Can you please suggest which are the best places to visit in August in North East?
Hi, if you like rains, then you will surely like Northeast India during August. Monsoon is Northeast usually starts in July, and August month is also quite rainy in the region. It is the best time to enjoy the lakes, natural springs, waterfalls etc in the region. The only concern is that, the roads conditions get very bad in some parts of the region, because of which travelers may face some problems. Other than that, there are no other issues that can stop you from enjoying the wonderful greenery of the region during rainy season !! A view of Nohkalikai falls, in Cherrapunji, Meghalaya
