At the start of 2020, we published a list of 20 Experiences you can get in 2020. This time around we want to highlight 5 travel experiences for each month in this monthly series. As a itinerant traveller these are 5 interesting things to do in India in February for you!
1 Get Spiritual on Maha Shivaratri
February is the month of Lord Shiva. This is the first on our list of things to do in India in February!
Maha Shivratri is celebrated on 21 February 2020 with lot of religious fervour across the country. But if you want to really experience what this means, then head either to Ujjain or Varanasi. Two best places to experience Maha Shivratri in 2020. Have a bhang thandai and sing bhajans through the night in praise of Baba Bholenath!

2 Explore pristine beaches on a Beach Trek
Last chance for doing the beach trek before the start of summer. You can do multi day trek or just do a day trek. The stretch from Gokarana to Byndoor in Coastal Karnataka is best for the trek. You will see pritine and unexplored beaches like Half Moon beach, Paradise beach, Long beach etc……

3 Visit Taj Mahal on a Full Moon day
Anyone who have visited Taj Mahal will come back wowed! It is such a sight to behold. The Taj is best viewed on Full moon day and it is a surreal experience. The February weather is perfect and fog will be less. Make some time to go to Agra and experience Taj like never before!
