Besides the Maximum City, Mumbai, the Indian state of Maharashtra is also home to offbeat beaches, award-winning vineyards, and the lush Sahyadri mountain range. Maharashtra is a bountiful state, well-connected to the rest of the world through Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport. The landscape here turns verdant during abundant rains from June to September and a pleasant climate follows until March. Monsoon and winter are a great time to enjoy the state’s famous hill stations as well as its sparkling coastline. The summer months from March to May are apt for visiting Mumbai when the locals abscond on their annual vacations and the city’s traffic eases up somewhat.
