“There are no sign of snow on Rohtang pass and it has melted away even on the higher mountains,” Dhani Thakur, trekker and owner of Himalyan Eagle Adventures, said who has been scaling the Himalayan mountains for last 15 years. He adds, “Certainly the mountains had received heavy snowfall in winters but the snow accumulation is decreasing very fast.”
According to sources, most of the people in Manali and other hilly areas of Himachal are now going for AC cars which was considered a stupid thing some years back. Residents are now purchasing air conditioners for their homes. However the nights are cool in inhabited mid and high hills with average minimum temperature at 15 degrees Celsius but scorching heat is of day is forcing people to take a dip in cold water.
