Winter is a season of melancholic bliss when the world around us transforms into a picturesque landscape. The cold air bites at the tips of our noses and brings out the color in our cheeks. The sun glitters off surfaces on a much shorter day than usual. And this whole experience is magnified in Indore. The otherwise bustling city turns into a wonderland during the winter season, reminding you of the simple pleasures of life. 

You will be surprised to know that most tourists visit Indore from October to February. The pleasant temperature can be anywhere between 8 to 30 degrees Celsius. Frequent travelers say that this is the apt time to visit the city. Because during the summers, the place is scorching hot and you can’t move from spot to spot without feeling dehydrated and sunburnt. 

The tourist attractions in Indore will receive a natural makeover during the chilly days. It is a worthwhile experience to explore the city when you can get to see the same places through a better lens. So, once you decide on your winter vacation dates, book your rooms with Treebo Hotels in Indore, as they are the best low-cost options in the commercial city. 

There are a lot of fun things to do in and around Indore during the winter months. Just that you will have to invest in some warm clothes before heading out.

  1. Go sight-seeing in Mandu

Mandu is a fortress town that is located about 100 Km away from Indore. If you are in Indore during the winter months, you should not miss out on visiting this place. It is a roughly two-hour drive with satisfying views and plush greenery. The culturally rich city has royal mahals, forts, tombs, and other 16th Century architectural wonders. It takes about a day to cover all of them, click some pictures, and know a thing or two about their history. It is a good decision to visit Mandu in the winter months because of the tolerable climate. Otherwise, the tourist places are too wide open to give you protection from the glaring sun. The winter brings out the natural charm of the place and magnifies its beauty by several folds. 

  1. Enjoy the hot and savory street food

You must already know that Indore is the Food Capital of India. It offers some of the finest sweets and snacks for its visitors. Tourists enjoy their time in Sarafa Bazaar, Chappan Dukaan, and other restaurants, tasting different dishes. In winter, these hot and luscious culinary delights call out to your soul! Imagine wearing your woollen clothes, sitting on a bench, and biting on a hot piece of gulab jamun. Or you can take a stroll down the food streets, and pick piping hot Kachori with mint chutney. Did that make your mouth water yet? It is a very thrilling experience to bite on something hot and tasty in the chilly weather. A good glass of badam milk can make you sigh with relief. There are several such options in Indore that you can explore and dig your teeth into. 

  1. Hike up to Patalpani Waterfall

The Patalpani waterfalls have a better flow during the winter season. The water flow is very minimal during the summer. The recovery happens during the monsoons but it’s not safe to hike on the slippery path. But during the winter days, yes! You can go uphill while looking at the alluring view of the valley. Once you reach the waterfall, it is enthusiastically cascading down. If the cold doesn’t bother you like it doesn’t bother Disney’s Elsa, you can go take a dip too! You can also indulge in adventurous activities like rappelling and rock climbing as long as you have a trained professional to supervise you. 

  1. A getaway to Ralamandal Wildlife Sanctuary

The wildlife sanctuary is surrounded by a canopy of trees during the winter months. It is much more likely that you’d see some wild animals taking a casual stroll then. And why is that? Because the dense forest makes it unlikely for them to figure out that there is a separate jeep path in their abode. They’d walk around like they own the place which I suppose they do. The sanctuary is peaceful and painted green during the winter months. However, you have to be a little careful about insects and bugs because they thrive in the moist conditions. 

  1. Visit to the Kanch Mandir

This place is entirely made of reflective glass and mirrors. When you visit the Kanch Mandir in the winter months, it feels like the clear glass, mirrors, and sunlight are playing with each other. When the light hits the walls and pillars in the morning, it shines like orange balls with studded stones here and there. In the afternoon, it is vibrant yellow like the sunflowers. In the evenings, the setting sun is responsible for the mesmerizing deep saffron tinge to the place. And it is all nature’s doing and the great vision of its creator – Seth Hukumchand Jain. 

  1. Enjoy the Scenery at Gomatgiri

Gomatgiri is a religious place of significance for the Jain Community. It is the Sanctum Sanctorum for Lord Gomateshwara aka Bahubali and his 21 feet statue stands proudly here. It is a hilltop shrine that gives you a panoramic view of the Indore city. The altitude makes the place cooler and more pleasant, throughout the year. The best time to visit the place is the mornings when the light seems to shine brighter. There is a museum that displays the rich history of Jainism and the stories involving Gomateshwara. 

  1. Explore the city while cycling

There are cycling tracks within the city where you can ride away either on your own bike or a rented one. If you want to enjoy the greenery, it is a great option to go for the cycling track in Pipliyapala Regional Park. You can go around the lake, and fountain, and enjoy being in the lap of nature. On the other hand, there is Bhawarkuan Square. It is a very happening area with a dedicated cycling route. While on your bike, you can wave some quick ‘Hellos’ to the locals. But if you want to go away from the crowd on a long cycling session, we suggest that you choose the Super Corridor. It is a well-constructed road with a cycling track that connects the Indore city with the Airport. It is a longer route than the rest and away from the heart of the city. 

  1. Cozy picnic at the Choral Dam

The Choral Dam is a one-and-a-half-hour drive from Indore. It gives you an opportunity to gaze at the birds, flapping their wings in sync. You can arrange for a mini-picnic, getting your own flask of masala chai or hot chocolate. Tourists also rent boats and go around paddling on the waters. There are pavements where you can walk, breathe in the fresh air, or simply rest and close your eyes for a minute. It is a great way to relax your mind and shrug off the burden. 

In the comfy winter months, Treebo Hotels in Indore have special offers that can further slash the prices and bring you the best accommodation at a low price. You will also be bestowed with advantages like – 

  • Hygienic rooms that are sanitized and have fresh linen and washed towels.
