EXPLORE: MONSOON DESTINATIONS WITH STERLING HOLIDAYS
Shirley Mistry tells you about a few monsoon packages from Sterling Holidays, that make for exciting, relaxing getaways this season
Monsoon is the perfect time to plan a weekend getaway or a short trip to one of the many destinations across the country, that come to life when the rains pour over the landscape, wiping off dust to reveal lush greens. Steering clear of popular destinations will not only results in a calmer holiday, but pick destinations such as Yercaud, Yellagiri, Thekkady or Ooty and you can take advantage of great offers by Sterling Holidays.
We recommend their 3-night/ 4-day package in Munnar and Thekkady (first two nights in Munnar and one night in Thekkady). The package, priced at Rs 32,000, includes a special Ayurvedic massage session, a visit to a spice plantation and a sightseeing tour of Munnar. If you’d like to stick to the tried and tested, they have a 3-night/ 4-day Goa package for Rs 17,010 which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also avail of a 10% discount on room service and laundry. Situated in Betalbatim, the resort is far from touristy spots and offers fun beach activities for children as well as adults.
