What Does It Mean For The Travellers

You get to witness fresh snow!! Most travel plans are now being cancelled, but if you are looking at going for a quick getaway, then mountains might be a good idea. While the lower regions demand not wearing a jacket and roaming around in a half-sleeved t-shirt, the upper regions are making it feel like December, even now.
