Ganderbal: Fresh snowfall was recorded in the higher reaches of central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district while the plains received rains.
Officials said about 2 inches of snow was recorded in parts of Sonmarg.
The Srinagar-Leh highway, which remains closed throughout the winter, received 4 to 5 inches of snow, they said.
Officials said the fresh snowfall might delay opening of the 434-km highway.
Meanwhile, hundreds of tourists visit Sonamarg to enjoy the snowfall.
“I am seeing snowfall for the first time in my life. This is so exciting,” a tourist from Delhi said.
