Best Places to Visit in December

For Those Who Love the Cold

1. Munnar, Kerala

Munnar, Kerala

For all those carry the love for winters in their hearts, need to look no further, as this destination is perfect to enjoy winter. Now, where can you find an emerald green carpet of tea plantations, that too with a backdrop of rolling hills covered in shrouds of mists? Can you even begin to imagine the sheer levels of tranquility? No, you just can’t, sitting in your 4-walled homes. So, better pack your bags with the woolens and head straight-to this de-facto winter destination.

2. Auli, Uttarakhand

Auli, Uttarakhand

This place is a mash-up of natural winter beauty landscape and a breeding ground for winter sports lovers. It almost goes like a moth to the flames kind of thing. And, in case you haven’t heard, this place has been dubbed as the winter wonderland of the country! Skiing is just synonymous to this place as there are smooth land slopes and there’s a background of snow-capped mountains. This snow nation also serves as the perfect summit to view the Himalayan ranges like Nanda Devi, Kamet, and Mana. And, don’t forget to dig in the Garhwali cuisine. And of course, we don’t need to tell you that you can play all day in the snow, make snowmen or throw snowball at others (By others, I mean friends, relatives or acquaintances, and not strangers. This is no Holi, trust me.) or, you can just sleep in at your staying. Winter morning sleeps are one of the best things in the world.

3. Sonamarg, Jammu, and Kashmir

Sonamarg, Jammu and Kashmir

Okay, at this place, it actually snows! It is among the top places to visit in December, because in this month there are subzero levels of temperature, and you get to see the glaciers. Thajiwas glacier is your best bet if you ask us. Besides this, skiing,  snowboarding, and sledge rides are popular sports here. It’s so cold here that it has the Christmassy vibe throughout the month.

4. Manali, Himachal Pradesh

Manali, Himachal Pradesh

Snow can be romantic too. This place is an ostensible winter destination for all the lovebirds, evident from the fact that it is frequented by newlyweds towards the end of the year. Tall deodar setting with thick layers of snow all around the place makes the fun of paragliding, rock climbing, and ice skating just double. Plus, trekking in Koshla-Treeline, Solang Valley, and Lamadugh Meadows are simply great.

5. Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

Last but not least, Shimla is a highly preferred travel zone of the country in winters. And, if you are not sure about the whole winter vacation idea, I say you start from here. Because it has everything from offering the soft beauty of snow to winter sports. Plus, here is a place where you can flaunt your classy long coats and boots, for the place is kind of a mod.
