October is the ‘in-between-month’ in India. It is the time when there are no rains and even the weather isn’t that warm or cold. It marks the start of the tourist season and the hotel rates are slowly on the rise. October brings in different varieties of weather zones in the country. In Ladakh and Uttarakhand, it starts to snow by October. The central part of India and Rajasthan can be, however, quite pleasant. The cold, however, takes over all the hill stations up in the North. So, in case you plan to tour all over the country, you need to make sure that you pack many layers which can be easily removed!
And in case you have a vacation in mind and thinking about where to go on a holiday in October in India, there are a number of places to make a choice from. Destinations like Andaman, Kerala, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Orissa, Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and the beauties of Khajuraho, Varanasi and Ranthambore shouldn’t be given a miss! And if not a problem for you, then why not celebrate traveling in this special month of the Hindu calendar and make it all the more memorable? Starting from the hills in the north to the warm shores of the south, October is the best month to travel in the country. Traversing the Golden Triangle circuit that takes you to Delhi, Jaipur and Agar is an absolute must.
It is also the perfect month for getting a glimpse of the varied wildlife in the country. Hence, what about a wildlife tour in some of the best national parks in India? Thrilling, isn’t it? From the enchanting Kaziranga National Park in Assam to Sundarbans National Park in West Bengal offer an enthralling experience. To listen to the call of the wild, Bandhavgarh National Park is yet another important place.
While the atmosphere plays a very important role while choosing the best time to travel in India in October, another thing which you must remember is that it is the month of festivals. October has a lot of events to look forward to and you can even be a part of one of those during your holidays. It is the month to have fun and in order to celebrate festivals, October is just perfect. Celebrating the exuberant Navratri in Vadodara will be an experience of a lifetime. You can pay a visit to the Lakshmi Vilas Palace and Kirti Mandir and be a part of the colorful festival in this third largest city in Gujarat. And while in Gujarat, do not forget to taste their delicious local cuisines. The International Folk Festival in Jodhpur raises to the fun quotient.
If you wish to get a different taste of Dussehra, then visit Kullu during the festival time. Their celebrations are grand and they carry the idol of Lord Raghunath in a palanquin. It is a sight to behold and something that you shouldn’t miss at all. Apart from the festivities, paying a visit to the natural hot water springs will make you refreshed like never before.
