Illuminate the winter with Diwali
The last three months of the year are an exquisite time to visit the shimmering country of India. Colours and lights fill the air with the famous Hindu festival of Diwali. Flickering diyas (oil lamps) twinkle like stars on the surface of the Ganges and cities are incandescent. After the festivities, head to the Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur and visit the forts, temples and palaces there. At this time of year, it is cooler, making these visits more pleasant at any time of day. For adrenalin seekers, this is also an excellent time of year for tiger spotting in the jungles of Kanha National Park or Bandhavgarh, home to India’s highest density of tiger.
