Bomdila and Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh witness heavy snowfall
Bomdila and Tawang have witnessed snowfall in Arunachal Pradesh with temperatures dipping to subzero level, informed a Facebook friend of mine from Arunachal Pradesh with a photograph of snow covered new settlements in Bomdila - the headquarters of West Kameng Districts.

It is said that the Bomdila-Tawang road was covered with more than one feet of snow for the last few days. The road goes up to China border and considered as a lifeline of the Indian Army. The road has been blocked completely and it would take a few days to clear the snow.

Though with the heavy snow fall tourists are thrilled but the life of the local tribal people have become miserable with chilling winds. This time, the state has been witnessing a cold wave situating for the last few weeks, which has thrown local life out of gear.

The entire Twang valley is presently covered with a thick blanket of snow and whole of Arunachal is going to be gripped with unusual long spell of cold wave this time, it has been predicted.

Arunachal Pradesh is in the most northeast region of India. It borders the states of Assam and Nagaland to the south, and shares international borders with Bhutan in the west, Burma in the east and China in the north.
