Winter is the best time to visit Dharamshala

“The ‘Winter Capital of Himachal Pradesh’ is a title given to Dharamshala. The reason for this is because Dharamshala is at its most beautiful self in winters. During this season, the city comes truly alive. With snowscapes all around. Cloudy skies and temperatures dropping. For winter lovers and snow enthusiasts, this is nothing short of winter heaven right here on earth.

There is a magical element attached to snow. That instantly brings a smile on the face of a child or an adult. In short, snow makes everyone happy. For adventure seekers, who are looking for activities in the snow, besides having snowball fights, can opt for snow hikes, snow walks, and snow treks.

The most loved experiential activity is snow-trek. Snow-treks or winter treks, are an adventure itself. If planned and executed in a systematic manner, they can be exhilarating and fun. For a well-planned snow trek, it is crucial to hire a guide. An unplanned trek can lead to dangerous and unpredictable results. That is why for any snow-trek it is recommended that trekkers, whether first-timers or experienced ones, hire a guide for the trek. The whole experience becomes convenient, stress-free, and smoother.
