Snow time in North India

by moumita 7 year, 4 months ago
Cold waves have hit north India this season which has created jitters in the daily life of local habitants. However, it’s a happening time for the tourists to see snow covered Himalayas. Tourists have waited for months and are delighted to watch snow come down. It is the season’s second snowfall that the Jammu & Kashmir valley has experienced.

The popular tourist spot - Manali in Himachal Pradesh had a moderate snowfall of about four to five inches in early morning on 3rd Jan.
The entire north Indian belt of Punjab, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir are under intense cold weather. Amritsar was freezing at 1.2°C while Delhi's minimum is at 3°C. Leh and Ladakh reached -18.6°C.

The northern region is experiencing heavy fog and causing delays in trains and flights. Almost all morning flights were delayed or cancelled due to poor weather in the capital and other parts of the north India. The train facilities are disrupted as well. Hundred of passengers are stranded at the airport and railway stations.

Many passengers are reluctant to travel under this extreme situation. Tourists are advised to use caution while traveling to North India.
Though fog affected the normal life of the inhabitants, it’s the best time for tourists interested in snow and adventure sports like skiing and ice skating. The bank of Srinagar’s Dal Lake is totally frozen.

With the increased tourist inflow, it is a good time for tourism industry after a lull last year due to recession.
