It’s usually suggested to stay away from these areas during India’s busiest winter season because winter wreaks havoc there every year.

Winter may be the best time to visit some locations, but not all.

Here is our list of a few locations that, in order to prevent any catastrophes, you shouldn’t plan to visit from November until the middle of February.


Since the temple opens in May after receiving a considerable amount of heavy snowfall, it is the most popular tourist attraction during the summer. And a month later, it closes once more because of persistent rain. Unpredictable rainstorms might cause a landslide at the Kedarnath shrine and ultimately force transportation to the mountain’s summit. That’s why it is advisable that you should visit Kedarnath during the summer season and avoid winters.


The elevation of Srinagar is 1,585 meters. This stunning city, which is situated along the banks of the Jhelum river, is well-known for its culture and natural beauty.

Many well-known mosques and temples can be found in Srinagar, including the congregational mosque Jamia Masjid, which dates back to the 15th century. It is regarded as Kashmir’s biggest mosque. The charming town of Gulmarg, which is close to Kashmir, provides magnificent views of the Vale of Kashmir and of Nanga Parbat, one of the highest peaks in the Himalayas.

Leh Ladakh

Leh is a very well-liked vacation spot. The area is quite culturally and historically rich. In the summer, the temperature rises to 7°C.
