Me, Maharashtra and Monsoon 

4 mins. read

Maharashtra during the monsoon is nothing short of magical. If you haven't experienced it yet, you're in for a treat. As someone who has grown up in this beautiful state, I can tell you that the monsoon turns Maharashtra into a lush, green paradise. Let me take you on a journey through my memories and show you why you should visit Maharashtra during the monsoon. 

When I think of the monsoon in Maharashtra, I think of the beautiful greenery. The rain makes everything green and fresh. The Western Ghats, a UNESCO World Heritage site, are especially stunning during this season. The hills are covered with thick forests, and the waterfalls are full of energy. 

I remember driving through Lonavala, Malavali, and Mahabaleshwar as a child. The cool breeze, the misty air, and the sight of clouds touching the mountains were amazing. Maharashtra has some amazing waterfalls that come alive during the monsoon. You get to see an amazing display of waterfalls throughout the landscapes. It’s a simple pleasure, but it brings so much joy.  

Maharashtra has many historic forts that are even more beautiful during the monsoon. The famous Raigad Fort, once the capital of the Maratha Empire, offers amazing views of the Sahyadri mountains. Hiking to the fort in the rain, with clouds all around, is a special experience. One of the main attractions near Malavali is Lohagad Fort. The trek to the fort is moderately easy and perfect during the monsoon.  

Close to Lohagad Fort is Visapur Fort, another great spot for trekking. The trail is slightly more challenging but offers equally rewarding views. Sinhagad Fort, close to Pune, is another great place to visit. The hike up is easy, and the view from the top is worth it. The cool monsoon breeze, the green landscape, and the sense of history make it a perfect weekend trip. 

Monsoon in Maharashtra is also a time to enjoy delicious local food. There’s nothing like sipping hot masala chai and eating bhajiyas (fritters) while it rains outside. Vada Pav, often called the Indian burger, tastes even better during this season. Street vendors selling these treats are everywhere, and the smell is hard to resist. I remember rainy evenings when my family would gather in the kitchen, frying bhajiyas and sharing stories. The warmth of those moments, with the rain outside, created memories that I treasure. 

One of the best things about the monsoon in Maharashtra is the joy of simple pleasures. Whether it’s walking in the rain, splashing in puddles, or just sitting by the window and watching the rain, the monsoon brings a sense of peace and happiness. 

As a child, I loved making paper boats and watching them float in the rainwater streams. It’s a simple activity, but it brought so much joy. Even now, when the first rains come, I feel a rush of nostalgia and the urge to make a paper boat. As I sit and watch the rain outside my window, I am reminded of all the wonderful memories the monsoon in Maharashtra has given me. The simple joys, the breathtaking views, and the warmth of family and friends have all left a deep mark on my heart.  

If you want a unique travel experience, visit Maharashtra during the monsoon. The beautiful landscape, the fun of exploring forts and waterfalls, the delicious food, and the simple joys make it an unforgettable trip. The monsoon brings everything to life, and seeing it for yourself is something you’ll always remember. 

So pack your bags, put on your raincoat, and get ready to explore Maharashtra in the monsoon. Trust me, it’s a trip worth taking! Happy Monsoon!
