“Every summer has its own story but mine is a novel.”
As june comes, so does come the sun sucking on energy from our body. Drenched in sweat, all of us dream about sitting in the middle of the mountains enjoying cool fresh air and having the time of our life. So, I am a mountain person. I love everything about mountains and for me anytime is a good time to go on mountains. But when in June, going to a cool place becomes a must and here I am helping you in deciding the perfect place.
Below is the list of 5 places that is a perfect option to go in this hot summer month:

“The chirping birds make sound so sweet,
The clear blue sky oh! So high,
The sea is so deep and intense,
The many gardens and their fence,
The mountains so big and huge,
The forests giving out some clues,
The intensity of the wind and air,
Tells us, look around, something is there,
Yes, I am nature, and love me to the core,
Yes I am nature!”
A great place to plan a honeymoon, Kerala is a beautiful combination of nature, mountains, backwaters and beaches lined with palm trees. A perfect getaway this june, this place has an amazing coastline stretch of around 600 kms. The coastal breeze and backwaters makes this place pleasantly mild and a must to go.

Resting high on top, Kausani is one of the most picturesque hill station of Uttarakhand. Placed about 1800 meters above the sea level, this place is known to people for its serene and peaceful aura. Ahh! The solitude you will have and the peace you find here. I am literally jealous (wink). One of the most unexplored gems of Uttarakhand, Kausani is lined all over with pine trees and definitely a place to plan when everyone else is going to the crowded options.
