Winter is the best season in India as most of the months are hot and humid. Winter is a welcome respite from all the heat and wrath of the sun and if you happen to be a travel bug, you need to visit a few locations to make the best of the season.
Here is a list of five things that you can do in India during the winter season –
Beach trekking in Karnataka
Winters and beaches go hand-in-hand. If lazing around is not your thing, pack your bags and visit the exquisite beaches in Karnataka for adventures and a bit of trekking.
Stroll the streets of Mumbai
Mumbai is hot and humid for most of the year except for the months of December and January. This is the best time to explore the city of dreams and take a stroll in the streets of South Mumbai. You will be amazed by the amazing colonial structures in the city.
Enjoy the snow in Himachal Pradesh
We all love the snow during winter. Well most of us do and one just can’t ignore a long drive in Himachal Pradesh. The long stretch of snow is mesmerizing, enchanting and all adjectives of beautiful.
Desert safari in Jaisalmer
Winter is the best time to visit Rajasthan and if you don’t take a desert safari while you are there, your trip is incomplete. Enjoy the ancient forts, lakes, palaces of the state and spend the cold nights in the desert under a starlit sky. Khuri, located about 50 km from Jaisalmer is the best place for a desert safari.
Celebrate Christmas in Aizawl
Christmas is celebrated all across the country but nothing can beat the celebrations in Aizawl, Mizoram. It is the best time to mingle with the locals and enjoy the hospitality as festivities can stretch for a week. While you at Aizawl, enjoy their traditional Cheraw dance.
So, where are you planning to spend your wintercation this year?
