India is not a country, it’s an anthology of diverse cultures and unique experiences. No matter how many times you visit this country, there’s always something new ready to welcome you and make you feel home, even if you come back to the same place in a few years.
While the mystical charm of India could be the reason that makes every experience so undefinable, there’s definitely some element of geography playing its role here. The unique location of India on the world map is a gift for everyone who lives and visits the country.
In the north, it has the loftiest mountain range in the world, while in the south, India’s coastline brings the most mesmerizing chain of beaches you could ever find. The east is home to exotic and diverse wildlife, while the west comprises a vast open land of the Thar desert. For some of you, these broad categorizations sound like an unsuccessful generalization of India, and we know it. The only purpose of defining India that way was to show the diverse range of geographical landform that India has to offer.
India has a lot to offer for tourists coming to visit it during the winter season. Since, as most of you already know, India lies in the Northern hemisphere, the season of winter around here is from November to February. Visiting India around this time is truly an experience of a lifetime if you know the right places to visit.
Have you already planned a trip to India this winter, but don’t know which destinations are ideal for this season? This is what we are here for! So, without further ado, here are 7 of the best destination to travel during the winter season in India.
1. The Golden Triangle
Let’s start with the region that attracts most tourists in India during the winter. The reason why the Golden Triangle in India is among the most favored location to visit in India is that it is where the precious wonder of the world, The Taj Mahal, lies. But that’s not the only speciality of this place. The region is bound by three amazing cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur that have their own unique set of cultures, geographies, and of course, experiences.
Winter is undoubtedly the best time to visit the tiny yet fun-packed state of Goa, whose culture is a perfect fusion of Indian and Portuguese traditions. The beaches of Goa are already so well-known that we don’t really have to talk about them. The reason why Goa is best explored in the winters is that during that time, the clear skies and less humidity make for a perfect outing experience.
The capital city of Himachal Pradesh is an ideal hill station to visit in India during the winter. It’s only around this time that Shimla, commonly known as the Queen of hills, experiences a mild snowfall, which is just perfect enough to enjoy walking around the local market and skiing at another nearby hill station, Kufri. In short, if you are a big fan of snowfall and shopping, Shimla is your go-to place for this summer.
4. The Thar Desert
It’s no secret that deserts are best enjoyed during the colder months, for obvious reasons. The tiny desert of Thar is an ultimate destination for those who are coming to India to enjoy the cultural beauty of the state of Rajasthan. You can enjoy long camel rides and camp in the desert under a clear sky.
Another recommended hill station of India that you can check out is the capital city of Meghalaya, Shillong. Unlike Shimla, Shillong is less about snowfall and more about natural beauty. It’s mesmerizing waterfalls, lakes, forests and cultures will leave you spellbound with their magic. For nature lovers, this is certainly one of the best places to visit in India, especially during the winters.
