With the festive holidays tapering off, most of us are looking forward to the winter vacations. For those who love to plan early, here are our five favourite places you may like to go to.



Havelock Island, Andaman and Nicobar

Now called the Swaraj Dweep, this island can be easily reached from Port Blair, the capital of A&N. The island is known for its tranquil beaches lapped by the azure waves of the Bay of Bengal. Popular beaches here are Radhanagar Beach (a Blue Flag beach), Elephant Beach and Kalapathar Beach. It offers a variety of water sports. You may also go snorkeling and scuba diving here.

Auli, Uttrakhand 

Auli is one of Uttarakhand's top winter tourist attractions, especially for its ski slopes, suitable for both beginners and experienced skiers. A five metre long ski lift system connects the base town of Joshimath to the Gorson slopes. Surrounded by coniferous forests, Auli offer a panoramic view of some of the highest mountain peaks of India.

Jaisalmer, Rajasthan 

At first glance, the undulating desert looks like a blank space. But slowly you realise it has its own attractions. Jaisalmer, which lies on the edge of the desert, is a perfect getaway if you want to enjoy the Indian desert. Enjoy the medieval fort and other buildings, go for desert camping, and enjoy local cuisine, handicrafts, and music.

Coorg, Karnataka 

Coorg, a beautiful hill town, is a popular tourist destination. This region is known for its lush, green coffee plantations and is surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. In addition to the stunning environment, the region is well-known for hosting adventurous sports such as rock climbing and trekking.

Gangtok, Sikkim 

Capital of Sikkim, Gangtok nicely balances the past with the present. Take a look at the monasteries by day and enjoy music at the pubs in the evening. Mt Kanchedzonga overlooks the town and on a clear day you may enjoy a panoramic view of the snow peaks from the various view points. With special permission, drive to Nathu La, a mountain pass on the Indo-Chinese border. Do not forget to check out the local handicrafts if you like shopping for ethnic goods.
