Best time to enjoy snow covered places in Uttarakhand


If you want to experience the fun of playing with the snowballs or descending on the slopes of the snow covered mountain on a sledge, then visit Uttarakhand, where snow laden mountains and valleys are waiting for the visitors. Kumaon region of this state has many such places to explore during winter.

It’s a pleasure to visit this region during the months of December to March. If you are travelling from Delhi then at around a distance of three to four hundred km places like Nainital, Ramgarh Kasauni and Mukteshwar are the best to enjoy your holidays in the explicit surroundings and natural beauty of the Himalayan ranges. Kumaon region is popular for its snow capped peaks, and streams rising from heights in the mountains and descending the slopes. Nainital is one such popular place which offers splendid views of tall mountain peaks, icy rivers and bulgy waterfalls jumping from great heights.

Many exclusive activities like taking a ropeway to snow view point, circling the lake on a cycle, trekking, sailing and paragliding can be enjoyed here. Ride a boat in the beautiful Naini Lake to get some awesome views of the nearby snow capped mountains.
