2020 is about to end and there is no better way to applaud yourself for surviving this year than a trip to one of the snow valleys in India. A picturesque view, the warmth of chai, survival instincts with Maggi, and your gang is all that’s needed to do away with the lockdown vibes.
Here are some economical and accessible options for snow valleys in India:
Lakes rented bikes, and snow-clad mountains – Spiti is one of the perfect snow valleys in India. At an altitude of 12,500 feet above sea level, you can explore traces of the Buddhist culture through monasteries during various treks. According to the trek of your choice, you can take your pick from the array of resorts in Kaza, Spiti’s capital. Some of the most preferred destinations include Kibber mountain rope, Spiti Lake, and Dhankar Lake.
Jai Bhole! Camping, trekking, or unwinding, Parvati valley is the most suitable trip destination for every boundless soul. Located in Himachal Pradesh, the valley offers stunning views of mountains and greens through hidden cafes. While the adventurous ones can head to Manikaran or Kheerganga for snow, lazy ones can ‘chill’ in Kasol or Tosh.
Another gem in Himachal Pradesh, Tirthan Valley is the perfect weekend getaway for people located in or around Delhi. Relatively unexplored and inhabited by a few, the explorer in you can enjoy lakes, trekking, waterfalls, and crazy stories of the temples with a high probability of snowfall. Resorts with landscape views of the valley are available at economical prices.
An unexplored snow valley in India, Zanskar Valley is the right place for offbeat travelers. Located in Ladakh, Chadar Trek is the only way to reach the valley, but it is considered to be one of the toughest treks in the country with -10 degree temperature. However, if you are up for an adventure, the rewards include the frozen Zanskar River, Phuktal Monastery, and Zangla village.
There’s nearly no restriction or mandatory protocol while traveling to any of the mentioned valleys. However, we urge you to take all necessary precautions for the pandemic along with your zero-degree jacket and snow boots.
