Craving some sun and sand time at an idyllic beach town, or want to witness seasonal flowers at its full bloom? While March sees the onset of spring, April marks the beginning of summer, and this is the perfect time to break life’s monotony, and escape to one of these wonderful destinations:
Holi at Vrindavan
Vrindavan is the playground of Krishna and what’s better than celebrating the festival of colours at this very destination. While in Vrindavan, also visit the surrounding towns and experience one of the best heritage tours in India.
Shigmo Festival in Goa
You don’t need a reason to plan a trip to Goa, but well, you have more than enough reasons to plan a trip to Goa this month. Goa witnesses the very popular Shigmo Festival on March 21st – the festival is a celebration of spring, and the festivities include float parades, colourful costumes, and music & dance performances.
Velas Turtle Festival
Not many travellers know of this tiny coastal town in Maharashtra, but it is gaining immense popularity, thanks to the amazing Velas Turtle Festival. Around this time of the year, thousands of turtle eggs hatch, and the hatchlings take their baby steps towards the ocean – which is a sight to behold. Ensure that you don’t harm the eggs or the hatchlings, during the festival. When in Velas, also explore the pristine beaches that this town boasts of.
Soak up the sun in Lakshadweep
The pristine archipelago lagoons, unspoilt coral reefs, palm-covered islands, turquoise sea and stretch of white sand; Lakshadweep’s landscape is straight out of a storybook. The isolated island is less-explored and sees very less travellers as compared to the other destinations. It’s a paradise for water sports lovers, and that’s what makes Lakshadweep a perfect beach destination.
Valley of Flowers, Uttarakhand
The backdrop of blooming flowers and lush green valleys is what comes to mind when we talk of spring, and the Valley of Flowers is a perfect spring destination. The view of gorgeous flowers covering the valley in a carpet of colours, snow-capped mountains and blue skies, would leave you speechless. Nestled in Western Himalayas, Valley of Flowers is listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and can be explored only through trekking.
Travel to one of these destinations and experience spring at its best!
