India in Autumn: Best Cities to Witness Fall

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald.

The arrival of autumn brings an air of change. There is no better way to enjoy the autumn months than to take a stroll in the magnificent fall foliage. The autumn season is a lovely one. The leaves shift from green to a beautiful display of brilliant hues. The season is recognised by the trees’ shedding their leaves. This is how autumn gets its name, the fall season.

The cool autumn brings with it fresh air that sweeps you off your feet, conversations around bonfires, and the falling leaves that turn the ground orange and yellow. Autumn brings the season of joy to our country. With autumn comes the season of festivals. There are the harvest festivals such as Onam and then the joyous festival Navaratri. This time of year is one of the best to go sightseeing and enjoy the celebrations.

In India, there are a few locations at higher altitudes where you can see the season’s signature colour burst of russets and gold. Here is a list of the best places to visit in the fall.

Srinagar, Kashmir

Kashmir is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Any time of year is a suitable time to visit Kashmir. But Srinagar has a magnificent sight to behold in the fall as autumn transforms the region into a stage of majestic hues.

The most beautiful autumnal hues come to life when chinkara and maple leaves undergo an incredible fall metamorphosis. The magnificent gardens in Srinagar are among the best spots to witness the season in action. Leaves cover the grounds in fall foliage. Consider booking OYO 90740 Hotel Graceland and enjoy the mesmerising view from its balcony while sipping hot Kashmiri Kahwa.

Leh, Ladakh

Leh is one of the best fall destinations you can visit. In the autumn, Leh’s barren landscape is alive with golden tones. When planning, try to visit during the two-day Diskit Gustor festival that takes place every year. Ladakh is one of the favourite destinations for travellers and has much to offer in the fall season. The presence of beautiful things, whether they be the vibrant autumn foliage or the calm turquoise of the Indus River, is enough to mesmerise you. The best hotels, such as OYO 89391 Hotel Mountain View, offer beautiful views and hassle-free stays.

Mussorie, Uttarakhand

Hill stations like Mussoorie can sometimes be harsh during winter. So to explore this place, autumn comes to your rescue with its winds, freshly washed hilltops, and a green canopy as far as the eye can see. Around this time, the wildlife sanctuaries begin to open, and the drop in humidity makes it possible for tourists to spend extended periods outside. Do check out the 10-day autumn festival in the Queen of Hills. OYO 92514 Savitri Hotel Nand Palace is an excellent place to stay and enjoy autumn in Mussoorie.

Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

One of the best places to visit in the fall, Shimla is a popular destination all around the year. Golden-crimson hues surrounding the Shimla hills in the fall make strolls around the Mall and hot chocolate at the local cafes even more spectacular. The best time to visit Shimla is in September. There will be no more rain, but there will still be a lot of green. After a wet monsoon and the arrival of clear skies, this is also when several adventurous activities begin. OYO 78009 Avon Villa Kanlog is an easily accessible family hotel in Shimla with spacious, clean rooms, a kitchen and a parking facility.

Wayanad, Kerala

The splendour of this location in autumn is difficult to express in words. The area’s verdant landscape, still unspoiled by tourists, makes it an excellent place to unwind and rejuvenate, far from the hectic city life. Everything from mountains to valleys to lakes to waterfalls to woods to beaches sings in complete harmony. A hike through the paddy fields and coffee plantations will take your mind to ecstatic heaven. You can find family resorts in Wayanad to fully enjoy your stay.
