Umm. Its almost 150km from Shimla plus a 7km trek if that helps.

And that's a frozen lake. Frozen hillside will come soon, post lunch.

Kufri doesn't have any lake like this. But I have seen a lot more snow in Kufri than this.

Phamilyman, are you sure you heard rattles from the car, or your own chattering self? Referring to frostbite.
