New Delhi: The months of May, June and July are that of scorching heat and humidity in most parts of India, and also the most popular for Indians to go on a vacation with their friends and family.

While most people prefer to go to hilly destinations to escape harsh sunlight, some prefer to let their hair down by the beach.


Whether one is looking for a vacation by the shore or in a valley tucked into a mountain range, here are some Indian and international options to explore:


The Indonesian island of bountiful beaches, beautiful scenery, warm people, and mouth-watering cuisines surely makes Bali a strong candidate for a summer holiday destination. Travellers can trek on the Mount Batur volcano, walk along Katu Beach or visit the Bali Safari or Uluwatu Temple.


This region attracts tourists due to its beautiful snow-capped mountains and rugged terrain. It is an ideal vacation spot for nature lovers, bikers, trekkers, and mountaineers.


Over time, the country gained recognition as a bucket-list holiday destination. The spectacular mountains views, azure skies, a vast expanse of greenery, and organic food make Bhutan an ideal getaway for summers. One could also visit Buddhist monasteries, and explore the cities of Paro, Tashi and the Punakha Valley, among other places.


This destination is known for its scenic tea plantations, mountains, picturesque valleys and an array of flora and fauna. Sitting on a height of over 6,000 feet, Munnar has a number of options, including the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is primarily known for sighting tigers.
