India is a land of all seasons. From having magical winters, bright summers and heavy monsoon, India is also blessed with a month of fantastic spring season. All over India you can see the flowers in bloom and lush green environment. But there are some locations which are just mesmerizingly beautiful! Here is a list of beautiful places to visit in spring.
India’s top destinations all year round- Bir and Mcleodganj- are best experienced during the spring season. All over you will find colourful flowers, green scenery and warm sunlight! You can come here over the weekends, go paragliding, cafe hopping and visit the beautiful monasteries. Spring season is also the perfect time to visit the Bhagsu Nag waterfall in Mcleodganj and for camping in Triund.
Backpack across the state of Meghalaya and enjoy the food, culture and festivals! Shillong is in a full hustle bustle during the spring season. As the schools reopen after the winter ends, as the gardens become colourful- there is a sense of joy all over the city. You can also go ahead of Shillong and visit places like Krang Suri and Nohkalaikai waterfalls, Cherrapunji and root bridges!
Many people always wonder the best time to visit Dayara Bugyal. We recommend trekking across the India’s most beautiful meadow during the spring season. Witness the rural mountain life at its best! With the cattles grazing over the meadows and locals working around, Dayara Bugyal is the perfect spring destination for all the adventure seekers. Enjoy the beauty of the meadow- with the flowers in full blossom and the green landscape at its peak. The temperature and the weather are also perfect! Bonus points for it is a weekend trek and can be done within 3 days from Delhi.
Situated in the Western Ghats, a hill station in the state of Kerala- Munnar used to be the vacation destination during the colonial times and it still is! For all the right reasons. From harbouring various wildlife sanctuaries and national parks to the highest peak of western ghats (Anamudi Peak), Munnar is also blessed with alluring tea plantation. You can also visit the Lakkam Waterfall. It is also known as “Kashmir of the South” and hence visiting it during the spring season is the perfect time. You can stay in luxury resorts or budget hotels to fully enjoy the weather.
Most people assume that the best time to visit Gulmarg is during the winters. And it is! But there’s also another side to the coin. Gulmarg during the springs is a paradise. With snow capped peaks around, the green scene at the valley is just astonishing. We highly recommend taking the gondola ride to enjoy the views from a greater height. You can also go from Gulmarg to Pahalgam and witness the daily life of Shepards of Kashmir.
Relax in the green lush forests and treks during the Spring season! Kasol, Kheerganga trek, Tosh valley, Rasol, Grahan are just a few gems of this region. During the spring, the valley is full of life, green landscapes. You can also go sit/camp by the Parvati river to enjoy the warm golden weather. Or you can also go cafe hopping!
Experience the magic of Himachal’s best kept secret- Tirthan valley. Go hiking in the Great Himalayan National park and explore the diverse flora and fauna of this region. The trails are full of flowers and green trees that are known to turn brown during the autumn season! Besides hiking, we recommend camping and rafting during the spring to enjoy the weather. And brownie point to this location since it’s easily accessible from Delhi!
Yumthang is not only the ultimate spring destination but also one of the most under explored regions. A valley in North Sikkim, the valley has rare flora species and is definitely a must visit for those who love places like Valley of Flowers. The temperature is also perfect to visit during the spring unlike the winters when everything gets closed off! We highly recommend visiting this place to explore India’s best kept secret in the laps of Himalaya.
