|Tourists Enjoying Snowfall in Manali, Himachal Pradesh|
Travelers, both domestic and international are thronging in hundreds and thousands in the now-snow clad picturesque tourist spots of Himachal Pradesh, especially in Manali, to enjoy its snow white beauty. Add to this bewitching snowy beauty, some hot adrenaline rushes in the form of skiing, sledging, snowboarding, mountain biking, paragliding, horse riding and ballooning and Himachal Pradesh have what it makes to be the “it” travel destination of India in the ongoing winter months of 2011. The Solang slopes, which are now all wrapped in cottony snow have become the playground of adventure seekers, both professional and amateur, and tourists all geared up in ski boots are queuing up for their turn in the fun-filled skiing sessions offered here. While the monastic Lahaul and Spiti remain out of bounds due to excessive snowfall as is predictable during winter, the other tourist regions of Himachal Pradesh, namely Manali in Kullu and Kalpa in Kinnaur along with Chamba, Dharamshala and Bhuntar are keeping tourism in the state very busy, and merrily.
