Here is a list of some of the best places to visit in India in November. November is considered the ideal month for a nice holiday all through India. By this month, Monsoon has already bid goodbye to most of the parts in the country adding to the beauty of many scenic places. This month offers a cool and tranquil environment for enthusiastic travellers and is also a time for many festivals and fairs in the country. November is also the month for all kinds of tourist activities, especially for bird watching and enjoying the nature's gift of panoramic views.

Chakrata- The Virgin Hills

Glorious as heaven itself must be, Chakrata Hills in Uttaranchal is a quaint protected cantonment area blessed with incredible natural beauty. It still remains an unexplored hill station in Uttaranchal. November is the best season to spend mesmerizing moments in the majestic green lawns and hilly terrains, before the extreme cold winter period commences. The town has a magnificent view of the Greater Himalayas and most hotels you stay at opens you to the window of this spectacular view. Everything surrounding you is delightfully green--Deodar, Himalayan oak and Rhododendron covers the hills.

Tiger Falls, situated at 312 ft, is the second highest waterfall in India and is a pleasant and beautiful 5 km walk away. Take in the picturesque views of Bandarpoonch Massif and the Sarga & Rohini peaks, among others, from Chirmiri Neck. Short drives in any direction will bring you to terrific Jaunsari locations and Deoban.The sloppy regions of Chakrata are renowned for trekking and skiing. Enjoy the grandeur and natural beauty in November with trekking expeditions.

Varanasi- The City Of Shiva

This holy city is where Lord Shiva is believed to have made his permanent home on earth. November is a good time to visit it. There are many important places to visit in Varanasi. The ghats, literally flights of steps but are more like a theatre of life, stretch continually along the riverfront. The evening aarti at the Ganga ghats is an unforgettable experience and something which will surely stay with you for a lifetime.

The Ganga Mahotsav, celebrated in November with festivities and religious rituals, is a major attraction in Varanasi. At this occasion, pilgrims celebrate the event by performing Indian classical style music and dance shows. Classical music performed by the great maestros like Birju Maharaj, Ustad Bismillah Khan really adds an unforgettable flavour to the environment, making it one of the best places to visit in November in India.

The cool atmosphere and clear sky encourages tourists to carry out various outdoor activities and temple visits during this season. Take a holy dip in Ganges and get yourself sanctified. Varanasi is a city where life is celebrated and death is not denied; it welcomes tourists from all over the corners of the world.

Port Blair-Pristine Waters and Serene Scenic Views

The main entry point into the Andaman Islands, Port Blair is a famous tourist destination. Most tourists make the trip to see the historic Cellular Jail where Indian prisoners were housed by the then British government. Do visit the Chidiya Tapu in Port Blair, which has some of the most interesting museums related to the island and its history.

There are many things to do in Port Blair. For adventure junkies, the Rajiv Gandhi Waters Sports Complex has enough tricks up their sleeves to keep them happily occupied. Don't forget to visit the Chatham Island near Port Blair, Andaman Islands!

Jodhpur-The Blue City

Jodhpur in Rajasthan is one of the best places to visit in November. The weather is also moderate than any of the other months when it's blazing hot. Some of the best places to explore here are Mehrangarh Fort and Umaid Bhawan Palace. If you are a shopaholic, the area surrounding the fort is full of small shops which sell local handicrafts. Leather goods and bright bandhini chunnis from Jodhpur are a must-buy. For those who have a sweet tooth, Jodhpur Sweets is a must visit and their pyaaz and mirchi pakodas are to die for!

New Delhi-A Tale Of 2 Cities

New Delhi is one of the best places to visit in November in India as the weather is perfect for exploring the architectural and cultural heritage of the city. For the history buffs, there is no dearth of historical monuments to explore. The Red Fort , Qutub Minar, Safdarjung’s Tomb, Nizamuddin Dargah and Humayun Tomb are at their best in the benign November sun. There are numerous places to eat in Delhi, especially the spicy and sumptuous street food. The variety of street food in Delhi is enough to whet the appetite of the die-hard foodies.

Places like Connaught Place, Delhi Haat etc. are ideal to find handicrafts from all over India in one place. You can also find the trendiest clothes at the cheapest prices in markets like Lajpat Nagar, Janpath and Sarojini Nagar. So take yourself off to New Delhi and enjoy the Capital in all its glorious Dilli ki Sardi!

Hampi- City of Stones

Explore the ruins and mammoth boulders of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hampi. This 16 CE capital of the Vijayanagara Kingdom lies on the bank of Tungabhadra River, also known as Pampa. The ruins of this ancient city of Hampi in Karnataka are strikingly and spectacularly beautiful.

Apart from its historical significance, Hampi is also a revered religious spot; it is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Hanuman. Since Hampi is best explored on foot or on bike, it's one of the best places to visit in November in India.

The diversity of India still manages to astonish us--the landscapes, the weather patterns, the history and stories, the festivals, different cuisines to taste and the several ways of finding spiritual sustenance. All these destinations are some of the best places to visit in November in India. There is no common theme to bind all of these places, except perhaps the diversity itself.

I doubt that Rohtang Pass remains open in the month of November and not going to Rohtang pass when in Manali is such a drawback.
