Alright! Let's jump straight to the different trips popular in the winters...
Chadar trek, deriving its name from the frozen top layer of Zanskar river, is a unique experience in which you're trekking on a sheet of ice in extremely rough Ladakhi winters.
Kedarkantha trek in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand is a popular winter trek with 360 degree views from the top.
Prashar lake, which gets frozen in the winters, located in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh is another great trek option in the winters.
With the arrival of winters, the high altitude trans Himalayan valley gets covered in a thick sheet of snow. With minimum temperatures going as low as -20°C to even -25°C, and with Kunzum closed, the only entry is via the Shimla Kinnaur route. The winters are a sight to behold. Not just that, for the wildlife enthusiasts, it's the best time for snow leopard spotting as the elusive top predator comes to lower altitudes following its prey.
