Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Every winter one of the most common questions many of my friends and relatives ask me is “Brother, can you please tell me some places to see snowfall near Delhi or Snow near Delhi?

Having heard this question so many times, I thought it is better to write down a couple of articles in DoW where I can pen down such places near Delhi to find snowfall or snow. I did write one about places to find snowfall near Delhi in Uttarakhand. I am sure it was helpful to many of you who love snow or snowfall in the Himalayas like anything.

Video: Snowfall Near Delhi – 7 Places to Visit in Himachal

Here is the list of places in Himachal where you can see snow or snowfall near Delhi.

  • Manali – Solang Valley
  • Jalori Pass – Shoja
  • Prashar Lake
  • Hatu Peak – Narkanda – Kufri – Shimla
  • Pabbar Valley
  • Triund near Mcleodganj
  • Khajjiar – Dalhousie

Let’s look at them in detail one by one.

7 places to see snowfall near Delhi in Himachal

By November, winters settle in most parts of the Himalayas like Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Ladakh, Kashmir, etc.. It is also the time that many of the high-altitude places like Leh – Ladakh, Spiti Valley, Lahaul Valley, Pangi Valley, Zanskar Valley, etc.. will go under hibernation for about next 5-6 months.

However, having said that the lower hills of Himachal, Uttarakhand, and Kashmir will still be connected and become the favorite spots for the lovers of the Himalayas. These spots become popular for the ones who are fond of snowfall or snow in particular 🙂 …

In these winter months of late November, December, January, and February, there are many places in Himachal Pradesh where one can see snow or snowfall near Delhi. I will share with you seven places in Himachal to witness snowfall in the coming winters 🙂 🙂 …

By saying “Snowfall Near Delhi,” I mean the places which you can cover in 3 – 5 days from Delhi at max or you can say long weekend trips from Delhi for seeing snowfall or snow. Beyond 3 – 5 days, there are more viable options I believe but let’s know some places in Himachal Pradesh where you can travel over the long weekend from Delhi to see snow or snowfall.

1. Manali – Solang Valley

The perfect place to play with snow or witness snowfall in winter in Himachal is Manali or Solang Valley due to its easy accessibility from Delhi or Chandigarh and the highest probability for a longer duration of availability of snow.

If you happen to have a long weekend, you can take the overnight Volvo to Manali from Delhi or Chandigarh and reach Manali early morning on Friday. Rest the whole day in Manali or Solang Valley; then, on the next day, you can visit snow points near Manali viz. Solang Valley, Gulaba, or Marhi.

The snow points of Gulaba or Marhi have snow almost from mid-November up to late March, and then snow can be found even up to June at Rohtang Pass. If you happen to stay at Solang Valley itself in winter, you may be able to witness snowfall too. Last day you can board the overnight Volvo again to come back home to Delhi or Chandigarh.

You should check my travel guide for Manali – Solang including sightseeing places, accommodation options, food joints, etc.. 

Hence, Manali – Solang Valley is one of the best places to see snowfall near Delhi in Himachal as the probability of finding snow or snowfall is very high. Having said that, these are some of the most crowded options as the availability of snow is almost sure shot winters when you visit Manali and Solang Valley in winters.

2. Jalori Pass – Shoja

Jalori Pass or Shoja are other options to find snowfall or snow near Delhi in the winter months of December, January & February. They are pretty close to each other and have pretty good connectivity with Delhi from the Mandi side all around the year.

In fact, by taking some locals along, you can even do a snow trek to Serloskar Lake to see it all frozen in winters. But, please plan it with some local or a guide and after taking the advice from locals in Shoja on its feasibility.

As Jalori Pass and Shoja are on the way to Manali (diversion from Aut-Mandi), you can take the overnight Volvo to Manali from Delhi or Chandigarh and then get down at Bhunter, Kullu from where taxis are easily available for about Rs 1000-1200. You can rest at Shoja for a day or two and follow the same path to reach back home on the last day.

In summer, one can actually go down to the other side of Jalori Pass to come back to Delhi from Narkanda – Shimla route but you will not find snow in the summertime at Jalori Pass.

If interested in more details on Jalori Pass – Shoja including how to reach it, accommodation options, etc.. you can go through the Tirthan Valley Travel Guide

3. Prashar Lake

Prashar Lake near Mandi is another place with an overnight journey where you can find snow or snowfall near Delhi in Himachal in the winter months from December to March.

You need to follow the Delhi – Chandigarh – Manali highway to reach Mandi from where it is about a 1.5-2 Hrs drive to Prashar Lake via Kuatalya – Baghi villages. Prashar Lake is about 20 km from Baghi village.

Cars can almost reach the top of Parashar Lake normally. But in winter, when there is a lot of snow on the road, you need to consider parking your vehicle at the most practical point you find below near Baghi village or on the way and then start the snow hike to Prashar Lake. The trek to Prashar Lake can last almost about 4 Hrs in case there is too much snow on the road 😉 …

Do not forget to carry a water bottle with water in it when trekking to Prashar Lake in winter. You will need it on the way up to it as there are no drinking sources available on the route.

Prashar Lake itself is really amazing to visit and with snow all around it, a heavenly sight indeed.

As you need to hit Mandi, again you can take the overnight Volvo to Manali from Delhi or Chandigarh and then get down at Mandi from where taxis are easily available for about Rs 1500-1800 to Prashar Lake. You can spend a day there at the forest rest house and walk to the Prashar Lake anytime you want, preferably the next morning.

So, considering you start Thursday night, by Friday late noon, you shall be at the top. You can spend Saturday at the rest house exploring the lake or rest amidst nature. Sunday early morning can come down and start the journey back home. For booking of FRHs, you can refer to the article How to Book HP PWD Rest Houses or FRHs.

4. Hatu Peak – Narkanda – Kufri – Shimla

Next on the list is Hatu Peak – Narkanda where you can enjoy snow or snowfall near Delhi in Himachal in the winter months of January and February or even mid-March at least at Hatu Peak.

Narkanda is a very easy 8-9 Hrs drive from Delhi via Shimla or one can take an overnight Volvo to Shimla from where Narkanda is just about 60 km away and taxis are easily available from Shimla.

If you are lucky, you can even enjoy the snow in these winter months at Kufri – Shimla as well especially around the new year window. These are in fact the closest places to Delhi where you can find snowfall or snow in Himachal Pradesh and can easily be done over a weekend by leaving Friday night and being back by Sunday late night.

You can always check my detailed article on how to plan a trip to Shimla and Manali.

5. Pabbar Valley (Kharapathar – Shelapani – Rohru – Chanshal)

Pabbar Valley which includes places like Kharapathar – Shelapani – Rohru – Chanshal, located about 120 odd km from Shimla is another place where you can find snow or snowfall near Delhi in Himachal Pradesh in the winter months of December to February even March – April at least towards Chanshal Pass.

As said in one of my earlier articles 12 Must-Visit Offbeat Places in Himachal Pradesh, Pabbar Valley is one of the most enchanting places in Himachal Pradesh yet isolated from the tourist rush to an extent as of now. It offers some awesome panoramic views along with multiple nature walks/hikes in the dense orchards and forests all along the valley.

To reach Pabbar Valley, you need to take the diversion road from Theog, a place ahead of Shimla. The diversion road generally is not that good in condition, and it is better to make a trip to Pabbar Valley in case you have at least four days in hand to really enjoy the journey as well, rather being just an “on the road” type journey in search of snow. 

You can also club Chakrata in Uttarakhand as you can travel from that side to Rohru and exit from Narkanda in Himachal. I did a similar trip as documented in the itinerary for Rohru – Chansal Pass trip.

6. Triund near Mcleod Ganj

Triund, located at a 4 hrs hike from Dharamkot – Mcleod Ganj, Dharamshala, is another place near Delhi to find snowfall or snow in Himachal over a long weekend trip in the winter months of late December to March.

However, it might not be possible to reach the top of Triund in the winter unless you are in for a hardcore adventure. But, on the way to Triund from Mcleod Ganj, you will find plenty of snow to play with and come back to Mcleod Ganj for a good night’s sleep.

Again, if lucky, you might get to see snowfall even at Mcleod Ganj as well, especially in early January – February. In the extreme ends of winters, the snow is available higher up towards Triund, and as the core winter months approach that is January & February, there is ample snow that can be found on the way to Triund as well.

You can take an overnight Volvo to Dharamshala – Mcleodganj on a Friday night. Reach there on Saturday. Take a rest and enjoy in Mcleodganj or Dharamkot. Sunday morning hike on a trail to Triund for a couple of hours to play in the snow and come back to take the evening Volvo back home from Dharamshala. If you want to travel up to Triund and camp, then better to travel on Thursday night by adding one more day to the plan.

7. Khajjiar – Dalhousie

Khajjiar, commonly called an Indian version of Switzerland, is another place near Delhi that receives a good amount of snowfall in the winter months of January and February.

Khajjiar meadows in snow look so beautiful as if a white carpet has been laid by nature amidst long pine trees kissed with snow over hills in the backdrop, a dream probably. It becomes almost hard to believe your eyes 😉 … However, seeing snow at Khajjiar is a lucky affair too sometimes.

Khajjiar is an overnight drive from Delhi and easily connected via Pathankot – Chakki Dam railway station. So, you can also take the overnight train to Pathankot – Chakki dam, and from there, take a taxi to reach Khajjiar via Dalhousie. The next day you can rest at Khajjiar and then start the journey back on Sunday to reach Delhi in the same order.

In case you have 4 days, you can even enjoy more by exploring more places around Khajjiar as Kalatop, Chamba, Jotte, etc..

Check this comfortable 4-day itinerary for visiting Dalhousie – Khajjiar – Chamba:

  • Day 1: Delhi – Ambala – Banur – Kharad – Roopnagar – Hoshiyarpur – Dasuya – Mukerian – Pathankot – Chakki – Dhar – Tunnahati – Banikhet – Dalhousie
  • Day 2: Dalhousie – Chamera Lake (21 km) – Chamba (40 km) – Gete (17 km) – Jot (12 km) – Gete (12 km) – Khajjiar (7 km)
  • Day 3: Khajjiar – Rest day
  • Day 4: Khajjiar – Dalhousie – Delhi

  2. Vijaya kumar on

    We are planing to visit Delhi on 25th October 2018 to 31st October 2018. Can we see the snow fall nearby during our visit. could you please mail me the destinations. ([email protected])

  3. I’m planning a trip around Christmas with kids where we can see some snow. We’re looking for a place which is not too crowded. Can you suggest options? We have 3-4 days.
    I also wanted to go to Khajjiar but couldn’t find any decent place to stay. Can you pls suggest options.

    • Priya, you may find snow at Rajgarh which is near Haripurdhar. It is a quaint little village nearby Delhi and less people know about it. apart from that you can visit Pabbar Valley/Chansal Pass region for snow as well

  4. Hi we will be in Rishikesh for few days ending the 12th December,my daughter is wanting to play in the snow we have 5 days till we fly home. Is it more likely to snow in Uttarkhand or Himachal, which area do you suggest we go to please.

    • By mid December, it is unlikely get snow at places around Rishikesh. The best bet to find snow around Rishkesh during December is Manali where you can go to Rohtang Pass. If that does not have snow, then it is difficult to get snow anywere nearby. All depends upon when the snow will start to fall this year.

    • thanks for reply, so is Manali area the only option to try for snow mid december? What about Chopta area? The new snow pods up there look interesting. Also what about Kalpa area too ? look forward to your reply thanks 🙂

      • Well, those are good but in general, the snow starts in these areas around late December to January including Chopta and Kalpa. Kalpa towards Chitkul may have some but last year even the road to kaza was open till late December. So, I feel if I go probability wise then Rohtang Pass is highly probable to have snow around it than rest of these places.

        • With your vast experience and knowledge on these mountain areas, if you had only 6 days till you left from Dehli, what area would you pick? We love less touristy areas and like exploring. If we can’t touch snow to have a beautiful view closely of mountains would be nice. Your website is very informative, but the more I read it’s harder to make up my mind. We are a family of 3. Last place is Rishikesh and then we have the 6 days. Much appreciated

        • Hmm, I will suggest that from Rishikesh you travel to Gwaldam and then from Gwaldam enter into Kumaon to visit Chaukori and Munsiyari. In December, there won’t be snow but the views will be beautiful. I always travel to Kumaon to these places in December to have quality time with my family without much tourist hustle bustle.

        • Thank you kindly for your suggestions I will have research on those areas.

    Thank you

  8. Satyawan Singh on

    Hi Rajeev,

    Can you suggest right place near to shimla for 4 days tour. I am planning to visit 20th June at Shimla.

  9. Hi,
    I’m planning to visit Manali in the 3rd week of May. I’m opting for a Zoomcar from Chandigarh. I have made hill drives like Ooty etc but haven’t done on Himalayas. Is it ok to opt for a Figo / Jazz / KUV or is a SUV (Ecosport/Scorpio) mandatory for those roads. I wouldn’t travel anything much beyond Rohtang Pass.


      • Thank you Dheeraj. Few more silly questions…
        What will be the travel time from Chandigarh to Manali keeping the speed restriction alive (Max 110kmph – if only I can reach on those roads)?
        Any idea about the approximate toll charges for the full route?
        Are there any four lanes, if so for how long?

        • Manoj, forget about going beyond 50-60 that too only on very few sections unless you really want to risk the lives. Chandigarh to Manali takes about 8-9 hrs on an average. Guess you just need to pay Rs 30 to enter Himachal and rest there is no toll up to Manali.

  10. preeti agarwal on

    Hi we are arriving delhi on 1st Feb. From there we are planning to go a hill station with snow on5th .we have a kid with us…so can u suggest places with snow n manageble weather

    • Preeti, you will not go wrong with any of the places above especially when it is expected have heavy snow in coming days only in Himachal

  11. Hi Bro,

    My name is Rafi and its my and my wife’s dream to see Taj Mahal and snowfall i.e place covered with snow.I am planning to fly from bangalore.Can u help and suggest me for the same.And by any chance is it possible to see the Republic day live ? awaiting ur prompt response.

    • Rafi, you can try places listed above in the article and most of them are accessible with 3-4 day trips from Delhi. Rest one day trip to Agra can be made for Taj Mahal and 1 day you can spare for Republic Day parade in Delhi.

  12. Traveoport on

    Great tips you have mentioned in your article. I think every travel company should mentioned travel tips at their website so that traveller will get knowledge.

  13. Hi Dheeraj,

    I am planning a trip by Zoomcar from Chandigarh to Dalhousie and Dharamshala between Jan 18th and Jan 22nd and need your guidance here –

    1. Will there be snow at Dalhousie, Khajjiar and Dharamshala(Mcleodganj) during that time as I want to enjoy snow atleast at one of these places ?
    2. Is it safe to drive car from Dalhousie to Khajjiar and from there to Dharamshala? Dont want to get stuck in snow 🙂
    3. Is it possible and allowed to do Triund Trek during that time and probability of finding tourists there?


    • Bharath, below are my comments on it:

      1. It should be there on the trek towwards Triund how ever it has been exceptionally bad year this one with Rohtang Pass still open.
      2. Unless it snows on that very day heavily, it is mostly safe
      3. Usually it is not recommended unless you are good in trekking in snow and have prepared yourself to stay in camps overnight at the camp or make arrangements in advance in the couple of rooms up there. But as I said, this year has been expectionally super bad in terms of snow.

      • Thanks Dheeraj. Can always count on your blogs and advise regarding Himalayas 🙂

        We had an awesome Manali – Leh bike trip in September after following most of the itineraries mentioned in your blogs. Thanks again

        • Hi Dheeraj, Its me again. I will be travelling to Khajjiar from Amritsar by car on Jan 20th. I have heard most of the roads in HP have been closed due to snowfall. Will it be possible to go to Khajjiar and if so what route should I take?
          Also advise on the route to Dharamshala from Khajjiar the next day.
          Thanks again 🙂

        • Bharath, well, do check about the latest conditions as it is expected to snow more in coming days and ask if the roads are open to Khajjair. Sometimes they close for a day or two in heavy snowfall.

          Regarding route, you can follow the Google maps and they should be able to make you reach on these conventional routes. You have to reach Pathankot as a straight forward route and from there take route to Banikhet – Dalhousie – Khajjair. You can avoid Nurpur route as it takes longer time and follow the route through Bhatwan – Dunera villages.

  14. Hi Dheeraj,

    It is very informative article, i need your advise.
    We 5 riders are planning for a bike trip for 5-7 days in end December (25th dec to 01st jan)
    Please advise the best place where we can ride on snow, also advise itinerary.


    Best regards,

    • Hello Adnan,

      Safest bet of finding snow is Manali – Rohtang Pass, rest all other places starts to get snow by that time of the year. If you are lucky enough and snow starts falling a bit before, you can opt for Tungnath – Deoria Tal but it will be touch and go because like I said snow starts to fall during that time and sometimes first week of January is when snow starts.

  15. Tapan Menaria on

    Hello Mr Dheeraj, seeing your authentic info about this area, would like to have your guidance. M planning for Shimla trip in Jan second week 2017, main purpose is to show and let kids play is lots of snow. Problem is that we do not want to travel by road on hills as kids and wife feel motion sickness. So m planning for Shimla as we can reach there by train also. can you pls suggest me places around shimla for lots of snow for kids. we can go to such places and come back to our resort. pls suggest which places should we go or even stay at such places.

    • Tapan, you can go over to Narkanda and you will find plenty of snow up there in Narkanda or towards Hatu peak where children can pla plenty in snow.

  16. sachin Pandharmise on

    Hi…. pls suggest me a place in himachal Pradesh where snow fall or snow covered area during month October .

  17. jitender pratap on

    Hi dheeraj sir i know u r the most authentic and trusted counsellor, in coming winter most. Probably in first or second week of jan i am thanking about BHARMOUR. Is it possible to rreach there in jan as i know sir u hav many sources in himalaya so i believe u would give me most feasible detail about this.

      • jitender pratap on

        I m thinking about Hadsar village ,kugati wildlife sanctuary,barmani devi temple,khajjiar and kalatop sanctuary . I think Manimahesh is bad idea during jan

        • Bhai, just enquired. You should not venture into it beyond Chamba during that time and once reach there, take a call after talking to locals.

  18. Neha Singh on

    where can i get to see snow in may mid, planning for 3-4 day stay

  19. Shailendra Singh on

    Hi Dheeraj, I am going to shimla from 13th June to 18th june pls suggest me to cool place neare by Shimla where I will go to enjoy my trip.

    • Bhai in June, nothing shall be cool around Shimla. You should go over to Kinnaur Valley as you have 6 days to feel cool in June 🙂 … You want to go over there?

  20. pls mail me list of hill station where there will be snowfall in april and may month

  21. Thank you very much for the review. It is very informative and helpful. Would you please suggest me which one is the best in your view if you have to travel in last week of March for 3-4 days?

    • Ratri, I will suggest you visit Rohtang Pass as there only you will find snow this year in end of March rest of the places did not have much snowfall this year.

  22. Hi, I am planning to go to shimla and kufri in mid March 2016, please suggest if still snow is there or not, because I want to see snowy shimla

      • Please suggest, should I go there or not because I am expecting chilled atmosphere or fog even if snow is not there.

        • I will suggest to skip it, it is much hot in NCR and so in Shimla/around lower hills. You will not see what you are expecting. Manali will be more cooler.

  23. Dear Sir,

    Thank you for your valuable suggestion to proceed to Manali to ensure availability of Snow during the last week of March this year.

    We had been there quite a few times, We were just planning for other stations like Nainital. Kindly suggest me alternate places where snow could be found in the said period.

    • For snow it will be hard to find in March with overnight journey and in Uttarakhand it is not possible to find in March with overnight journey. You can though try Pabbar Valley – Rohru – Chansal Pass but again, it will take about 12-13 Hrs to reach Rohru from Delhi. Next day you need to rest or go to Chansal Pass till the road is open , enjoy in snow and come back to Rohru. Next day either rest or come back. How many days do you have in hand?

      This seems OK to me if you have about 4-5 days in hand to make it easy trip, 5 will be better

  24. Dear Sharmaji,

    We are visiting Delhi by March last week. I am excited to take my kids to hill station preferably a overnight journey from delhi where could I snow then

    • Ravi, if you have not been to Manali, take them there as snow accessibility is easiest up in Manali during that time towards Rohtang Pass.

  25. apoorva verma on

  26. hii dheeraj can u please tell me is there is a snowfall in kufri at present tym….

  27. Kumar priyan on

    Hey Dheeraj,

    I am from Delhi, studying in shimla and want to go on a vacation for 2 or 3 days. I am really confused and can’t decide a place. Please suggest some good places to go on a bike trip alone. Preferably some place with temples.
    Thank you.

    • Kumar, if you see the entire series of articles, it enlists about 17 places in total. If you around Shimla only then you can move into the Pabbar Valley towards Rohru or Shelapani

  28. hi dheeraj,
    i am planning to travel from delhi to dalhousie and near by places in january. can u please suggest the budget for hotels, public transport, cabs etc. i will be travelling solo and is it advisable to explore offbeat places alone or with a group? are the shared cabs pre booked or can be booked there?

    • Hi Ankush,

      You can take the volvo to Dalhousie or the HRTC bus. The hotels / guest houses are there, I do not have a specific name to remember but there are on the main road couple of them who sells at economic budget. There will not be shared cab available as toursits but will be there for local people whom you can board.

    So well written! Would like to know where could I see snow during end May & take a 11 year old kid too. Preferably not a very touristy place , but still accessible.
    Thanks & regs,

    • You shall visit Manali in such a case to witness snow in summers but unfortunately it will be a touristy place. Rest at all other places, snow will be gone.

  31. Hii

    • Snowfall depends upon luck and as far as snow is concerned that too will depend upon the snow that have fallen by that time. Sometimes snow does not fall that much to be there during that time of the year.

  32. Hi Dheeraj,

    Needless to say that this was a very crispy & compact description. Thanks for the quick preview.
    The photograph of parashar lake is “THE Most Awesome” 🙂

    Any suggestions for a ski destination?
    Something that is easily reachable (easy compared to narkanda ) & not too crowded ??

    I want to plan a tour anytime in February 2015. Please help


    • Trishito, skiing happens in Auli and Solang Valley after Gulmarg here in North India, AFAIK. Apart from that anywhere else it will be a tad difficult.
