India in December is laden with festivals and holidays and never a moment to spare in between. As the North gets out its winter wardrobe, the sultry cities of the South simmer down to a perfect temperature. Sunny afternoons are capped off with cool, sweet evenings. Beaches are flooded with soft breezes and the deserts of the north grow cool.
The North-Eastern monsoon will just be weaning itself off the East Coast, so factor that into your plans as well. The first month of the tourist season comes with a corresponding rise in prices. It’s all worth it because of the weather alone. If you’re booking through us, we’ll even ease the price hike.
Where to go in December
If you want to focus your stay down South, it’ll be very pleasant. Check out some of the beautiful ancient cities like Hampi that lie away from the coast. They can be impossible to visit in the summer.
If you can carve out two weeks for the trip, you can try this route.
It’s also a great time to explore the deserts of Rajasthan. The temperatures can drop quite sharply at nightfall so be warm. If you have something ambitious in mind, like a long trek, now’s a good time. December means not having to worry about dehydration or heat-induced headaches. If that sounds interesting to you, you can read more about it here.
