The days are getting cooler and we're getting more and more thankful for the morning sun as winter progresses here in India. This is the best time of the year to head out on your corporate retreat! Confused about where to go? Here are some of our favorite winter destinations for you to explore with your team:
Goa: Peak season in Goa makes the beach destination come alive. Lively crowds throng the beaches, while the weather's perfect to spend all day lazing on the beach. Sample fresh seafood, sign up for water sports and adventure activities, plan a trek into the nearby forests and waterfalls, and dance the nights away!
Agra: Taj Mahal's home is one of the best winter getaways in India. The weather's fine enough for you to spend the entire day exploring the fine monument and fall in love with its ethereal beauty. Make time for other monuments nearby like the Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri too.
Shillong: This jewel in the Northeast is known as Scotland of the East with scenic beauty that will make you feel like you've stepped into a painting. Watch the town come alive during Christmas, go trekking through forest trails along waterfalls, take boat rides on the Umiam Lake and unwind completely in its serenity.
Kerala: Like Goa, winter is one of the best times to head to God's Own Country, when the lush greenery comes alive after recent monsoons and the humidity is lower too. From the houseboats on backwaters at Alleppey and Kumarakom to beaches in Fort Kochi and Kovalam, there's so much to explore at Kerala. And don't miss some of the finest and healthiest regional cuisines to keep your team satiated throughout your trip.
Shimla: This popular hill station is known most for its Victorian architecture and colonial heritage. Although the cold is biting, this hill station really comes alive after snowfall in winters. Check out the winter carnival, take a toy train ride to enjoy the scenic beauty of snow-covered slopes, and go skiing with your team.
