COLDEST PLACES IN INDIA TO ESCAPE THE SUMMER HEAT

India is hardly the first place to come to mind when one thinks about cold
countries with snowfall or frostbite inducing temperatures. However, what many
forget is that the Indian subcontinent is home to the largest percentage of the
The Himalayas, the tallest mountain range in the world. And when it comes to icy cold
destinations, what India lacks in terms of proximity to the poles, it easily makes
up for through its peaks and high altitude hill stations. Here are some of the
coldest places in the country.

ROHTANG PASS, MANALI

We all have visited Manali in our summer vacation but what really deserves a
visit Rohtang Pass which connects Kullu valley with Lahaul and Spiti valley.
It is located at an altitude of 3,978 m and snow-clad in the most picturesque
way almost throughout the year. Especially since it is a tourist destination, it is
widely regarded as one of the coldest places in India and it is infamous for
unforeseen snowstorms and blizzards. The coldest months are December and
January. In these months, on an average, the temperatures can dip down to
around -5 0 C to -6 0 C.

TAWANG

Arunachal Pradesh’s quiet and sleepy town of Tawang has become an important
tourist destination in recent years. Known for its winding streams, natural beauty
, and local Tibetan culture, Tawang is often counted among some of the best
offbeat travel destinations to visit. While climatic conditions are pleasant during
the summers, with the average temperature hovering around 10 0 C, the winters
here can get extremely cold, with temperatures dipping to -15 0 C. The town and its
surrounding regions also experience snowfall during the winter.

KALPA, HIMACHAL PRADESH

Kalpa, the main village of Kinnaur, in the Sutlej River Valley is a place to
remember and cherish. Known for its many beautiful temples and
monasteries, this town is also famed for its apple orchards. The majestic

Kinnaur-Kailash range peeking from across the Sutlej River makes for a blissful
break.

The lowest temperature recorded in Kalpa in recent years was -15°C making it
one of the coldest places in India.

SONAMARG

Sonamarg is one of Kashmir’s most popular tourist destinations. Although it
draws the most number of tourists in the summer, it can be very inhospitable in
the winter. Known for its proximity to the famous temple of Amarnath, Sonamarg
is surrounded by the mountain peaks of northern Himalayas and is located at an
elevation of more than 2,800 m. The town sees an above-average amount of
snowfall and temperatures in the winter months of December and January can
fall to -6 0 C.

HEMKUND SAHIB

Hemkund Sahib, also known as Gurudwara Sri Hemkund Sahib Ji is a Sikh
pilgrimage located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The place adorned
by a glacial lake is surrounded by seven snow-clad peaks, each bearing a
Nishan Sahib. At an astounding altitude of 4,362 m, Hemkund Sahib attracts a
great number of tourists every trekking season. It is only accessible during
summer as it is totally snowbound during the winter season. During the
coldest months, the temperatures can dip to as low as -10°C to -11°C.
