"Him" Means extreme cold in Hindi and some other local Indian Languages.
"Alay" Means Abode. So HIMALAYA means the ABODE OF EXTREME COLD.
So what about some snow now?

Here we find snow on the road from Dalhousie to Khajjiar. Not so clean as India is full of dust and dirt and mud. So the snow here was mixed with muddy contaminants.

That is Khajjiar. Khajuraho is in MP. Go in March...the road is strewn with flowers growing alongside. All the way till Jyot, and Chamba beyond.
