Ice skating: Similar to roller skating, ice skating also provides the exhilaration of gliding across glittering ice. When roller skating on ice, the chance of slipping increases by roughly five times, making it difficult to simply walk on it. However, the activity is quite pleasant once you figure out how to get around it. In India, it can be done in Kufri, Auli, Narkanda, Manali and Gulmarg.(pexels ) View Photos in a new improved layout

Ice climbing: One of the most challenging and deadly winter sports is ice climbing. Few things may seem fulfilling, despite the significant danger. Although it resembles rock climbing in many ways, ice climbing is much more difficult since the surface is slippery rather than rocky. Before setting out on an adventure, climbers need to receive the appropriate training and have sufficient expertise.(Unsplash) View Photos in a new improved layout
