Kathmandu: Chandragiri hill, a major touristic destination on the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley, has witnessed snowfall on Thursday.

Snowfall took place in Chandragiri hill this morning along with a light drizzle since last night. This is the second snowfall that capped Chandragiri hill in the winter this year.

According to the Meteorological Forecasting Division, the country is witnessing the impact of the westerly wind. The westerly wind that entered from western Nepal on Wednesday night is likely to trigger light to moderate thundershowers and snowfall for the next two days.

This atmospheric condition may have implications on the aviation sector, mountaineering, agriculture, transport and people’s daily life. Due to the weather change, cold is likely to rise and the Division has urged all to take precautionary measures against it.
