Almost a year back I visited to Panduropa a small village in Sethan valley, Manali, where I stay in igloo and experienced the snowfall and beatuiful nature and more over for the first time I tried snow boarding.
Igloo stay is just 15 km away from the manali and it is 10,000 foot above the sea level. and it is the best place to experience clear and fresh snow near manali. It takes only 45min. drive to reach sethan valley from Manali. there are near about only 20 houses in the valley.
There are various locals of manali, setup their igloo stay over there. and they are charging near about 5999only for 2days and 1night stay over there.
you can even do various snow sports over there, like snow boarding, sking and various other. and i did the snow boarding over there.
Mujhe fiqr nahi hai manzil ki,
Mujhe ishq hai sirf safar se,
Aur safar Mai Milne Valle naye logo se,
Toh manzil na mille toh gam nahi,
Par dua hai ki yeh safar kabhi thame na...

Between December to March, it's ideal time to visit over there, moreover, Sethan valley receives heavy snowfall makes it ideal land for skiing, snowboarding, and snow-hiking.
It's an offbeat location, so, you don't find many people over there. and preferably you will definitely get your own time over there.
During the summer, the place is ideal for camping and trekking.
Note:- Only Bsnl sim works over there.
Khwaab si hai Zindagi,
Manzil ki koi khabar nahi,
Mai jee raha hun ishq Mai,
Aur kisi se ishq hai bhi nahi,
Yeh safar hai khoobsurat sa,
Par yeh safar Meri manzil nahi,
Bas khwaab ko jee raha hun,
Ek ek kerke, aur kisi ki fiqr na karke.
So, if you want an amazing getaway trip in winters, then make sure that you go for Igloo stay.
