The winter festival, organised by the state tourism department in collaboration with Patnitop Development Authority, is being held at the snow-covered Patnitop in Kashmir’s Udhampur district.

A number of snow sports like skiing, sledging, tug of war and snow man building are on offer for tourists at the carnival.

During winters, holidaying crowd from the plains of India and other parts of the country prefer to horde northern states of India to experience snowfall.

The inflow of tourists has brought in good business for local shopkeepers. Located in the tropics, most of India witnesses a very hot summer and a largely temperate winter.
