Heavy snowfall in Kashmir

Heavy snowfall has been continued in Srinagar, Pahalgam, Gulmarg and Sonmarg since the Sunday night. Now all the places are covered by snow. Rain is also there. Gondola service in Gulmarg has been stopped due to bad weather.

Srinagar has received more snow this time as compare to Pahalgam, and its still snowing now here in Srinagar, but the snow is watery and will melt in no time once the weather improves.

Hopefully the weather will improve after mid March. So, do not freeze the plan now. Early April is usually a good time to visit Kashmir.
