Best 23 Places Perfect To Visit For Your Winter Holiday Escape In India

When winter approaches, schools and offices announce long winter breaks. This is the best time to go holidaying to different spectacular places in India with your entire family. And what better way to plan a holiday than to take up a personal loan for travel?

Once you take up a personal loan for a holiday, you need not worry about the expenses of staying, travelling, adventuring, purchasing outfits, and bringing back gifts.

List of 23 Winter Destinations In India:

1. Gulmarg


When it’s winter around, there is no better choice of destination than Kashmir. Its beautiful valleys and snow-covered mountains make sunrises and sunsets more astounding than ever. You can go skiing and cable riding on the snow.
