Snowfall Leaves Foreign Tourists In Lurch

Dhunche (Rasuwa),3 March 2015: The snowfall with rain taking place here for the past five days has left 25 foreign tourists reaching Langtang and Kanjeng for sight-seeing in lurch.

The snow measures five feet in Langtang, which is at an altitude of 3,400 metres, and five-feet in Kyanjeng – some 3,900 metres atop from sea level.

Such a continuous snowfall was never seen since 20 years back, he added. The snowfall has put normal life in trouble and killed 5-6 yaks in the area.
