please do not misguide about places in South for summer trips. they are humid and will drain out energy. Pics posted about places like Matheran, Munnar, Kodaikanal, Connoor etc they belong to monsoons and post monsoon. They don't look like that in summers. check below web link for more info about few places in India!! :D www.youtube.com/channel/UCS3xVEqa3M0ycf2uxFMtj6Q Cheers!
