Winters are here fellow travelers and with it comes the list of the various places which are way better in the winters and are a must visit this year. Rejoice.

1. Jaisalmer

JaisalmerWinters in Jaisalmer sets in late October and lasts until February. The temperature here remains pleasurable during this time of the year, making it favorable for all kinds of people. While it’s known for its rather hot and humid climate through most parts of the year, winters are relatively cool and pleasant enough to spend over the desert and not get sunburned.

December – January are the ideals months you should visit Jaisalmer when the nights are much cooler and days have a winter chill in the air. Along with the exciting desert safari in Jaisalmer, camel rides across the sand dunes and stargazing while camping in the dessert are some of the things you can enjoy here. Make your loved one feel special by gifting her a stay at Royal Haveli.

2. Pushkar


Pushkar is a town in the Ajmer district in the Indian state of Rajasthan. The story goes that when Sati died, Shiva cried so much and for so long, that his tears created two holy ponds -one at Pushkar in Ajmer in India and the other at Ketaksha, which literally means raining eyes, in Sanskrit. It is often called “Tirth Raj” – the king of pilgrimage sites – and has in recent years become a popular destination for foreign tourists.

Pushkar is one of the oldest existing cities in India. It lies on the Shore of Pushkar Lake. The date of its actual origin is not known, but legend associates Brahma with its creation. Other than being called the “Tirth Raj” it has gradually been attracting a lot of tourists to take part in its vividly colorful and amusing Camel fair, better known as the Pushkar Mela.

This is a yearly event, where you see the selling and purchasing of decorated camels, witness the Rajasthani culture soaked in beliefs and also see huge hot air balloons filling up the sky in the evenings!! What’s not to love?

3. Himachal


Red shiny apples overtopped with snow in Shimla, trekking routes covered in snow in Kasol, and midnight snowfall in Manali, You name it and Himachal has it!! How many of us have grown up dreaming of those Hollywood movie scenes where you run out and make snowballs to run back inside the rooms with blasting heaters and warm soup? Well here’s the chance to live it all!!!

From super fun winter sports destination to witnessing the magical snowfall, Give Himachal a chance and it will fulfill all your childhood dreams!! Plan for Shimla this winter season and stay With Tripnstay.

6. Goa

Goa is more of a party destination for the winters rather than being an actual winter destination. I mean, right from social media to television, to our friends and a lot of our other favorite sources have made sure that each and every year we virtually experience the fun and the amazing time that Goa offers during the end of the year!!

The beaches are crowded, the shacks overflowing with party people, the Sunburn music festival, the night sky on top of the beach and the mutual feeling of enjoyment and fun on everybody’s faces very easily just sums up why Goa is ‘The’ place you should be going to this New Years!!!

This is one of the most happening places in India.
