Winter Travel: Who doesn’t enjoy snowfall? If you, too, are looking forward to that beautiful “white winter” holiday, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of some of the top sites in India where you and your spouse may enjoy a fresh snowfall and make the most of the winter season. Let’s take a look at them.
1. Gulmarg (Jammu and Kashmir)
Gulmarg, located in the Pir Panjal Range of the Western Himalayas, is incredibly stunning in the winter. It’s one of the best sites in India to see snowfall, with temperatures dipping to -8 degrees Celsius in December. This year’s winter has already brought happiness to the valley, as travellers from all across the country flock here to see the snow-capped peaks. Skiing is available here, and a wonderful winter festival in the valley.
2. Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh)
If you’re looking for a romantic getaway with your significant other this winter, travel to Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh, for one of the most breathtaking snowfall experiences. For the uninitiated, Tawang is home to one of the world’s largest Buddhist monasteries. The majestic Nuranang falls, tranquil Madhuri Lake, and the Sela Pass is among the greatest spots to visit in Tawang now that they have begun to snow.
3. Manali (Himachal Pradesh)
Manali is one of India’s most popular tourist spots. Visitors flock to this hill station during the winter to see it completely blanketed with snow. The snowcapped mountains and pine trees seem nothing short of stunning with chilly winds, light showers, and heavy snowfall. You can even stay in an igloo here and enjoy every minute of your stay in this highland hideaway.
4. Yumthang (Sikkim)
Have you ever been to this breathtaking location? If you haven’t already, make a note of it on your trip wish list. Snowfall is almost constant in Yumthang, Sikkim, throughout the year. Yumthang is known as the “Valley of Flowers” because it is home to the Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary. 24 types of rhododendron, Sikkim’s state flower, may be found in this sanctuary. Yumthang is known for its frozen lakes, hot springs, grazing yaks, and rolling meadows surrounded by Himalayan mountains. What more could you want? (Don’t forget to bring some winter clothes!)
5. Auli (Uttarakhand)
Auli in Uttarakhand, one of the best destinations for skiing, is an ideal trip destination for adventure seekers. The spectacular peaks of Nanda Devi, Neelkanth, and Mana Parbat, as well as skiing in Auli’s white snow, will make your trip a perfect “paisa-vasool.”
