In the past few weeks, the North Indian destinations have been facing extreme low temperatures that are affecting the daily work for many people. However, people from Punjab, Delhi, and Haryana have also been traveling to Manali and Shimla to witness the snowfall. Despite the attraction of the snow, the temperatures have resulted in heavy snowfall which disrupted tourist transportation.

Considering the upcoming New Year and Christmas celebrations, people are rushing towards Goa. Goa is a great winter destination and it sees hundreds and thousands of tourists every year. However, due to the Covid scare, only domestic tourists have been seen traveling to Goa. The number of domestic tourists have increased a lot since the past few months.
