    Ziro is an old town in Arunachal Pradesh in India is home to the Apa Tani tribe and famous for its majestic rice fields, pine forests, and viewpoints. Tourists also flock the area on September to attend the annual music festival of Ziro.

    "Went to Ziro last September to check out the music festival and the scenes over there. My friends and I decided to stay at the Chalohoppo campsite which was a great decision since it was somewhat secluded but within close distance to the festival. Really appreciated how hospitable the locals are and how there are so many humbling activities to enjoy apart from the festival. Looking forward to coming back soon."

    "September is still part of India's monsoon season. I was there around August and was lucky that the weather was pleasant most of the time and it only drizzled or had medium showers. Enjoyed going through the gateway of India and of course, the Dahi Handi festival is not to be missed. India has possibly the best places to visit in September in Asia."

    Uttarakhand is a state in India known as the Land of Gods for its untouched natural beauty and spirituality. A place where you can be in the midst of scintillating views of the Himalayas and the Valley of Flowers, or take part in a Hindi pilgrimage while paying your respects to Char Dhams.

    "Uttarakhand is the best state to visit in September. I think the monsoon season does well for the area. You can see how green the fields are and the valley of flowers was indeed a captivating site. You will not run out of places to see and it's more than a one trip's worth of views."

    "My wife and I decided to have a Kodaikanal September to celebrate our anniversary. We thought the outskirts of India was the place to be if we wanted to get close to nature and away from the concrete jungle we live in."

    "My husband and I married in September and India was our honeymoon spot. We've been to countless beaches but haven't experience wildlife and nature like we did in Munnar. Weather was great! More than being a great destination, it was great to have found some semblance of peace and balance with my new partner-somewhat like a discovery weekend."
