For many of us, winters are the epitome of seasonal comfort. Everything is calm, slow moving and relaxing. The joy of just curling up in your blanket with your favourite book and sipping on hot chocolate is pretty much unmatched.

However, winters in the city can tend to take a toll on you. Things start to get monotonous and you just need a break from it all, sometimes even from the harsh cold. With that in mind, we've curated a list of the places that you need to visit if you want to make the best of winter holidays.

Chokhi Dhani

Since the place is just a short drive away, Chokhi Dhani isn't exactly 'getting out of the city', but it still has an otherworldly vibe to it. Here, you can stay in a rural Rajasthani setting and munch on soul warming food straight from the desert state of India. The vibes here make you forget that the winters are on in full swing and offer a much needed break from everyday city life. Need we say more?

Lakshadweep Islands

To visit Lakshadweep islands, you'll need to plan ahead, but it's all going to be completely worth it. The Islands are serene and almost untouched by the industrial hand of man. They help you get in touch with nature and the best part is that you get to bask along the white shores of the Arabian sea, while watching the sun set over the shimmering crystal clear sea. It is truly a sight to behold and if you're one who can't handle the winters, then a trip here is worthwhile.

Gulawat

Coming back closer to home, you can quench your thirst for mesmerizing flora at Gulawat, which is a place just a short drive from Indore. Here, the Lotus Lake is the main attraction and it is certainly one place that lets you experience something breathtaking. During the winters, everything is just perfect and we can say the same for the lotus lake as well. Apart from that, Gulawat is a quaint little place that helps you relax and take a break from your hectic lifestyle.

Hanumantiya Island

Another island makes its way on to our list, solely because of the fact that the warm rays of the sun wash over you, providing some much needed comfort. The place is truly a spectacle of nature and though you're not exactly surrounded by the open sea, the experience of being out in the open, and taking in the sun rays is quite cathartic. The winters are often murky and dull, but when the sun is out at Hanumantiya Island, all is good.

Omkareshwar

This sacred island nestled on the banks of the Narmada River is a must visit this winter. A predominantly temple town, the hidden gem has an aura of its own. Come winters or summers, the place is always sunny and manages to engulf you in a warm embrace as soon as you enter. There are loads of fun activities to do here as well, so you could plan to make a day or two out of the trip.

Knock Knock

As far as winters in Indore are considered, you don't really have much to worry about. The cold season isn't all that harsh in Indore, but sometimes, you just need to get out of the town. In that case, we suggest that you head over to one of these places and ditch the duvets while you're at it.
