To borrow a famous phrase, winter is coming. It’s that time of the year when parts of the world get covered with a sheet of snow. Now, if you’re situated in Mumbai, or any part of South India, the concept of snow is alien to us. But for others, you know just how beautiful everything can look, when the orange autumn colours are replaced with the white of the snow.

So we scouted the world and brought you photos of famous places under the veil of snow. So while you’re busy preparing your flight tickets, take a look at these wonders.
