The magical fresh air of autumn and winter has an entirely different vibe. The cool breeze that sweeps you off your feet, bonfires, the fall colours of the leaves and the celebrations that come around the corner during this time of the year can't be put down in one word.

Here are 5 places to visit in India between Autumn and Winter:

1) Kashmir

There is no better time to visit Kashmir than in autumn and winter. It is a travellers' paradise at all times of the year. In autumn, Kashmir is illuminated in all shades of red, yellow and orange, creating frames that seem to be carved from a book. The red-carpeted ground, the misty hills, the tall maple trees, and age-old natural retreats make Kashmir an enchanting place to visit at this time.

2) Uttarakhand

In India, Uttarakhand is one of the most popular places to visit during the autumn and winter season, especially for the young youth who loves trekking. During these months, most tourists visit hill stations like Nainital, Rishikesh and Mussoorie. The cool winds, freshly washed hilltops and lush green canopy in Uttarakhand will make your visit unforgettable.

3) Kerala

Kerala welcomes travellers with open arms especially during the autumn and winter seasons when it is fresh from heavy monsoon rain, the backwaters, vast green landscapes, picturesque paddy fields and the fresh breeze of the countryside. It is just the right kind of ambience to put you at ease and let you unconsciously go on a spiritual journey and discover yourself amidst the emerald landscape and the quaint towns.

4) Mysore

Mysore is beautiful at any time of the year, but the city springs to life in the fall just like the rest of India. Mysore is a cosy place where the temperature ranges between 20 and 25 degrees in autumn and at the start of winter. This is the time when the landscape is fresh from the monsoon rains and the air is refreshing.

5) Nagaland

There is nowhere better than Nagaland to visit during autumn and winter. It is a treasure trove for adventure and nature. You will be captivated by its natural beauty and every mile here is a visual feast.

There are a lot of destinations in India that can make for a great autumn and winter getaway, but the above-mentioned ones are certainly the best. It is a rare combination of excitement and serenity that all of these locations provide, thus they should not be missed.
