Jaipur is infamous for it’s unbearable heat that makes it impossible to step out but Jaipur makes it up for all that with it’s monsoon. But that too lasts for a short while so let me tell you how to make the most of it:
1. Coffee and rain
Coffee and rain go hand in hand. To feel the happiness and enthusiasm of the people in jaipur after finally witness the first showers of rain go to grab a cup of coffee in one of the many cafes in jaipur. The most recommended cafes are curious life coffee roasters and town coffee and if you want to take the more rustic route go for Indian coffee house on M.I road.
2. Reconnect with yourself
Life comes to a standstill when the rain comes down. So it gives you and opportunity to sit back and relax and spend time with yourself. Go to art garh and sign up for many activities they have there like sip and paint and pottery and spend some well deserved me time.
3. Walk along water
The 2 most beautiful lakes in Jaipur The Mansagar Lake and The Maotha Lake offer mesmerising views during the monsoon months. Here you will find solace and a place to sit and enjoy a cup of chai. So this monsoon take a walk along these lakes to fall in love with the city all over again.
4. Discover the untrodden
Reconnect with your adventurous side this rainy season and walk the hidden trails amidst the nature. Jaipur has many places to trek to but one of the best trails is Hathni Kund trek. In monsoons you will find the land covered in lush green trees and the cascading waterfall brimming with water.
5. Time to unwind
And the last not so hidden but worth all the hype is watching the sunset from Nahargarh fort. The fort is build at a height that gives you an exquisite view of the city. This is the perfect way to unwind after a hard day as you see the sun merge into the city skyline.
