Now, what is so special about October? Is it respite from the long water-soaked monsoon-pours; the beginning of autumn; the sight of clear, blue skies or an amazing festive feel in the air. No matter what the reason is, October’s ‘neither too hot nor too cold weather’ is just apt to relish the beauty and charm of few of India’s besties, if not all. Let us take a look at some of the beautiful places that could be a part of your travel plan this October.
