We received the latest updates from our treks in the Himalayas that it has been snowing. This gave a terrific feel of winter to the trekkers, even during peak winter.

This impromptu snowfall has also intensified the excitement on treks. Watch the video to see latest footage from Deoriatal-Chandrashila, Dayara Bugyal, Kedarkantha and Kuari Pass treks.

According to the Meteorological Department, this weather will continue till March 24.

This is a welcome change in weather. It has resulted in temperatures dipping by 5-7 degree Celsius. The Forest Department is also happy that it would help in preventing forest fires that had started gaining momentum due to the dry heat of spring.

Stay tuned to this space for more weather updates.
