station, Kasauli is known for its serenity and peaceful atmosphere. The view of the mountains and dense forests make for amazing treks through many a trail. One can also indulge in local wines that have been extracted from the fruit orchards.
Foreigners aren’t allowed to visit this place as this is a cantonment area, so the entry criteria are strict. If you’re planning to visit Chakrata during the monsoon, a visit to the Sahiya Caves and rappelling on Tiger Falls are absolute musts. This peaceful and picturesque spot away from the pollution and the hustle and bustle of the city makes for an ideal visit for nature, bird, and wildlife lovers, along with adventure enthusiasts.
Also known as ‘The Bird Paradise,’ Bharatpur is well known for the Keoladeo National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to innumerable species of birds. The best way to make the most of your visit to this place is by taking a cycle ride around the park while being surrounded by the chirps of exotic birds.
