The mountainous terrain of Himachal makes it the perfect place for skiing with blankets of snow covering the land. So, if you’ve ever wanted to ski down the Himalayas, here’s your chance- head to Kufri (Shimla) or Solang Valley (Manali) to speed down the snowy slopes. The annual winter sports festival is held in Kufri, so if you’ve got the experience, try out at the fest!

The best time to engage in these activities are from December to February.

4.Mountain biking and motorcycling:


Mountain biking is the easier one out of the two, as it involves riding a bicycle down rough roads and slopes. It is a challenge, but at the same time it allows you to take your time and pace to take in the view as you cycle along passes and cols. On the other hand, mountain motorcycling includes biking at incredulous speeds down terrains that will make you leap along the natural bumps and barriers! The Leh-Manali highway provides a good challenge for mountain bikers and motorcyclists. July to September is the most suitable time to enjoy the rush of mountain biking and motorcycling.
