Best Places to See Snowfall in Uttarakhand

Phew, summer's over! We were all counting down the days until winter finally arrived in our country so that we might bask in its comforting chill. You've gotten your sweaters, mufflers, and jackets out of storage and are looking for the most efficient way to wear them. However, we're aware that not everything in India has the ideal winter climate. Of course, a snowfall is essential to a proper winter.
