Hey Geet,

Where in Himachal you wish to be? If it is at lower altitudes, no problems.

If you wish to be at higher altitudes, there will be snowfall ( might be very heavy ) by December end. Roads are closed for almost 6 months after December. Avoid any place beyond Shimla. Shimla also receives lots of snow.

Comparatively, Dalhousie - Chamba - Khajjiar is accessible circuit in HP even during heavy snowfalls. Dalhousie receives lots of snow but roads are cleared withing a couple of days by the military.

If you wish to experience snowy climate December ( 25th Dec onwards ) is good season. Most of the hotels offer discounts as this is lean season.

Wish you happy memories.

Weather in beginning of December is very nice and chilly.

Usually there is snow after mid Dec and roads are still accessible. You can enjoy the cold weather and nature.

Heavy December snowfall in Shimla is wildly optimistic : last time Shimla had a white Christmas was in 1991. slightly better chances from first week in January.
