Think summer in Goa is only about the sweltering heat? Think again! Here's what a typical summer in Goa looks like....
The cool waters of rivers and ponds in Goa are some of the most desirable places to be at this time of year.
With summer vacations in full swing, kids enjoy leisure time.
Animals escape the heat of the sun by cooling down in local water bodies.
Summer is the time for Purumentachem Fest, from where people would stock up on culinary essentials, such as salt fish, dried chillies etc for the upcoming monsoon months.
One of the best things about the Goan summer is that a variety of delicious, local, wild berries, such as kantam and chunnam, are available only during this season.
In summer, when the water level in the Selaulim Dam decreases, the village of Curdi, in Sanguem, slowly resurfaces as it submerged underwater during the rest of the year.
The rising temperatures are great for dehydrating all kinds of local food items, and fish, rice, chillies and other culinary ingredients can be seen drying on many public roads, among other locations.
