There are plenty of best places to visit in India in May! May is a hot month for most parts of the tropical zone that we know as India. Nevertheless, the geography of the country is such that one can clearly find differing wavelengths of ever frigid cocoons in several other pockets to escape into - which make for some of the best places to visit in India in May. With that thought - there are two ways to escape from the scorch of the interiors - to the water ravines, pines and hills of the North, North East and South which soften the beauty of the subcontinent, or the mere majestic Himalayan loft that bolsters its sharp beauty.

Kadmat Island, Lakshadweep

A trail of lagoons lead you on to the inner shores of these islands in Lakshadweep. Sunkissed with a natural glow of the earth, they are just as well adorned with the lustre of the coral reefs that bejewel it from all sides.

Picture this - Virgin islands, coral reefs, acres of unwavering flourishes of the wilds, with the waves of the beach frothing the borderline of the island.

Coorg, Karnataka

White mist rolls over this flourescent green and grey beauty and fits its cosy interiors in, quite like the soft cashmere around your tranquil frame. Delightful are the coffee aromas in Coorg, together with a squish of that fresh orange tinge in the air.

Picture this - Cardamom, pepper plants bustling between acres of tea estates only to find themselves surrounded by bursts of orange groves - nature will never fail to surprise you! The picturesque hill station has a pleasant climate all year round and it is also one of the recommended places to visit in India in April.

Horsley Hills, Andhra Pradesh

Balmy tinges and a cluster of hills atop will help you find your way back to the greens. An encapsulation of the aromatic, the soother here is also the calm chill in the air that truly touches you.

Picture this - Sandalwood trees of light brown, eucalyptus trees of darker green and those of Gulmohar with lighter shade of green thrown in together paint a succession of balanced contrasts. Take a look at several other such places to visit in Andhra Pradesh.

Darjeeling, West Bengal

Chugging through the hills that roll out of a beautiful crown of a crest that is the Kanchenjunga, is a toy train that makes the bouquet of flowers and tea leaves entwined together in the valley below seem like they have chosen their haven.

Picture this - Tea estates spread through unending acres and happy locals on horse and pony backs will make your heart ache for a ride through your eternity for the moment in Darjeeling. Do explore the various savoury options of the local food here.

Shillong, Meghalaya

Azure is the watercolour that flushes the winding ravines of the place. Together with the swift glides that the meanders grace the pine trees with, the hills are a killer of a stunner! The weather simply adds to the inspiration.

Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh

Orchids sit pretty in their flower beds here, for as far as your eyes can traverse in the trajectory of the sight. The monastery set atop a peak of the mountains - a brethren of the Shivaliks, makes for the perfect sanctum for the seeker of faith and wisdom alike.

Picture this - A monastery bathed in white in Arunachal Pradesh, surrounded by sights and smells of food that are simple to look at with a ravishing crackle of flavours once they go into your mouth. Chomp away on the momos!

Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh

Scottish and Victorian architecture capture your senses instantly and warp you into the time of a bygone era which spells - well-wooded interiors and exteriors and well, Himachal Pradesh.

Picture this - Acres and acres of green pastures, punctured by coniferous forests of deodars, pines, spruce and fir. Photography comes to mind, as do walks to no end. Make the booking sooner than later!

Pahalgam, Jammu and Kashmir

Lakes cut through the criss-cross terrains of the jagged Himalayas here in Kashmir. The rugged image of beauty, is replaced just as quickly in a heartbeat with the plains of green pastures strumming with picnickers enjoying the thrills of boating, rafting, or the roar of a gleeful laugh after a quick run.

Picture this - Woollen Kashmiri handicrafts hung up as wafts in pockets of the scenery, ensnaring you to come, look and fall prey to the shopaholic in you.

Nubra Valley, Ladakh

Sand dunes in Ladakh are aplenty and give the backdrop its very cinematic appeal of the forlorn and the sordid. Shoot for the picture, for the video, every second here is a film on roll!

Picture this - Bactrian camels ready to take you through a safari of the myriad and the real in a joyride on this spot on earth, in search for an oasis amid scant vegetation. News is - once in Nubra Valley, you are only yards away from the world’s highest battlefield - Siachen!

May’s heat should quicken your pulse and make you head to these cool to colder getaways. For one, it is definitely going to turn up the heat on your travel plans as one of the best places to visit in India in May!
