The month of May is when the summer has really taken over all of India. The sun is directly on us and the temperature is steadily rising in the plains and the plateaus. Though some storms are sure to occur the relief is not very much. So just like April the best locations now are again in the hills. Shimla, Darjeeling, Gangtok all can be visited during this time.
Also one can add the roads to Ladakh and Lahaul-Spiti is opening up. One can opt to visit these cold deserts and see how the lush green Himalaya changes to the barren moon-like landscape. These places offer a different outlook on life, a different lifestyle and different topography. The lives here is very slow paced and hazier, as people have not much to do. One can opt for the Chaddar trek in Ladakh or visit the village of Komik, and see the highest post office in the world in the Spiti-Valley.
Ooty and Coorg are also open to tourist and offering tourists all modern amenities and luxury. Best places to let go and relax and breathe the fresh air.
