Never explored the northeastern states of India? Don’t miss out on this beautiful place. A few years ago, this place was not popular among tourists but now it’s becoming the first choice. Green landscapes, snow-covered peaks of the Himalayas, fog boost the pleasure of boating in a clean river here. Dawki will surely give you a feel of heaven. The best time to visit here is in December.
Shimla, Himachal Pradesh
Whenever someone says ‘snowfall’, Shimla is one of the names that come into your mind at the spur of the moment. Since British rule, this is the most popular holiday spot in India. Shimla toy train, cottage stay in woods, offbeat camping, sunset at Scandal point, and skiing are some best activities you must do in Shimla. You can also watch Himalayan wildlife if you are interested.
If you are a bike lover and a long bike trip has been your dream for a long, it’s time to make it a reality. Dangerous roads with a view of blue rivers at one side and buff-brown mountain peaks at another side will give you a great feeling of adventure. Here, you will get a perfect blend of Indian-Nepali-Pakistani cuisines in almost all food items.
Nagoa Beach, Diu
Apart from mountains and hill stations, if you desire to explore some beaches, then welcome to Nagoa Beach, Diu. Visiting beaches in western India in December is a unique experience. Here, you can enjoy different beach activities like- jetski, paramount and banana boating, etc.
Rann Of Kutch, Gujrat
Rann of Kutch is the largest salty desert in the world. In the winter season, a fair named ‘Kutch Rann Utsav’ is organized here and Garba, authentic Gujrati food in tents, white salty sand desert in shiny moonlight will together elevate the vibe of this place. If you visit here even once, you will surely become a devotee of Kutchi hospitality and culture.
Udaipur, the city of lakes, is one of the best tourist destinations for a royal vacation. In December, the weather here is pleasant and creates a perfect vibe to enjoy the glorious palaces and lakes. Moreover, Udaipur is a heaven for food lovers. Here, Lilwa Burfi, Milk and Jalebi, Kachori, etc. are some must-try foods in Udaipur.
In short, one has more choices for popular destinations to visit in the winter season as compared to summer. If you have some more time to spend in Meghalaya, you must explore it as much as you can. In my opinion, you can skip Shimla as it is crowded during winters. Instead, you must go to Auli, Uttarakhand, or Leh. Further on, besides Nagoa Beach, if you want to explore beaches, Pamban in Tamilnadu, and Indira point in Andaman and Nicobar Islands are great choices.
