Magical Goa in Monsoons [A photo essay]

Goa- the busiest and the most ‘happening’ tourist state in India. Millions of tourists- international and domestic flock to this beach paradise every year. Traditionally known for its most pristine beaches to the eccentrically ‘suseguard’ (relaxed), cashews and off course the booze, welcomes more than half of its tourist population in the months of ‘October-January.’ Some do visit the place in summer, however, it can get devastatingly hot.

But rarely, people explore Goa, in the rainy seasons in India, typically June- August, when the landscapes of Goa change dramatically from a scorching pan (due to the hot summer sun), to cool off with overflowing rivers, excited sea, and the ounces of solitude on beach that accompanies (the less touristy season.) @Srinistuff and I decided to venture out for  a green, misty and wet Goa!

The skies send out a signal…. Monsoons are coming soon

         If you want to ditch the hordes of international and domestic travelers alike in Goa, ditch the “peak season.” Visit Goa in the rains

Chuck the booze for a change and enjoy the ‘Kingfisher chai’ to beat the chilly breeze the                                                                                        rains bring.

So what say? Next time,  Goa in Monsoons?
