Save Vs Splurge: The Perfect White Christmas
The holiday season is officially going to start from tomorrow and we are excited AF! Some are hitting the beach, while others are all set to trek the mountains. I, on the other hand, am a sucker for snow. Even though it is difficult to find a place in India that has snow and is easily accessible, if someone asked me to, I could spend my whole life making snow fairies! And if you are looking for a vacation in one of the regions that is all about the white goodness, then keep reading.
This Christmas, gift yourself the perfect getaway to Switzerland. I mean, a Swiss vacation would be the best thing ever, especially after this *amazing* year. Snow capped mountains, skiing lessons, red-roof huts, and loads and loads of hot chocolate, or any chocolate, for that matter. Indulge in friendly conversations with the warm locals and hog on some amazing delicacies. From wine tastings to cheese fondues, winter in Switzerland is bliss. And if you are looking to splurge on travel, this is the ideal way to do it.

But, let’s get realistic. Since going to Switzerland next week may not be possible, go to Khajjiar instead, right here in India, and get the same feels — well, almost! Khajjiar in Himachal Pradesh is a beautiful location and an easy replacement for the Alps. Plus, it is basically so cheap when compared to Switzerland, you can make 5 round trips to Khajjiar in the same amount money. Sure, the chocolates won’t be as tasty, but you can enjoy a good skiing experience here. Dalhousie is a stone’s throw away, making the mini Tibetan town easy to explore.
