Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

What more can one say. Your wonderful style of narration, accompanied by some fantastic photos, sure makes my day!

Work crunch is important, but Mile crunch is more interesting!
So keep it coming!

EDIT: Could you please provide the dates you're in Narkanda? I've been dying to visit a snowy place, close to Noida, but fear I might be too late since it's starting to get warm already.
I was in Narkanda on the 4th and 5th of Feb. It had snowed there the weekend before when SS-Traveller was there.
It has snowed yesterday even in Shimla. So this weekend should be perfect for snow chasers.

ps: For those who want to make Shimla their base and not stay in 'proper' crowded Shimla (especially if you are driving), there is a brilliant homestay in Shoghi 13km from Shimla run by Mr Romesh Agarwal, a retired gent and his wife.
Amazing views, clean rooms, reasonable prices, great ghar ka khana.

Have stayed there twice including this time on the way back.

Sunrise Villa Shimla: Stay with nature @ Rs. 1200

Other places to stay, closer to snow are

The Apple/Peach? Blossom in Fagu
Hotel Hatu in Narkanda (but do book in advance)

Narkanda is atleast 2 - 2.5 hours from Shimla. Roads are mostly okay but some stretches are quite bad.
