Winter Special

Kufri was very cold and the breezy winds takes the half life out of you and you can see nature's beauty at one place. This place is so beautiful that you would never want to come back. We had super fun in skating. I learned a lot of tricks to skate and made a nice attempt.

Kufri 2017 trip

This was an add on to the Shimla trip I was on with my younger brother & a friend. We met a cute couple at our hotel and they asked us to join them on their kufri trip. So we decided to go to kufri with them which was a great decision. We had kulchas tea maggies at road side and loved the place. Yes traffic was a challenge due to ON season.
