" The pleasure of risk is in the control needed to ride it with assurance so that what appears dangerous to the outsider is, to the participant, simply a matter of intelligence, skill, intuition, coordination... in a word, experience. Climbing in particular, is a paradoxically intellectual pastime, but with this difference: you have to think with your body. Every move has to be worked out in terms of playing chess with your body. If I make a mistake the consequences are immediate, obvious, embarrassing, and possibly painful. For a brief period I am directly responsible for my actions. In that beautiful, silent, world of mountains, it seems to me worth a little risk." -A. Alvarez.

Hey Umang,

Some of the good treks for beginners in winters are:
1. Triund trek
2. Kheerganga trek
3. Malana and Chanderkhani Pass trek

Hi Umang!!

Hope your kit is suited to the rigours of a winter trip. And of course there is the matter of conditioning too.

A warm sleeping bag, a decent tent, good layering, sturdy winter boots and mitts and socks for your digits; these are the bare minimum essentials.

I have done some early spring ski touring in Himachal. I can assure you it gets bitterly cold.

Stay safe.
