Don’t we all love winters? As the cold descends, Christmas ahead and the new year right at the corner, winter is truly beautiful. Many schools and offices give the year-end off and if you, like us, want to make most of the holiday season here is a list of 5 best places in India that look ethereal.
Patnitop, Jammu and Kashmir
Patnitop is known for its apple farms, valleys, and stunning nature views during summer but in winters it becomes a skiing and paragliding heaven in India. Many tourists visit Patnitop in December as at that time its beauty is at the peak but the temperatures are sub-zero. However, the views more than make up for it.
You might be wondering why Rajasthan, that known for its hot temperature, is in our winter favourite destinations. But Ranthambore in winter witnesses a huge drop in temperature and many tourists visit Ranthambore because there is an increased chance of spotting a tiger.
Murudeshwar is famous as it has the second highest Shiva statue in the world. A large number of tourists visit Murudeshwar in winter because the water levels decrease making scuba diving possible. Beaches of Murudeshwar are clean and untouched by excessive commercialization. In February, Maha Shivaratri is celebrated by the local people and many tourists also participate in the gala.
Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh
Lucknow is a popular North Indian city famous for its art and culture. Many tourists visit Lucknow in winters as roaming the streets is super fun. Also, try the delicious food available in the city.
