Monsoon season is still ahead of us this year – it lasts between June and September. I am publishing this article now, because maybe it may encourage some of you you to visit North-Eastern India during this period. You have to remember that it is the most rainy season of the year. The rains also cause floods in the valleys, and the heavily swampy ground poses the risk of landslides occurring on the slopes of hills and mountains. For this reason, conditions of movement in the state may be difficult or sometimes impossible. However, this does not make this season unattractive due to rain.
On the contrary, the weather can delight!
In our case, the place where we live is located in the hilly part of the state of Manipur. Kangpokpi is a town situated 45 km north from Imphal (about an one hour’s drive). The climate prevailing here differs from that in the valley, in the central part of the state. In reality, the temperature is more pleasant (between 20 and 30 degrees during the day), the air is brighter, and the rain is largely a lottery. Usually a few days of rain with thunderstorms, then a few sunny days with showers. In my personal feeling, a more pleasant version of Polish summer. The weather in Manipur is a topic suitable for a separate article – let me know if you would like to read more about it.
Perfect conditions for time-lapse videos
Are you interested in time lapse photography? In that case, during the monsoon season you will be in seventh heaven here. Fast moving clouds will allow to shoot within 20-30 minutes enough of pictures for 7-10 seconds long time-lapse videos with really dynamic movement. Below our time-lapse from photos taken during monsoon, and by the way, we invite you to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
An oasis for amateurs of one-day trips and hikes
It doesn’t matter if you like hiking in the hills or a trip on a scooter in the surrounding villages. The location of Kangpokpi provides a lot of interesting directions for everyone, especially nature lovers who love hiking on offbeat treks, or those who want to get to know local cultures and peoples.
I hope I did not bore too much with the introduction. This time, there will be only photos until the very end of the article 🙂
