6 best places to visit in India this October

October marks the beginning of diving season in the Andamans. Head to Havelock Island or Swaraj Dweep for diving expeditions from Radhanagar Beach or Turtle beach. Visibility is typically great this time of year and you can spot beautiful coral reefs and fascinating marine life. Water babies will also enjoy intertidal walks at Radhanagar beach—zones of water so clear that you can spot otherwise hidden marine animals in them. If you want to go beyond the well-explored Havelock, there’s a lot to see and do in Little Andaman Island, Cinque Island and Barren Island.

Panna National Park is known for its tiger reserve, but the birds are a huge draw here too. The park is a birdwatcher’s paradise, with over 200 species of avifauna. Visit early in the morning to hear nothing but birdsong and spot the Asian paradise flycatcher, painted sandgrouse, honey buzzard, blossom headed parakeet and more. As the sun goes down at the end of the day, you can even spot vultures—the park is known to be a breeding ground for the endangered birds of prey. Winter also brings a host of migratory birds to the park, and as the temperatures drop in October, you might just catch sight of some.

Start your day at the crack of dawn with Khasi music and folk songs, and at midnight, enjoy the exquisite sounds of the Sindhi sarangi and alghoza at Rao Jodha Park. Explore the majestic Mehrangarh Fort and the markets in the old town and stroll through the narrow streets of the city, lined with blue-walled houses.
