The monsoon is already here and it is probably one of the best seasons in India. People like to plan their trips during this time, especially to enjoy the rain. However, it gets quite risky to travel to a few popular monsoon destinations due to the weather conditions. These locations pose a major threat to tourists due to landslides, flooding and unexpected torrential rains.
So if you are also planning a monsoon trip, keep in mind that you should avoid these tourist spots during the rainy season.
1. Mumbai: Visiting Mumbai during monsoon can turn into a bad experience. During this time, flooding is a common problem in Mumbai. You can also be stuck in traffic for hours, which makes the journey irritating. Mumbai often gets torrential rains in the monsoon season and swampy roads are a common problem in the city. So if you are planning to visit Mumbai then November to February is the best time to travel.
2. Chennai: Monsoon rains are bringing much-needed relief from the heat to many South Indian cities. So many people think about traveling to Chennai to enjoy the rain. However, during the rainy season, Chennai is often affected by flooding. As a result, you may have to remain locked in the hotel room. Try to avoid traveling to Chennai between July and September.
3. Sikkim: Many people like to go to the mountains to enjoy the monsoon rains. Sikkim is one of the most favorite destinations for mountain lovers. However, visiting Sikkim in the rainy season is not without its risks. Walking through the streets of Sikkim during the rain can be a very bad experience for you.
4. Uttarakhand: Some regions of Uttarakhand get too scary during the rain. As this place is close to Delhi, it remains crowded with tourists all year round. However, try not to visit this tourist spot during monsoons as landslides are quite common across the state. Floods due to heavy rain and cloudbursts also pose a major risk to travelers.
