Despite being home to the largest area of the mighty Himalayas, Skiing in India has historically been associated with only a couple of places - Gulmarg and Auli. Fortunately, over the past few years, this has started to change with a few new popular Skiing destinations coming up. The most prominent one amongst those locations is the extremely popular mountain town of Manali. Home to a bunch of adventure activities, Manali has been gaining quite a lot of recognition as the ideal place for a Skiing trip in Himalayas.
