How to have a great monsoon experience ?
- Rainy Treks - Trekking is a popular adventurous activity among nature lovers all over the world. Several hill stations on India's west coast are blessed with significant rainfall, bringing lush greenery and allowing for some fantastic monsoon trekking opportunities. Monsoon hikes can range from easy and pleasurable nature trails to strenuous mountain climbing that includes descending some very slick hill slopes. Sweating it out while being cooled down by natural showers, on the other hand, is a genuinely unique experience. Not to mention the wonderful stops for a cup of tea and the genuine hospitality of the local people who welcome tourists and hikers. Maharashtra has some fantastic monsoon trekking opportunities.
