With the heat blaze almost at an end this year, its time to gear up and welcome the monsoon. Rains don’t always mean ruined plans and staying indoors. Here is a list of best places to visit in July in India. What’s more, this being the off-season, you can enjoy a cheap vacation as well!


A beautiful summer retreat, the beautiful Coorg is full of dense forests and sprawling coffee and spice plantations. A perfect spot for adventurous treks and spotting wildlife. However if adventure is not your thing, you can opt for leisurely strolls amidst the spice plantations, see the cocoa fruit being processed to give rise to the rich dark chocolate concoction, or simply enjoy the Coorgi hospitality at the various homestay options available here. You can take a look at Coorg packages for more fun filled trips in and around Coorg.

In the last few years, Ladakh has become one of the top most travelled destinations in India. Apart from the unparalleled picturesque beauty of the rugged landscape and the ancient monastic ruins, there’s another reason why you should come to the enchanted Leh. Leh is about 618 kms away from Delhi and a ride from Delhi to Leh by car takes about 20 hours 30 minutes, making it one of the favorite road trips in North India.

Unlike Leh, Agartala is a long way from being a hot tourist destination, which is all the more reason to go and explore this north-eastern beauty as one of the best places to visit in July. The capital of the erstwhile princely state of state of Tripura, has a rich history and cultural heritage. Full of ancient temples, palaces and archaeological sites, and many other notable places to visit in Agartala, the quaint city is a treasure trove for any history enthusiast.

The capital of the state of Orissa has long been a favoured tourist destination and a major pilgrim spot in the ‘Char Dham Yatra’. With a vast spread of golden beaches, numerous temples with spectacular temple architecture, and an amazing local cuisine, Puri is a great vacation spot. However, June-July is the time when the capital is all geared up for the main annual festival -Rath Yatra.

A not very well known hill station in Gujarat, Pavagadh is also known as the gateway to the beautiful Panchgani. A quiet scenic place surrounded with craggy peaks, lakes, waterfalls and lush greenery, Pavagadh brightens up considerably during the monsoons. Apart from the natural beauty, Pavagadh also has a number of palatial ruins worth exploring.

If you feel the mountains calling out to you, you should give the Kalpa area a try. This small town above the Satluj river in Kinnaur district is a true beauty on regular days, but come monsoons, this place takes on an ethereal quality. With the rain clouds close enough to touch, and the green valleys glistening a vivid emerald creating a sharp contrast with the looming snow peaked Himalayas in the background.

We simply couldn’t have missed out on this one. The swaying coconut fronds, smell of wet earth and sandy beaches soaking up the rain showers, monsoon in the Pondicherry region is a sheer delight. This erstwhile French settlement is a beautiful little seaside Union Territory with a merry blend of Eastern and Western influences. Besides, a tourist can also use the opportunity to relish the best of authentic cuisines at the local restaurants in Pondicherry. Before you make the plans, it might be worthwhile to note that the airport at Pondicherry operates small aircrafts only, mainly from Hyderabad and Bangalore. If you plan to travel to Pondicherry by air, you can take the direct flights originating from these two cities. If you are coming from Delhi, Mumbai, or Kolkata the best way to travel is to book a flight to Chennai and then hire a taxi. For example, you can book New Delhi to Chennai flights which take around 3 hours and then take a taxi from Chennai to Pondicherry that takes another 3 hours, approximately.
