Hi, apart from the far and out places is there anyplace ahead of Rishikesh or Mussoorie where one could expect snowfall this December?

Hi JZSinr !



Better place to enjoy a lot of snow+snowfall would be Auli (near Joshimath). Around 3rd week of December, there would be a lot of snow. You may even try your hands at skiing.

Alternatively, Dalhousie also experiences snowfall.

Ahead of Mussoorie is Dhanaulti on the Chamba road (25Kms about) - if you just wanna see and touch snow and ice and get cold, but if it's more of a thing about putting on your parka, snow shoes and whipping out yr ice axe you'll have to inform.

Thank you both.. I will be there around the 11th and 12th of December. The problem is that this is a low budget student trip. We barely have 2000/- per head and we are coming from Delhi with the plan of a 3 day trip.

On a low budget, I'd suggest Manali, but traveling would gobble up almost 28-30 hours in bus travel. You can find hotels for around Rs. 250-300 per night right across the bus terminal. Most places will provide an additional bed for another Rs. 50 if you wish. Food should not be an issue if you avoid fancy places advertising Punjabi, Gujarati, or Rajasthani thalis and stick to local chow like thukpa (a thick soup) or plain ole dal & roti.
If you can stretch your budget to 3-4K, then I would definitely suggest Auli for guaranteed fun in the snow.
Or you could keep an eye on the news and hit Shimla on reading about fresh snowfall, it's a shorter journey and would also cost you less. Food is relatively less expensive and plenty of inexpensive places to stay. Avoid traveling by a taxi to places around Shimla, use public transport.
