Himachal Pradesh is breaking its dry spell with intermittent rain and snowfall since Tuesday evening, offering respite to a landscape parched for more than two months. The picturesque region of Pangi-Killar has been adorned with more than one foot of snow, while snowflakes continue to grace high-altitude areas including Kufri, Narkanda, Manali, Lahaul, Spiti, Kullu, Kinnaur, Sangla Valley, Kangra Valley, Dalhousie, Chamba, and Chitkul. The Meteorological Department has raised an orange alert for Thursday, cautioning residents and travelers of potentially hazardous weather conditions.

The recent snowfall has brought a sigh of relief to farmers and gardeners, infusing the landscape with much-needed moisture.
