Leisure travel is seasonal — for we oft think about best times to visit a place. Beaches are deemed appropriate for winters, hill getaways a popular choice for the summers. Let me urge you to think differently — for winter are a magical time in India and the entire country is open for exploration. And whatever may be your winter wants, its all here -

  1. Head to the hills — Narkanda — This hamlet is perched high above Shimla, at an altitude of 8600 ft and so it is natural that it snow during this time. But the stays are equipped, and it’s the perfect time to sit cozy in the all-wooden chalets, sip warm apple cider and see the white extravaganza outdoors. For the more adventurous, it is the second most popular ski-ing destination in all of India. I must recommend the Yak tours, and the piping hot Maggie stations atop the peaks, making it quite the winter sojourn.

So whatever you choose, hills, beaches, heritage or wildlife, make sure of only one thing. Leave your stories, take only your memories. Be responsible.
