Winter may leave all of us hogging dhoop at every rare ray of sunshine, but you should know you’re STILL safe from the brutal onslaught of cold winds that envelop some of the colder Indian states.

Take for instance, Kashmir and the beauty of seeing an entire stretch of land covered in brilliant white snow.

However, for the people of Srinagar, this view is very close to their heart, and their eyes. With temperature dropping as low as minus 6.2 degrees, it’s both the cold and the views that are to die for!
