Snow is one thing India has plenty of. The country is home to some of the highest snow-capped peaks in the world, including Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, Nanda Devi, Chaukhamba, and Ladakh. While skiing might not be a top choice for winter activities in India, there are plenty of snow hikes you can take if you’re looking to get active this winter. Here’s our list of five best snow treks in India:
Roopkund Trek is a high-altitude trek in the Himalayas. It is located in Uttarakhand and is surrounded by the peaks of Nanda Devi, Trishul, and Bandarpunch. The trek can be done as an overnight trip or extended to include more days depending on your fitness level and desire for adventure!
Pin Bhaba Pass Trek
The Pin Bhaba Pass Trek is one of the most popular treks in India and can be done in any season. It is located in the Kullu Valley, which is known for its snow-clad peaks and striking beauty. This trek offers you a chance to explore some of the most scenic places on earth while experiencing some breathtaking scenery along with it.
The trailhead starts from Manali and takes you up to 10,000 feet above sea level where you’ll find yourself at an elevation of 13,500 feet! You’ll have plenty of time here so make sure that you pack enough food and water before heading out on this adventure!
Spiti To Manali Trek
The Spiti to Manali trek is for those who want to see the Himalayan peaks, but this trek is a challenging one and can be hazardous. You will most likely need a guide for this one because it’s mostly on the Rohtang pass. The trail is mostly through the Lahaul valley, which means that you’ll need to cross rivers and streams along your way.
The best time for this trek would be during the winter months because it’s easier to travel during these months when there are fewer people in general around than at other times of the year due to less sunlight being available during winter months (when compared with summer or spring).
Rupin Pass Trek
Rupin Pass Trek is located in the Garhwal Himalayas. This trek will take you through dense forests, snow-covered mountains, and passes that are covered with snow all year long. The Rupin Pass Trek is a challenging trek that requires trekking experience to complete successfully. The best time to go on this trip would be from May to September when there is no snowfall.
This route begins from Anandpur Sahib en route to Mana Village (2 days). From Mana Village, you can take either a jeep or bus for another day’s journey until Pauri town where there are many hotels and lodges available for accommodation purposes; you can also stay at one of these places if you wish so as not to have any difficulty while traveling during the winter season when roads get blocked due to heavy rains
Chopta Chandrashila Trek
The Chopta Chandrashila Trek is a round-trip from Chopta to Chandrashila. It is relatively easy and takes about 4 days to complete, but you can do it in winter if you’re up for it.
This trek has no technical challenges, which makes it a good option for beginners who are looking for an easy trek in their first few months of trip planning.
Go on a snow trek this winter!
If you’re looking for a winter adventure, look no further than the snow trek. These treks are perfect for those who want to get out and explore while they still have access to outdoor activities.
Go with a group of friends. It’s easier to socialize when you’re surrounded by people who make your trip more fun!
Plan ahead. Make sure that all members of your party have adequate equipment (including boots) before heading out into the cold weather conditions; if not, then plan so that everyone can buy their gear once they arrive at their destination.
Bring warm clothes: You’ll need layers under your down jacket or sweater so that no matter how cold it gets during or after going on this type of activity (depending on what kind), there won’t be any danger of getting frostbite from walking barefoot through snow drifts up mountainsides covered in ice crystals during winter months here in India where temperatures tend toward freezing levels most days between November-February every year because we’re located near one endpoint along India’s western coast which faces very powerful winds coming off oceans near Asia’s southern continent which prevents sunrays from reaching us directly causing long periods without warmth making life difficult sometimes even though India has many other ways besides tourism like agriculture production industries, etc…
