The inclement weather continued in the town for third consecutive day due to fresh snowfall and rain on Tuesday.

Rohtang Pass received heavy snowfall on Tuesday. Solang ski slopes was reported to have experience 2ft snow, while Marhi, Kothi, Gulaba , Rahala Fall, Kaniyal Hills, Bhanara and Shaleen villages also experienced a fresh spell of snow.

Kunzum Pass, Baralacha La Pass, Lachlangla Pass and Tanglangla Pass were also reported to have experience heavy snow further hampering the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) from carrying out snow-clearance operation on the Manali-Leh border road.

The BRO had assured to open the Rohtang Pass for traffic by April 30, but now with more snowfall it appear to have become more difficult for the organisation to restore the work. The fresh snowfall and rain have resulted in a considerable fall in the mercury.
