However, there are several places that receive heavy rainfalls leading to a flood-like situation, road blockades, and a great deal of damage to life and property. So, here’s a heads-up to your monsoon plan with places you should be avoiding this vacation.
Who can forget when Uttarakhand was ravaged by monsoon rain in 2013? This place is known for its magnificent beauty and stunning views of the Himalayas but during monsoon, it encounters heavy landslides. So, if you want to fall in love with the state’s beauty, then it’s better to plan a visit in summers.
