I cannot tell how you how badly I need an off not from my 9-5 life but to go on a date with the newly found love of my life- Nature! September is the time when the summers have stopped being angry and winters have not yet knocked at the door. After monsoons, it is the best time to travel.

Due to some other obligations, I missed out on my planned trips in the month of July and August. But here is the list of the places that I am planning for the month of September. So thought of sharing with you guys as well. It would be really a pleasure if somebody likes my picked-up places to go and plans their itinerary.
Here we go-

5. Munnar, Kerala

This is the time, the hills of Munnar turn into a blue carpet in the God's own country. The mass blooming of Neelakurinji flowers, a phenomenon which occurs once in 12 years, is taking place in the Eravikulam National Park in Kerala's Munnar. The phenomenon will last till October.



These perennials flower once in 12 years, The term 'plietesials' is used to refer to such plants. The time taken to mature varies in different species of Kurinjis. So different species of Kurinjis have different intervals of flowering. Neelakurinji matures in 12 years time and flowers gregariously every 12 years. The purple hills look magnificent.

Days Required-
2 days are sufficient for Munnar only but if you want to explore beaches and backwaters too, 6-7 days are sufficient.

4. Chandratal, Himachal Pradesh


The Lake of the moon is situated in Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. You can visit this place from May to October. But September is the best time to visit. Sitting in between the snow-capped mighty mountains and under the lights of millions of stars and meteors in the night along the lakeside. Kind of an orgasm for the stargazers.

3. Mahabaleshwar, Maharashtra

Lingmala Waterfall

It is a hill station located in the Sahyadri mountain range, 260 Kms from Mumbai. This is the time of heavy rainfall across Maharashtra. So for Delhiites it will be no less than a heaven!
Though a popular honeymoon spot, reasons why mid September turns out to be the best-


  • There won’t be too much crowd.
  • You will be flowing along with the clouds.

When in Mahabaleshwar, don't miss Panchgani, 3 monkey point, Wilson point and Needle hole point. The Lingamala falls are a nature lover’s delight. You have to walk through the forest and follow a trudged trail to reach it. The falls are located amidst natural beauty, at a great spot for photography and picnic with friends and family. Post monsoon the waterfall is much higher, and more beautiful.


Lodwick Point

Earlier known as Sydney point, Lodwick Point has great panoramic views and amazing spots for gazing into the stunning valley. Another one is Table land, the second highest mountain plateau in Asia where horse riding and paragliding make good activities to indulge in.

2. Pachmarhi, Madhya Pradesh


Widely known as the 'Queen of Satpura' , situated at a height of 1067 m in a valley of the Satpura Range in Hoshangabad district. Dhoopgarh, the highest point (1,352 m) in Madhya Pradesh.
You can go to Jata Shankar and Pandava caves, Rajat Prapat waterfall and the famous suicide point known as Handi Khoh- The area is extremely tranquil and is surrounded by a dense timber jungle. Even the water flowing far below can be heard with an unremitting murmuring sound. 

The 30th highest waterfall in India, Rajat Prapat is among the most popular places to visit in Pachmarhi in monsoon. The waterfall is also known as Silver Fall due to its silvery colors it reflects after sunset.
Apsara Vihar or fairy pool, near pandava caves is one of the best places to visit in monsoons.


1. Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh


It has managed to secure the first spot because of the Ziro music festival, 2018. Ziro is an old picturesque town in Arunachal Pradesh and home to Apa Tani tribe.A treat for both the music lovers and the nature lovers. 
Started by musicians Bobby Hano and Anup Kutty in 2012, this 4 day festival is said to be one of the greatest outdoor music festivals in India. There are bonfires every night to eat drink and sing along. If you often wish for peace and solace, this is it! This valley is as far away as you can possibly get from the maddening city life, making it the perfect place to connect with yourself.
You can explore the unexplored Arunachal, their local cuisines consisting of momos, thukpa, zan and khura. Also an extra dose of knowledge, rats is a delicacy in Ziro. Fried frogs and roasted rats might be only for the daring amongst foodies. Keep glass mugs and premium beers aside because, at Ziro, it is all about the local brews served in bamboo glasses.

Road Trip of a lifetime


The nearest airport to Ziro is Tezpur but no direct flights are from major cities. Best option is Guwahati. Hire a taxi and have the best road trip of your lifetime with your friends in the lush green nature along with the river Brahmaputra.
If you have more days, you can visit other north-eastern states- Meghalaya, Sikkim, Tripura and Nagaland.

Love, Travel & Repeat!
