Winter blues: White cloak worn by mountainous areas around Abbottabad

As the Galiyat continue to receive heavy snowfall intermittently for the last over fifteen days, life in the hilly areas has come to a standstill as the main Nathiagali Road and several link roads have been completely blocked, disrupting surface travel, locals and the police said on Monday.

The picturesque valley also plunged in the grip of severe cold forcing residents to remain confined to their homes. Water and fuel shortages have worsened in remote areas where link roads are covered with three to four feet of snow. Surface link with Abbottabad has been severed.
