Ladakh, Nov 17 (ANI): Normal life was thrown out of gear as the entire Ladakh region in Jammu and Kashmir received heavy snowfall.

The entire Ladakh region including Kargil district, was covered with a thick layer of snow. The 434 kilometre long Srinagar-Kargil-Leh highway was also closed for traffic for several hours.

"It is snowing since yesterday; it has not stopped yet. As you can see it's still raining and the roads are blocked. The people are facing a lot of problems while walking on the roads. The traffic has also been blocked in several places," said Moulam Gyato, a resident.

" Last year, there was no snowfall till November, but this year the snow has arrived earlier. Last year snowfall amounted up to six inches, but this year the snowfall ranges up to 8 to 10 inches," said Gulam Mohammad, another resident. (ANI)
