Excessive snowfall has affected normal life in Mustang since Sunday evening. With snow blanketing the upper reaches of the district, the temperature has dipped and freezing cold has gripped the normal life in Muktinath, Lomanthang, Thorpass, Chhoser, Chhonup, Phuwa, and Nechyung, among other places.  Snowfall has disrupted vehicular traffic in these areas. This is the second time that the areas have received snowfall this winter. Residents remain indoors to keep themselves warm away from the cold blast outdoors.

The areas are witnessing heavy snowfall accompanied by cold wind. However, farmers seem happy expecting better harvest.
