I'd like to take a week off - either end June or end July. I'd like to go somewhere new but weather should be good - rainy is OK but crazy urban flooding is not.

I have to work in an office quite a bit so not looking to do anything hectic - gentle hiking is OK.

Can go to a neighboring country if get good price on flight.

Any tips?

Dunno where all you've been, and assuming you will enjoy non-urban rain a bit....

I suspect the first is already done. I recommend Wayanad if you like relaxing or walking about in the rains. If not, Andamans.

Ladakh or Lahaul/Spiti
Wayanad
Munnar
Andamans

(Not talking about closeby countries, for a week of relaxation I wouldn't go even that far.)

Trek to Muktinath in Nepal. As you only have one week, fly into Jomsom, trek to Muktinath and down to Tatopani. Drive back to Pokhara and Kathmandu. You can than fly back to Delhi.

Thank you

I've been to Ladakh, Spiti, Wayanad, Munnar and Pune. I've not been to Lahaul (probably because it reminds me of someone in a black and white hindi film saying lahaul wala quwwat). I'll check weather of both places - Andamans and Mutki...

Are there any places with really large trees?

On the beaches of the Andamans, yes, there are really large trees ! Is this a query from a botanical point of view ? Or from a "I'd like to sit somewhere dry and watch the rain" view point ?

On Beach Number Seven, on Havelock, there are massively huge trees. Can dig up some photos later.

If you have been to Spiti then you don't want to go to Lahaul.

I would've said Kashmir, but not now.
