KATHMANDU: Snowfall has thrown normal life out of gear in Nepal’s several high-hill districts today.

Heavy snow has battered the upper regions of districts such as Humla, Dolpa, Mustang and Gorkha’s northern belt.

The Department of Meteorology has forecast westerly winds in most parts of the country for the next three days and light to moderate snowfall in some parts of the high hills and mountains.

Meanwhile, some places in the western districts, including Karnali, Mustang, Lumbini, Gandaki and Bagmati are witnessing snow fall coupled with light rainfall.

In Mustang, there has been heavy snowfall in Muktinaht, Jomsom, Lomanthang, Namdo, Charang and other areas, authorities said.

Meanwhile, cold has abruptly increased with the snowfall continued for two consecutive days in Humla, according to RSS.

The snowfall took place in the district for the second time this year.

First time it occurred on November 3 this year. Raj Bahadur Bohara, a local, temperature has fallen sharply in the district with the snowfall continued for Sunday and Monday.

Temperature has decreased to minus seven degree Celsius in Humla.

Snowfall has whitened the entire northern Humla district. People are making fun of the snowfall.

Even the farmers became very happy with the snowfall on Sunday morning in the opportune time of crop cultivation.

The snowfall will help make the barren land cultivable at a time when there was a long spell of drought, locals said.

Though Humla’s weather is clear since this morning, the mountains have been covered with thick snow causing the fall in temperature.
