Lambasingi : South India’s only place where you can enjoy the snow along with the ocean
South India has always been known for its rich history, fascinating sea coast and delicious dishes. Many beautiful places of South India are the first choice of tourists. But when we think of a freezing place to roam, South India is not in our list, but Shimla, Gulmarg, Manali and Nainital are our favorites. The only weakness in South India is that there is no snowfall. But a small village of ‘Lambasingi’ in Andhra Pradesh is the only place where you can enjoy the snowfall.
Kashmir of South India
Lambasingi is also known as Kashmir of Andhra Pradesh. The beauty of this beautiful little village is the cold weather you can enjoy the snowfall here, while in the summer you will be convinced of the cold atmosphere here. Located at an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level, this village is located in Chintapalli town of Visakhapatnam. In this local language, this village is also known as ‘Korra Bayalu’, which means ‘If you sleep outside in this village at night, then in the morning you will freeze like a wood.’
Lambasingi weather is covered with white mist throughout the year, especially from November to January, the Lambasingi temperature is below zero degree Celsius. During this, you can enjoy snowfalls too. In this village most people live in tribal communities, who work in gardens of black pepper and coffee.
