Winter is one of the best times of a year, as it provides us with ample opportunities to wrap ourselves in cosy and comfortable blankets and sip our favourite tea or coffee in the comfort of our homes or offices, while the temperatures are still dipping outside. As winter sets in, we start embracing vegetables, fruits, soups and a variety of other delectable items that otherwise never make it to our daily food menu/list. We also find unique ways of experimenting with our winter wardrobe including coats, jackets, sweaters and colourful scarves. Thus, if you’re a winter person and are looking forward to spend a memorable winter vacation, then head straight to these snow filled destinations in India. Why?
The winter season is the perfect time for witnessing snowfall in India and also because during this season the tour/travel rates of holiday packages providers is at its lowest. Read on to find TravelRasoi’s list of the best snow places in India.
