Although, January is the best time to visit India, you might face some
problem. The terrain is varied and sometimes very challenging. Another big
problem of this time is, sometimes the northern part of India is totally
covered under a thick layer of fog and mist, preventing the airlines,
railways and roadways operate properly. The climate is extremely chilling at
the higher altitudes. Cold wave blows through out north India, jeopardizing
the life there. The weather is dry during the month of January.
Stay away from the cold waves, as it might make you fall on your back for
days. Carry proper winter accessories and clothes to beat the chill. Wear
heavy warm clothes during your tours to the high altitude zones, as the
northern India is extremely chilling in the month of January. Also apply
good quantity of mousturizer daily after bath to avoid the dryness. Be aware
of the weather conditions before starting your trip, as generally the
atmosphere is foggy and the sky is not clear during this month, leading to
traffic jams and flight & train cancellations.
