There are still four months left in 2018 and you can still plan a few holidays. This is probably your last chance to make the most of weekends and plan for sabbaticals in 2018.
September arrives and monsoon retreats. September announces the arrival of Autumn – the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. For those who would love to but couldn’t manage to take a monsoon trip, this is your last chance to make the most of the last showering period of the year. Keeping this in mind, here we have listed down a few unusual places where you can plan a trip even at the 11th hour. In most tourist places, September is a part of the offseason, hence you can book hotels and flight at a substantially discounted price.
- Coonoor, Tamil Nadu
Coonoor is a beautiful town in Tamil Nadu and is comparatively less explored than its surrounding areas. It is basically a hill station which attracts tourists for a numerous number of reasons. From its tea estate to the scenic beauty of the Nilgiri hills, the sprawling 100 years old gardens with exotic plants; to its famous cascading Catherin falls. Wants a bird’s eye view of the landscape? Don’t miss out on visiting Lamb’s Rock. Staying here for two days is enough to rejuvenate your nature-loving soul.
- Khandala, Maharastra
Khandala is likely to offer you the most memorable monsoon trip in September. This hill station is home to vintage places including Rajmachi Point with a view of the Rajmachi Fort and Sunset point. Khandala is a popular choice to enjoy September rains as it receives a good amount of rain during the month. The true beauty of the mountain can also be devoured during this season. Hence, make sure to plan a weekend trip to Khandala and delve deep into the mesmerizing memories of its dramatic valley. In addition to these, the three-tiered waterfalls adjacent to the Tamhini Ghat mountain pass, the Buddhist shrines, and the Bhaja and Karla caves featuring intricate carvings will further add variety to your journey.
