Where better to escape the grey, dreary winter than in the colourful country of India. As one of the most vibrant places on earth, you’ll feel a world away from your dark, cold commute when you’re zipping through the streets of Mumbai in a tuk-tuk or drifting down the backwaters of Kerala on a barge.
As large parts of India
are stiflingly hot during the summer months (no one wants to be
traipsing around hectic city streets in 40-degree heat and high
humidity), winter is the perfect time to make the most of all this
country has to offer. Whether it's your first trip to India and
you're heading for the highlights of Rajasthan,
or you're a seasoned pro and looking for something a bit different
(the Indian Himalayas, perhaps?), we've got you covered. Our
experts know India inside-out and back-to-front and know the best
times to visit different parts of the country so you can either
enjoy some winter sun, or head to even colder climes up in the
mountains for a spot of trekking.
If it's wildlife wonders that you're after on your winter sun
holiday to India, head to the centre of the country to discover
some of India's many fantastic national parks, such as Bandhavgarh,
Pench, Kanha and many more. You may be lucky enough to spot
tigers (our experts can
suggest the best places and times to go to increase your chances),
panthers, hyenas, sloth bears and plenty more - including perhaps
some well-known characters from Kipling's The Jungle Book.
For the city slickers and culture vultures, we could write a
list as long as our arm of cities and sites worth visiting,
including Rajasthan's vibrant cities of Jodphur, Jaipur and
Udaipur; the 30,000 plus temples of Tamil Nadu, or the
hustle and bustle of Mumbai or Calcutta.
So whether it's part of a family holiday, a romantic honeymoon
or just a winter getaway, our specialists can help you plan the
perfect winter sun holiday to India.
