    I personally know many places which are much colder than the ones given in this list of 10 and others mentioned below as well. Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh is way much colder than Guwahati that’s mentioned below the list of 10 places. Infact Tawang would be far more colder than Delhi which made it to the list.

    i guess, average temperature should be barometer to judge this rather than vague naming of cities, no hard feeling towards any one but generally speaking if we have to name 5-10 coldest cities in india. List has to include Leh, Srinagar, Gangtok, Shillong, Shimla, while place very cold are Dras, Kargil, Tawang etc etc.So, it should be properly researched & added.
