South India is known for a lot of things. Be it the ancient temples, the delicious cuisine, the breathtaking coasts or the mesmerizing hill stations, there is something for every kind of traveler in the southern part of this marvelous country. However, one thing that south India is not associated with is snow. A mention of snow conjures up images of some north Indian destinations like Shimla, Manali, and Gulmarg but never any place in south India. What if we told you that there is one little village in Andhra Pradesh which actually receives snowfall? Yes, you read that right. Located at an altitude of 2702 feet, Lambasingi often receives snowfall during winter. It faces sub-zero temperatures at night and its foggy landscapes are a delight for visitors.

Lambasingi is being developed as a tourist attraction on account of its cold temperature. During winter, it is great getaway from Visakapatnam which is located around 100 km away. During summer, it is considered as a pleasant retreat. Thanks to its low temperature, Lambasingi is being referred to as Kashmir of Andhra Pradesh. Its surrounding region includes green valleys and serene rivers that are extremely picturesque. The mist makes the place looks like a dreamy vacation spot. With its growing popularity, the Andhra Pradesh Tourism department is planning to open a state-run resort here to cater to the slowly growing number of tourists.
