What are some places to enjoy snowfall in India?
It’s that time of the year when mountain areas in north India turn into a white wonderland. As you plan your year end trip, here are some places in India where you can experience snowfall, along with all that you can do there:
Mashobra, Himachal Pradesh: While it is only 12 km away from Shimla, the tranquillity of this offbeat locale makes it ideal for those who wish to stay away from crowded areas. Besides playing in the snow, you can go for day trips to Shimla and Fagu, enjoy Nature walks and bird watching, or indulge in winter sports in Kufri.
Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand: A pristine area in Kumaon, Mukteshwar has a dense forest on the one hand and a 180-degree view of the mighty Himalayas on the other. It offers an uninterrupted view of the Nanda Devi, Trishul, Panchachuli, Nanda Kot and Nanda Ghunti ranges.
Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh: No other mountain destination in the state comes close to this in terms of food tourism. Take a day trip to Bir Billing for paragliding, or trek to Triund to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Dhauladhar range.
Gulmarg, Jammu and Kashmir: One of the best skiing destinations in the world, Gulmarg is an adventure lover’s paradise. When here, you must opt for Phase 2 of the Gondola ride, which takes you to the Apharwat peak at 4,200m for an unparalleled view of the mountains.
