If you want to travel on a low budget this winter, visit these destinations

The best thing about travelling in India is getting to experience a myriad topography. Off-season destinations in India allow travellers to explore a given destination on a budget. If you are low on budget and would like to experience some soul-stirring destinations, then we have some great places for you. Most hill stations in India are quite empty during the winters, as this is the off-season. So, you get the best of both the worlds. Though, to be very honest, you might not get the touristy excitement during this time; but if you are looking for a quiet holiday without the distractions on a low budget, this is your chance.

Darjeeling

If you think you can handle the cold, then do go to Darjeeling from December to March. The place is usually packed from May to September, and tourism starts to dwindle from November end. Going to Darjeeling after December means that the hotel tariffs are going to fall, and reaching Darjeeling from the plains by a taxi could cost you less. But remember that most restaurants and bars close early during the winter months.

Tawang

You can expect an absolutely fascinating winter in Tawang, as it could snow during this time of the year. Once again, you are in for some luck, as this time hotels offer rooms at a cheaper rate. Tawang is, of course, a beautiful place, located in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, and it has so many beautiful attractions that this destination is hard to miss. One of the most important destinations here is the Tawang Monastery.

Mussoorie

A beautiful destination in the state of Uttarakhand, Mussoorie can get really cold during the winter months. During the offseason, which is December end to February, you will get the best deals here. Also, this is the time when there are very few tourists here in Mussoorie, and so you will find yourself amidst absolute peace. The imposing snow-clad Himalayan range in the backdrop makes for the perfect picture.

Gangtok

Less cold than Darjeeling, Gangtok is still quite chilly during the off seasons. So you can visit Gangtok during this time, end of December for an incredible New Year and pay half the price at the same time. Gangtok during the winter months attracts very few tourists, mainly because it is very cold. Also, you might not be able to visit all the attractions in the higher parts of Sikkim due to snowfall.
