Rainy season is probably the most awaited as the weather becomes cool but not cold. The drizzling rain-drops make the surroundings romantic giving you the optimum climate to have some fun. Jaipur is always beautiful but it takes a new form in monsoon. The holy Saawan month falls during the season and the whole city gets colorful. Plan a trip to Jaipur right now as we are giving you the most compelling reasons-

1.Trekking to the Hills

Pink city turns into green city during monsoons. All the hills get covered in green coat of plants. This is the best season to walk up and down these hills. Trekking around Samode, Amer, Galtaji and many more locations is a cathartic experience when there is so much beauty to lay your eyes upon. Even if you are not much of a walker, you can go for small strolls to freshen up in the cool breeze.

Besides roaming around in the greenery, you can admire the beauty of palatial monuments like Amber fort, Nahargarh fort and Jaigarh fort. After a tiring trek, simply rent a Segway scooter and drive throughout these grand structures for a brush with history.

2.Night Tourism

3.Shop for Leheriya
