Here are some of the top sightseeing destinations you should consider for your next frosty trip, and don’t fret because if you do not like the snow, then we have got someplace a little warmer for your summer soul to explore too!
The heart of Kashmir and a painting come alive; Srinagar is one of the most beautiful destinations to visit in India during winter.

Rent a shikara and watch a romantic sunset surrounded by the majestic mountains while relaxing on a houseboat. Families can opt for a family resort in Srinagar and head out to explore a UNESCO World Heritage Site – The Mughal Gardens. You could also visit the Shankaracharya Temple and the Hazratbal Shrine. Do not forget to buy a gorgeous carpet or soft woolly pashminas as souvenirs!
Surrounded by Karakoram in the north and Zanskar in the south, Ladakh is on the list of every adventure sports lover. One of the best destinations for high-altitude trekking and river rafting, Ladakh is the dream destination for extreme temperatures enthusiasts. When visiting this snow-capped paradise, you can opt for a family hotel in Ladakh OYO 5768 Hotel Lhalingkha for a luxurious OYO resort stay for a lavishing vacation or choose one of the budget OYO hotels in Ladakh to keep your luggage while you head and try your hands at one of the many adventures Ladakh has to offer.
A beautiful co-existence of Hinduism and Buddhism can be witnessed in Sikkim, which has given rise to its peaceful culture. Serene prayer flags and Buddhist monasteries are abundant in this little state. You book a hotel overlooking the great valley and take a day tour of Gangtok, visiting the historic Nathu La Pass and the adjoining Baba Mandir. If you want to witness Sikkim’s breathtaking, raw beauty and wild rhododendrons and interact with welcoming locals to learn more about the culture, go for a road trip to Lachung-Lachen. Book a family hotel in Sikkim, like Capital O 9686 Hotel Shantiniketan, that offers a gorgeous view of the valley from the rooms.
Any list is incomplete without adding the romantic ‘Queen of Hills’ – Shimla. One of the top sightseeing destinations, you can take a deep dive into the rich colonial history while appreciating the beautiful Victorian architecture and walking on Mall Road with your loved ones. Unwind in one of the OYO hotels and enjoy the twinkling lights of tiny houses sitting along a bonfire to keep you warm from chilly winds.
For those who want to stay away from the freezing temperatures and just want to enjoy a nice winter chill, Ooty is the place for you. Misty mountains and foggy lakes greet you in Ooty during the winters. Devoid of snow, this is the perfect hill station if you just want to be in the lap of nature, breathing in the clean, fresh air and walking on for hours, taking in the mesmerising charm of Ooty with a misty veil. For a magical experience, you can choose a good family hotel in Ooty and unwind with the fog making its way in. You can also trek to Doddabetta Peak, which is usually covered in mist during winter. A popular destination for couples and honeymooners, Ooty’s romantic charm can be witnessed, especially during the winter months. You can choose OYO 9080 Hillwood Cottages, the family resort in Ooty, for a lavish stay!
When the hills call, you have to answer. Hill stations have a charm of their own, and they can be explored solo, with your plus one, with a gang of friends or with your loving family. OYO Rooms are readily available in popular tourist destinations and famous landmarks. When it comes to the type of property you want to book, OYO has a wide range for all – from budget hostels to luxury resorts.
