Crazed environmentalists take note, the Himalayan mountain passes of Rohtang, Baralacha, Kunjum, Shikula are STILL blanketed in deep snow, in July!
Snow holding on until the end of July is incredibly rare on these passes, reports the The Statesman — in fact, it’s the first time in 20 years that it’s occurred, the packs are usually all-gone by the end of May.
Furthermore, heavy and record-breaking snow has been falling this week actually adding to the pack.
“The heavy accumulation of snow up to 4-5 feet on Rohtang, Baralacha, Kunjum, Shikula passes is certainly good for the environment in the Himalayas,” said Senior Scientific Officer at State Centre on Climate Change, Dr SS Randhawa.
