Winter Camping and Hiking
Camping in the snow! Sounds like beauty and peacefulness of a pristine winter wonderland. Winters have a profound attraction of extreme cold, snowfall, Icicles and so on the experiences, it is the most adventurous season where one doesn’t have to attain the top to just touch the snow but travel by car or hike for half an hour and he is there, on the snow. The point of trekking or camping in winter is the reach of snowy landscape by just tiny effort. There are no bugs or crowds but only the peacefulness, and in such a lucid atmosphere who doesn’t want to play in the snow? With a little preparation, you will be surprised at how comfortable things can be. Because winter outings offer different challenges than summer camping. You should be prepared for more severe weather and shorter daylight hours by having extra gear and additional skills. So before you leave home, have a plan to splurge into the delightful weekend.
Hiking and camping in winter season is a different experience with the mind blowing scenery of the Nature. Winter in Kullu valley is totally different as compare to the summer. Winter in Kullu Manali is very cold and harsh. Winter in Kullu starts with the month of November and ends in February. Winter is difficult but relaxing. The mountains and the peaks are covered with heavy snow. The scenic view of the valley is so great that one can’t go without experiencing it. The landscape is covered with white blanket of snow and the greenery is less. In winter the roads are almost open but if heavy snow falls routes can be closed for some days. After all one can explore walking around in between the snow. Camping is also done in the winter season but with the proper preparation. Camping in the snow appeals to anyone who enjoys the beauty and peacefulness of a pristine winter wonderland. In the winter there is not much crowd and no more bugs. Winter season is so cool that one can’t resist himself playing in the snow. But it needs a little preparation for the winter, though you might be surprised how comfortable it can be spending some time in the snow covered landscape. Winter outings offer different challenges than in the summer camping. You must be prepared for severe weather and shorter daylight hours by having extra gear and additional skills. One can go from the campsite for the day hike to the Bijli Mahadev temple or elsewhere in the valley with brief knowledge of hike in the snow. One should have proper gear to avoid cold. The Bijli Mahadev is 25 km away from Kullu and one can visit the place in a day. Walking on the road alongside of snow covered meadows makes it a pleasant feeling to someone who had never seen snow. After going through beautiful landscape one would be surprised reaching at the top of Bijli Mahadev by seeing the spectacular views of the peaks around. But in the winter one don’t have to climb so high because snow reaches down to the lower places of the valley. So it is worth to come and visit Kullu Manali in the winter season with the unforgettable memories.
