One of the destination expert’s favorite ways to enjoy the monsoon isto eat Kebabs at Nizam's in Kolkata, get drenched on Marine Drive in Mumbai and have corn cob at India Gate in Delhi.”

Another saysa simple walk through paddy fields of Kerala is magical to say the least. The hills of Ooty, Kodaikanal and Munnar also offera unique experience in the monsoons with wet misty horizon combined with full lakes and flowing waterfalls.”

Hotel

The Tamara of Coorg

Review:

“Excellent”: A warm and wonderful experience to be here. Well treated, good hospitality is what travelers look for when on the road. Coorg is a very nice place to get refreshed. Tamara is one of the best hotels I had stayed till now. Reviewed byTripAdvisortraveller from Bangalore, India

Lake Palace Udaipur

Review:

“Mind blowing, unique experience!”:If you ever have the chance to stay there, you can call yourself very lucky. The location is incredible. Service, pampering, kindness, attention are state of the art. Everything is spick and span. A BIG thank you to all the staff members! Reviewed by TripAdvisortraveller from Switzerland

B&B

Raju's Guest House, Kullu

Review:

“Unspoilt location”: This is located almost an hours drive from Aut. Very serene location. We stayed at River Side resort in the middle of Tirthanriver, an excellent location. There is also Government accomodation cottages/dorms available a few hundred metres away at throwaway prices. Ideal stop over for treks to Great Himalayan National Park or a 2-3 day stay before heading to the crowded Kulu/Manali.Reviewed by TripAdvisortraveller from Mumbai

Homestay of Gushaini

Review:
“Home away from home , in Himalayan Cottage Naggar”: We were amazed by the warmth hospitality of this place during our stay at Naggar between 19th. to 24th. april,2012. It was indeed an awesome experience that one can not imagine to get in a hotel., there is a beautiful heart that lives within Himalayan Cottage Naggar , Host is very very caring. Mr. Shyam who runs this cottage is a nice gentle man who planned & guided our sight seeing tours extremely well and deseves a special compliment. We also must appreciate the delicious food prepared and served by Host from their excellent services. In short, I must say that this hotel cottage is no doubt - Value for money.
