Snowfall area in India

India is a big country, mostly 30 percent of area covered by mountain ranges. Himalayan ranges are  the hub of snow fall activity due to its high elevation also know for snowfall areas in India. The great Himalayan range starts from Jammu Kashmir and ends in Assam. The highly elevated mountains in Himalayan ranges are covered in snow throughout the year. Kashmir, Himachal, Utrakhand, North Sikkim and in Assam are the regions for yearly snowfalls in India. 

Mostly travellers and snow seekers have this confusion as they can’t match timings to yearly snowfall in India especially in Himachal as highly elevated regions are out of reach during winters and lower regions does not have perfect snowfall duration, weather can cheat you and your expectations here.

Mostly the winter time is the best time to visit lower regions in Himachal if you want snow but its better to first concern with private guide pr agency for possibility of snowfall and dates with highest potential. Its true that snow activities are fun but if you can catch snow while snowfall it has its own. The month’s January, February and March are the best months obviously to witness snow. In summers you  can find the the snow in  other highly elevated areas like Rohtang pass, Leh ladakh and some parts of Utrakhand
