Why go on an international trip and empty your hard earned money to watch the snowfall and play in the ice when you are blessed with ample opportunities and heavenly abodes to experience the same thrill and fun with half the budget well within the country??

Sitting at an altitude of 4170 mts above the sea, it experiences chilled winters with extreme snowfalls, is greatly loved and admired by snow lovers, naturists and also trekkers.
