    Kashmir is like to some European and North Asian countries in this regard as winter is very severe there. This thread made me to recollect an article that I read about the Baikal lake located in Russian region of Siberia, just north of the Mongolian border. This lake also gets solidified in the winter and even the vehicles move over it. Incidentally lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world and is a favourite tourist place for a large number of tourist from all across the globe. The hiking path around the lake is a very long trail and is known as Great Baikal Trail. It is an ideal spot for winter games like ice-skating, dog sledding and adventures like wildlife-spotting trips. Kashmir also has a great potential for all this type of activities.
    Knowledge is power.
