Top 3 Winter Destinations

Winter is coming, and everything starts to look a bit grey and gloomy. The forgotten feeling of gentle sunshine’s touch on the skin makes us dream of places with soft climates, gentle breezes, warm seas or majestic mountains and valleys. To bear the seasonal melancholy, just pick your dream destination carefully to be sure you get the weather you expect and enjoy summer in the middle of grim winter. Here are three best winter destinations, according to our opinion, that will help you to prevent winter blues and feel happy and relaxed. 

1. In general, there are two preferred times of year to visit Nepal. Peak season, particularly for trekking in Nepal, is from late September to early December when the air is fresh and the sky is clear, giving the best views of the mountains. From the end of February to mid-April, it is warm and dry. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Chitwan and Bardia National Parks to admire the blooming rhododendrons, the symbol of Nepal. It is also possible to visit Nepal in January and February, but you should be prepared for very cold nights. It's a good time, though, to trek around the rim of the Kathmandu Valley comprising the three ancient cities of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. The three cities house seven UNESCO World Heritage shrines, which are together listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The valley is also home to hundreds of other exquisite monuments, sculptures, artistic temples and magnificent art – reminders of the golden era in Nepal’s architecture.

2. The months of November to January are perfect to visit Cambodia, a wonderful winter destination with its balmy climate, white-sand beaches, ancient temples, relaxing offshore islands, forest-clad hills and impenetrable jungle. If you want to have not only relaxing, but also cultural experiences while you stay in Cambodia, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Angkor, situated between Tonle Sap Lake and the Kulen Mountains. It is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia, containing the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th centuries. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

3. Straddling the line between East and West, Turkey is an up-and-coming destination for travelers. Istanbul is not the only destination that might attract you in Turkey. Just imagine mesmerising Medieval churches cut into the rocks and painted with extraordinary bright colors, extraordinary “fairy chimney” pinnacles of rock with capstones perched on top of them and deep gorges with streams meandering between shady poplar trees. This is Cappadocia, the dreamy slice of central Turkey. You can take a Jeep drive trip into the Toros Mountains or make a sunrise balloon safari above the eroded volcanic terrain of Cappadocia and enjoy the beauty of the passage.
