With the arrival of the summer season in India; long sultry days of the mercury rising higher every day and sending scorching heat waves across the country are a common phenomenon. However, even with it being a testing time for many, it is a season most people look forward to for planning a holiday to escape the heat.
While there are many popular summer holiday destinations in India, with its calm and picturesque surroundings, South India remains one of the most popular destinations to plan a vacation this season. Even though, it is perceived by many to be hot and humid due to its tropical climate, it’s many hill stations make it the best destination to visit during summer. Guarded by the Bay of Bengal in the East and Arabian sea in the West, along with the stretch of Western and Eastern Ghats gives it the benefit of having everything from beaches to hill stations, historical towns and so much more.
The best part about these destinations though is that with the well-connected roads in this region, you can easily access all of them via a road trip. So, if you are thinking of taking a trip this summer, I suggest, pack your bags and visit some of these best hill stations in South India.
