Rajasthan is one of the states in India which has something for everyone in each season and the monsoons are no exception. The rainwashed beauty of the desert state is an experience that will give you reasons to come back again and again. Not only does the entire state wear a refreshed look, but the fantastic weather makes for some fabulous sightseeing. The scenery wears a clean look and even the Forts, Palaces, and Havelis seem to be brighter waiting to welcome anyone who visits.
With a variety of places to visit during the rainy season, there is something for everyone and if you are a nature lover then Keoladeo National Park, also known as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, is where you should definitely go. What makes this place particularly special is the arrival of the migratory birds.
Another place to visit is Narlai, a beautiful village tucked away between Jodhpur and Udaipur in Pali district, where you can experience the rural side of Rajasthan in the most scenic setting. With jeep safaris and treks on offer, Narlai is best visited during the monsoons.
Mandawa in Jhunjhunu is also a popular destination for the hundreds of Havelis in this small town. Staying in one of the many gorgeous Havelis is an experience that one should definitely have. The art and architecture of these Havelis which have now been turned into hotels not only make for great photographs but also give a good lesson in history.
If looking for a luxurious weekend trip, an ideal place would be Neemrana in Alwar. The lush green and the view of the hills get further enhanced when the dark monsoon clouds play hide and seek.
However, nothing beats a visit to Kumbhalgarh in Rajsamand, also known as the Great Wall of India. The view from the fort itself is breathtaking and during the monsoons, it becomes even more beautiful. A perfect setting to leave the worries behind and take in the fresh air.
Let the rainkissed Rajasthan soak you in its beauty!
