Teetering on the eastern side of the Indian peninsula, Darjeeling is an enthralling hill station that is endowed with pleasant weather, and stunning natural landscape. It is one of the best places to go in June to escape the summer heat. 

From spending an eventful evening with the indigenous mountain tribes to enjoying the grand view of the Kanchenjunga mountain ranges and sipping on the most delicious cup of tea made from the locally-grown tea leaves, Darjeeling has plenty of things to offer. 

While you are here, don’t miss out on taking a ride on the ‘toy train’ that takes you on a 2-hour ride from Darjeeling to Ghum and back, and enroute it offers the most amazing scenic view. Keep your camera ready, you may want to click everything. Such is the beauty of this place. 

You can take your travel experience a notch higher by choosing to stay at Summit Hermon, a Club Mahindra affiliate resort in Darjeeling, West Bengal.

From here you get the finest view of the majestic mount Kanchenjunga and you can indulge in an array of activities to keep yourself entertained.

Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh

It is a known fact that the North Eastern states in India are endowed with some of the best natural beauty. And, perhaps has been extra generous with Tawang in blessing it with surreal landscapes. The weather here remains pleasant all through the year, and if you are coming here in June, you would have the best respite from the heat prevailing in most parts of mainland India. 

Apart from the bountiful nature, Tawang is a paradise for adventure lovers. From nature walking, trekking to skiing there are many activities that you can take part in. Not to mention, the presence of the magnificent monasteries add to the charm and beauty of the place.

Coorg, Karnataka

Imagine yourself sitting in a room, sipping a delicious cup of coffee, and enjoying the view of the lush green hills. Well, you can live this scenario for real in Coorg. Located in the Western Ghats in Karnataka state, it is a popular tourist destination in India and one of the best places to travel in June.

The place is replete with waterfalls that flow with full intensity in June, you can enjoy the spectacular view of the walls and many other natural wonders this place has to offer. Each day you spend here will make you fall in love with the place a little more. 

Many travellers have corroborated that the hardest thing they have to do in life is to bid farewell to Coorg and go back home. But, as long as you are here, you can make every day memorable. And to add to your amazing experiences, you can stay at the Club Mahindra Virajpet or Club Mahindra Madikeri resorts in Coorg. 

Srinagar, Kashmir

A ‘heaven on earth,’ Srinagar needs no particular reason or season to visit. The snow-capped Himalayan mountain range in the background, the scintillating gardens and the dazzling Dal lake are reasons enough for you to visit Srinagar at any time of the year. 

But, June is probably the best time as the summer is at its crescendo in the rest of India, and Srinagar nonchalantly basks in pleasant weather. Srinagar is one of the unique places to visit in India as it caters to all kinds of tourists. Whether you want to enjoy a laid back summer holiday, or indulge in some adventure activities, both are profusely available here and you can be sure to take back plenty of awesome memories. 

A visit to Srinagar, Kashmir would be incomplete without visiting Dal Lake. And, while many tourists take the usual Shikara ride to witness its dazzling beauty, you can actually stay in a houseboat by checking-in at the Kashmir House Boats, an affiliate Club Mahindra resort in Kashmir. Located in the heart of Dal Lake, you can enjoy an undiluted view of the lake and enjoy the most delectable Kashmiri cuisine.
