If you are looking for a reason to visit the hills, here is the perfect reason for you. The season’s first snowfall was experienced over the weekend in Jammu & Kashmir. It is after 20 years now that such snowfall has been witnessed in India in November itself. Though it caused a bit of a hassle for the residents and tourists in Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh, if planned well, one can easily visit these places to experience the snowfall this weekend.
With temperatures dipping drastically to -3 and -4 degree Celsius, winter has knocked the doors in India after yesterday’s snowfall. In Jammu & Kashmir, Srinagar has witnessed the highest amount of snowfall and for tourists urging to enjoy peak winter, planning a trip to Srinagar now would be a good idea.
Shimla accounts for a large pocket of tourists from India and abroad alike and witnessing snowfall in Shimla in this month or week rather could create memories for life. Think, snow clad mountains, with snow gushing through the winds, and the wintery breeze setting in. Sounds Christmas like, doesn’t it? Post the Diwali frenzy, this weekend you could unwind in Shimla and play snow fight or dance in the snow.
