With pleasant climate round-the-year, Mandu is a great example of Afghan architecture and has great historic significance. The best time to visit these ruins is the monsoon when nature is at its scintillating best when you can see its enchanting beauty adorned with the green veil.

Vipin Gupta shares his experience on HolidayIQ: Mandu is beautiful when it rains and after that, as the climate is chilled and it is greener. If it's chilled you can move a lot easily as there are all these monuments and heritage buildings.  

Day 2. Experience the magic of rain in Pachmarhi

Discover the magnificence of the Satpura range when you visit Pachmarhi. The valleys are covered with a blanket of green in the monsoons. During monsoon, Pachmarhi looks like a newly-wed bride. The lush greenery in combination with sweet chirps creates an ethereal experience.

Sourav Dewan shares his experience on HolidayIQ: It is one of those places where you won't regret relaxing around. Sitting atop a hill that’s surrounded by several beautiful hills, it is uniquely beautiful in itself. Away from the cacophony of city life and being close to nature, it's an ideal place to hang out with your family. The landscape coupled with exotic beauty really captures the essence of this place and equally gives the opportunity to connect with yourself.

Day 3. Lose yourself in Buddhist culture at Sanchi

Understand Buddhist culture through stupas dating back to 12th century - all in Sanchi, which is like a dream in the rainy season. The monsoon rains cleanse the air and trees around the stupas look resplendent with dewy leaves. The small lake near the stupas makes it picture perfect. The vast expanse of green fields by the countryside makes for a blissful drive.

Sharad Sud shares his experience of Sanchi on HolidayIQ: One of the oldest stone structures in India, it is the finest example of Buddhist architecture. The site honestly has a different aura to it during the monsoon season. The rain adds a little sparkle to the structures.


Day 4. Be mesmerized at Dhuandhar Falls in Jabalpur

If watching the mist from this waterfall is not sheer bliss, then what is? The otherwise placid waters of the Narmada turn turbulent creating a stunning spectacle. The mighty roar of the falls sounds like roar of the king of jungle. Shear limestone rocks rising out of the placid waters of Narmada perturbed only by the slight drizzle and dark looming clouds create a stunning spectacle.

Aman Sinha shares his experience on HolidayIQ: Narmada flows gently through the towering marble rocks, but a little distance away, it becomes turbulent. Here it cascades into a mighty waterfall, called 'Dhuandhar'. The name literally means 'the smoke cascade'. The power of the waterfall can be gauged by the roaring sounds of the falls, which can be heard from a far distance.

Tip: The Dhuandhar falls looks hauntingly beautiful during the monsoon.

Get a history lesson or two in the magnificent city of Orchha. During monsoon, the normally quiet town turns into an enchanting landscape with dense forests, craggy hills and the sentient Betwa.

Abhijit Pal shares his experience of Orchha on HolidayIQ: The first thing that you become familiar with quickly in Orchha is the lush greenery of this small town. The best time to visit this place is during the monsoon. The majestic and ancient buildings stand gloriously against the background of dark and imposing clouds. The Betwa River and the lush greenery add to the beauty.

Day 6. Explore Bhopal - the historic city of lakes

Bhopal is a beautiful amalgamation of natural scenery, rich history and flawless urban planning. The two lakes that split the city have witnessed a swift growth of the city. The monsoon brings out the hidden magic of the fine mosques and palaces that still bear the aristocratic imprint of their former rulers. Soak in the soft sensuous experience of the melody of raindrops while walking through the bylanes and witness the strong influence of 19th-century Muslim architecture.

Jitendra Singh shares his experience of Bhopal on HolidayIQ: Bhopal is the city of lakes where you can enjoy your life at its fullest. This city has very less traffic and the weather is quite awesome. There are many places to visit around the city within 50 km of range. In monsoon all the lakes are full of water and greenery.

Vishwajeet Ganpate recommends visiting Bhopal during monsoon. He shares: It's beautiful in rainy season.
