Dear Anagha,

I think in india you will not find any place with snow in the month of may.

And secondly i have already got the details on Chopper service to gangtok

and this info i got it from some else.

Thats it .

Shimla, Rohtang Pass and Kullu Manali are the only places where you may find some ice in May

Hi Anagha,
Jump into the next flight to chandigar, take a taxi to Manali from there and stay overnight at hotel Kunsum. Next day ask the driver to take you to Rohtang Pass. That is a three hour drive and you get snow either at the pass itself or take a Poni ride to upper elevations. The snow capped ridge you find on the left side is sonapani glacier, that is permanent ice. Well, enjoy the ice and post photos and memoirs.Remember, you are standing above 19000Ft altitude and so drink lot of water to make up the oxygen deficiency. Good luck.
