With temperatures finally dropping, winter is officially here in India. People are super delighted as they can now experience a soothing cool breeze around them. People have pulled their sweaters, hoodies, and monkey caps out. If you are someone who loves to travel in winter rather than sit back at home in a cosy blanket, we have an idea for you. Visit Mussoorie Winterline Carnival in 2022.

Mussoorie Winterline Carnival 2022

Mussoorie is known as the “Queen of hills,” a hill station that offers the most picturesque views and a soothing climate. The winters here are simply magical, and what adds to the magic is the Winterline Carnival. Every year in the last week of December, Mussoorie celebrates the winterline phenomenon in the grandest and fun manner.

When, due to the refraction of light, a false horizon is formed at dusk, it is known as the “winterline phenomenon.” Only a few mountainous regions, like the Himalayan region and some areas in Switzerland, are blessed with this view. The carnival is going to make a grand comeback after a hiatus of two years owing to the pandemic.
