7 monsoon getaway ideas for the wanderlusting soul in you!

By  | 

Mumbai summers are far from the idea of bright shiny days that call for a stroll in the park. It’s about finding that one shady corner on the edge of the street where you could hide yourself away from the scorching sun. It’s about gulping liters on liters of water as you perspire most of it almost instantly. And when you’re in the middle of May, it’s just about shamelessly day dreaming the first downpour. Well, we’re there. Hopefully, a few weeks away from the first drops of rain & boy, we’re all so kicked!

But with Monsoons come responsibilities. One of which is a mandatory getaway.

Since we’re slowly trudging towards June, here’s a quick list on what you should do to make the most of the rainy days!

Rainy treks

A kick for any adventure junkie & a solace for any nature-lover, rainy treks truly make you one with nature. A typical rainy trek will involve treading through layers of lush green plants with wind and raindrops rushing through your face. It’s undoubtedly the best way to bring in the season.
