We went to this place during the end of October 2012. It was an absolutely amazing experience. We enjoyed the snowfall, the breathtaking view of the himalayas, yak rides, and a memorable experience of playing with the snow. Yumesangdong (Zero point) is a must -see. The place is about 15000 ft above sea level and one of the highest motorable roads in India. About a few kms from there, you are in Tibet. It's a very tourist - friendly place and offers snow throughout the year, although it is closed during Dec - Jan as the snow covers the area completely. During Mar -Apr you can find the trees blooming with flowers and extremely beautiful. (I heard you can find around 140 varieties of flowers during that time!!)
Things to note are - It is a high altitude area, and the oxygen levels are quite low, so if you have asthma or any breathing problems, its not very advisable to go there. Be equipped with ample warm clothing, including gloves and something to cover your face too, except your eyes ,of course. And don't forget your rubber boots, which can be hired from there for a nominal fee, else be prepared to bid your precious shoes goodbye coz you cannot walk on the snow with regular shoes.
Overall it's an awesome place to be, you can infact get a Swiss experience right here in India. and maybe better than that.
