Shimla: Himachal Pradesh capital Shimla and its nearby tourist spots shivered on Wednesday after snowfall, giving a picturesque look.

This was the season's significant snowfall that froze the "Queen of Hills", as Shimla was fondly called by the British.

According to the Met office here, Shimla recorded 2.1 cm of snow. The mercury saw a low of minus 0.2 degree Celsius.

Other picturesque tourist resort Kalpa in Kinnaur district saw three cm snow.

However, Manali in Kullu district and Dalhousie in Chamba district remained bereft of snow.

"High-altitude areas of Lahaul-Spiti, Chamba, Kullu, Kinnaur, Sirmaur and Shimla districts have experienced moderate snow," a Met official said.

Kalpa recorded a low of minus five degrees Celsius, while the temperature was minus 4.4 degrees Celsius in Manali, 5.4 degrees in Dharamsala and minus 0.2 degree in Dalhousie.

Traffic movement beyond Dhalli, 10 km from here, which was partially suspended on Tuesday evening as a large stretch of the road was under a blanket of snow, has been restored, officials said. (IANS)
