Hi Friends,

I'm trying not to crosspost, but the original question did not get any answers....

Kingfisher Air has got a great promotion UK to India in July 2010. So we are considering returning but are also a bit anxious about the monsoon.

Any tips or considerations?

Munnar is good in Monsoons, you'll enjoy !
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Less than 2000 euro's for our family of four AMS-LHR-BOM vv.

The rest is at least 800 euro's more expensive.

Monsoons have lots of rain. Last year (2009the monsoon was delayed. So there was a 20% shortfall in total rainfall. Only avoid hillstations during monsoons. Landslides happen and your travel plans will slide too.

South India is lovely during the monsoons which begin there in the first week of June and ends by September, with a longish bout of rains at the beginning and then spread across after that. I would not worry too much of closed roads, that is very rare.

Best places to visit during monsoons are in Kerala State - the hill stations of Munnar and Wayanadu - and Karnataka State - the coffee estates of Chickmagalur, Kodagu and Jog Falls. You will not see wildlife much during the rainy season, so places like Thekkady/Periyar are not great options. Goa is a world of its own during rains, and you can wrangle great discounts on hotel rooms. Sea will be very rough though.
