Gaze At the Heavenly Charming Snow in Beautiful Himachal Pradesh
How does it feel when you find your friends enjoying the beauty of snowflakes and you are sitting back in your office doing all the work you actually hate? I really feel pity for such people as they don’t get time to enjoy their lives and are not aspired to see the world in this one small life. Well, if you shall ask me the same question – whether I would choose to stay back in my office or take myself out to such heavenly locations, indeed the second choice is the best one to choose. Till now, my favorite location has been the lovely state of Himachal Pradesh. I visit here during the winters especially when the whole city is covered with the beautiful snowflakes and you can see the real heaven on the earth. Even during these days when the city is covered with snow, this whole scene has turned everything extremely thrilling. People are coming here to witness and capture the moments when their surrounding gets painted with a pure white shade within a few minutes.
According to the sources, this year, the state has received heavy snowfall and almost all the districts of HP are covered with the white sheet. This factor has convinced many people to celebrate their new year here. The Metrological department has briefed that the moth of January will bring the coldest season of this decade. So, it will be an amazing experience to visit here when the mercury has dipped to minus.
Now let’s discuss the routes that will help you explore the real beauty of this snow-clad city.
Shimla to Kufri to Chail
Known as the queen of hills, Shimla is a small yet attractive tourist spot that allures a huge number of visitors every year. The snow cover roofs and aromatic deodar give an ultimate feeling with Kufri just 18 kilometers ahead. This place is quite famous for skiing and people come here to enjoy this winter sports activity. Moving ahead of Kufri, you will reach Chail which is again a famous place for visitors. You have to cover up a distance of approximately 27 km and there you reach – Chail. You will find snow everywhere and amazing green trees that give a unique look to the entire surroundings.
Manali to the Valley of Solang
We all have heard about the beauty of Manali but in winters this town turns all white and gives a delightful experience to the people who visit here. The snow received by this place is fluffy in texture that makes it look extra alluring. One of the important factors that convince people to come here is that 14 km ahead of this place, you will be in Solang Valley which is famous for all the interesting winter sports activities. The visitors can enjoy zorbing, ice skating, and skiing. There is a cable car facility to let people take a magnificent ride to the snow point. The expected lowest temperature of Solang Valley is -6 to -9degree Celsius
Mcleodganj and Dharamshala
A favorite destination for the honeymooners, this place is extremely beautiful and has a lot of sightseeing places where you can go and enjoy your time. During winters the atmosphere here is chilling and the breeze is full of romantic waves. Moving 10 km ahead of Dharamshala, Mcleodganj also receives a significant amount of snowfall making people fall for this place again and again. Apart from this, you can have a good shopping time as there are so many shops that help people buy a lot of antique and other beautiful items at affordable rates.
However, despite the fact that Himachal Pradesh is an iconic city for those who love snow, this place also comes with a certain preventive measure that people need to follow especially when they have small toddlers and old aged people with them. The weather here can change drastically and maybe the very next day you will find yourself engulfed in the high snow bars. So, you have to act smart and be careful regarding all the below mentioned things:
As you know that exposing yourself to extreme cold temperature can be the reason of frostbites and hypothermia, so, pack your woolens according to that. You can choose the fur jackets that prevent cold waves to entire inside. You can bring the same for your kids as the toddlers are extremely vulnerable to such atmospheric conditions.
Keep checking the body temperature of your kids and senior citizens and engage them with some light physical movements so that the body can maintain the warm temperature. However, if the kids are going for outdoor activities, supervise that with safety checks.
During your entire trip, eat healthily and don’t forget to take fruits and vegetables.
Make proper use of all the safety gears that are used while you go outside to play the winter sports. Mishandling can lead to serious injuries.
Apart from this, if you find any of the following symptoms in your kids, rush to the nearby medical facility:
A severe cough with vomiting
Trouble in breathing, causing the toddler to wheeze or take small breaths
Puffed sounds during sleep or even subsequent to coughing
Chest pain due to inflammation in lungs due to respiratory infection
Running nose, high fever, headache & fatigue
