I know it sounds counter-intuitive! But the incredulity of the title doesn't make it any less true - travelling during the rainy season is a must-do for every traveller. You can forget the slush, mud and spoiled sightseeing plans, because there are a lot of awesome experiences that can be had when the skies are pouring! And once you've tried it, you might even swear by it.
Still thinking of all the reasons to doubt my word? Let me give you three reasons why travelling in the rainy season can be a truly memorable travel experience.
1. It is so much cheaper!
The very reason people don't travel during the monsoon is why you should. Rains kick off the off-season in most tourist places, so accommodation is cheaper - from rooms in homestays for as low as INR 200 a night to much bigger discounts on hotel rooms, it's a win-win for every budget. Hiring rental vehicles and sightseeing services can also prove to be less expensive, because demand is low and those who are dependent on tourism for their income will take whatever they can get.
