The Last Days Of Monsoon And Coming Of The Winter

It is the time of the year when the monsoon starts receding, making way for the pleasant winter days. Coming six months are the best time to travel in the plains of North India and see its splendors, without worrying about the scorching heat of summer.

What are your winter travel plans?

If you are in north, you can visit the forts of Rajasthan and see how the royalty lived before the days of independence. You can see its beautiful deserts that are known for camel safaris and golden sunsets. It is also the right time to be in UP and MP, home to some popular tourist destinations like Varanasi, Agra, Khajuraho and Orchha.

In the south, plains of Tamil Nadu, beaches of Kerala and Goa tend to have the best weather in winter. Also worth visiting are the heritage sites in Karnataka - Hampi and Badami.

In a few weeks, it starts snowing in high passes in the Himalayas, effectively blocking road access to places deep in the mountains. Though the weather can be harsh, you can enjoy skiing in the valleys of Gulmarg and Auli.

For wildlife enthusiasts, it is a great season to see migratory birds that come to the plains for breeding. It may not be the best of times to see larger game in our national parks, but the foggy forest landscapes bathed in golden rays of morning sun look the most beautiful in winters.

It is a task requiring endurance, but I have decided to head to the mountains this winter and go trekking on a frozen river. Watch this space for my experiences, which I shall write about on my return in January. Where are you planning to go this winter?
