You can take a bike ride with your bunch to rejoice these locations, most suitable in months from May-September. If you want to catch a glimpse of the frozen lake, November to January is the time to do so.
The most captivating feel-good movies like ‘Roja’, ‘Ye Jawani Hai Deewani’ have been reeled on them. The white snow, ideal weather condition makes it a must on everyone’s travel list. The adventure sports facilities make it perfect for taking a long trip without getting jaded there.
