Sissu Lake Transforms into Winter Wonderland at -15°C

Amidst the icy embrace of winter in Lahaul-Spiti, nestled in the trans-Himalayan region, the enchanting Sissu Lake is undergoing a captivating metamorphosis. Situated at an altitude exceeding 12,000 ft, the once-rippling waters of the lake have succumbed to bone-chilling temperatures, creating a mesmerizing frozen wonderland that is nothing short of a visual spectacle.

Reports indicate that the recent weekend witnessed the valley gripped in an unrelenting cold spell, with temperatures plummeting to a chilling -15°C. In response, nature has blanketed the landscape in a pristine palette of white and silver. Sissu Lake, usually animated with trout swimming in its crystal-clear waters, now lies beneath a serene layer of ice, resembling a flawless mirror reflecting the surrounding winter beauty.

Himachal Pradesh’s Frozen Marvel

The allure of Himachal Pradesh extends beyond Lahaul-Spiti, drawing tourists seeking respite from the dense fog engulfing other North Indian states. As the new year unfolded, the hill state, with clear skies and pleasant weather conditions, began attracting visitors eager to partake in its unique winter experiences.

Kufri, in particular, has emerged as a hotspot for tourists, offering the perfect setting for ice skating enthusiasts. Happy Chauhan, the organizer of ice skating activities at Hip Hip Hurray in Kufri, highlighted the growing popularity of the transformed swimming pool turned into an ice skating rink. Over the past ten days, visitors have enjoyed unique opportunities to glide over the frozen surface during day-long ice skating sessions.

Testimonials from tourists further affirm the allure of Himachal Pradesh, particularly during this season. A visitor from Andhra Pradesh expressed delight at the supportive environment for beginners in ice skating, sharing memorable experiences and recommending the destination to family and friends. Another tourist from Rajasthan echoed the sentiment, praising the ultimate weather conditions and encouraging others to join in exploring the hills.

As the icy chill tightens its grip on Lahaul-Spiti, tourist activity in Himachal Pradesh is heightened. The frozen spectacle at Sissu Lake and the thrilling ice skating opportunities at Kufri contribute to the region’s allure, transforming the entire area into a winter wonderland that leaves a lasting impression on all who venture into it during this time.
