Mussoorie, Nainital, Shimla & Manali Get Over Crowded As People Seek Respite From Heat

    While the temperature in Delhi is expected to cross the 45 degrees march, IMD has stated that there is not going to be any respite from the heat in North India. The heat wave in north India is worsening day by day with the maximum temperature recorded at 48 degrees. To add to the plight, people from the plains are heading over to the hill stations in such large numbers that hills are overcrowded and facing traffic jams and overbookings.

    What Is It?

    With the heat wave intensifying, hill stations like Mussoorie, Nainital, Shimla, and Manali, are witnessing a huge influx of tourists. And it’s not just the popular hill stations. Smaller places like Kanatal in Uttarakhand and Kasol in Uttarakhand are also facing overcrowding, traffic congestion, and overbooking.

    Reportedly, the Nainital administration has taken a decision to restrict the tourists from entering the hill station each time there is no parking space and will only let them in once the traffic has cleared out.

    Kedarnath is also extremely crowded once again with approximately 10,000 vehicles approaching every day.

    Nothing much can be said about how long it shall take until the temperature drops. Although the weathermen do predict slight rainfall on 12th and 13th June after which a drop of 2 degrees will be expected. But seeing the larger picture it won’t really make much difference to the people suffering in North India.
