Answer: It is often believed that festivals bring out the best in people, whether it be in terms of wardrobe or the general celebratory air. Most people also believe that with extreme winter and snow, it's best to stay inside your cosy blankets and keep yourself warm. If you're visiting Pahalgam during the winter season, you might want to rethink the idea of staying indoors.

Winter Snow Festival is the ideal way to make the best of the local surroundings and bond with the locals while you participate in daily events. This is an initiative by the J & K Government and the Indian Army to promote adventure activities and tourism in different parts of the state. Indulge in some skiing, snow-sledging and horse-racing to get that adrenaline pumping. Or if calmer adventures are what you're in the mood for, then become a total child while you make attempts to build that perfect snowman! Let the foodie in your rejoice after all that activity with the various food stalls. And if you're in the mood for some shopping, the festival hosts some local shopping stalls too. This festival is usually organised in the month of February and is variable according to the climate. Be sure to check the dates for this one from the tourism office in advance.

Be sure to carry
ample woolen clothes and snow-boots to fully enjoy the festival and its various events. Skiing and other equipment is usually easily available within Pahalgam on rent, but there may be a shortage due to high tourist demand during the festival. So if you can, carry your own gear and equipment. And don't forget to pack that camera!
