Festivals of the month: January 2020

Many visitors in north India love the downward spiral that the icy winds and biting cold bring in their wake. And why not, that’s what adds to the colour and romance that the festivals lined up at this time of the year bring along. Take a look at some of the most interesting ones we’ve lined up for you.

Sunsplash Music Festival

Goa, Jan 10 – 12
