To turn your regular trip into a new discovery that you’ve been longing for since long, here is a list of 6 places to visit this winter in India.
1. Solang Valley, Himachal Pradesh
The winter paradise of Manali also known as Solang Nala, high altitude valley that lies at the top of Kullu in the Himachal Pradesh. It features high mountain slopes that turn milky white when it snows. Solang valley has turned into a major ski destination in India being a snowfall prone area.
The cold season starts from October and continues till March, shadowing the entire hill station with mist and snow. The temperature then drops below the freezing point and the mountains get covered in a thick blanket of snow making the place a perfect destination for skiing.
2. Thajiwas Glacier, Jammu & Kashmir
The glacier is a striking silvery scene set against emerald meadows and a clear blue sky. A perfect place to witness the beginning of snowfall when you go for a glacial sighting in this winter wonderland.
The road will be long and the journey hard but the captivating views make it worthwhile. The place drops down to zero levels during this month. Visit the undiscovered Thajiwas glacier to experience sledge rides, snowboarding, and skiing with breathtaking hills on the backdrop.
