Just a month back, we saw how parts of Himachal Pradesh looked straight out of a Disney movie after the temperature hit -0.6 degree Celcius. Popular tourists destinations including Manali, Solang, Dharamshala, and Shimla were covered with a bed of fresh snow. It was a breathtaking sight!
However, North-East India has been gripped by severe cold waves and after 37 years, Nagaland has received snowfall and has truly turned into a winter lover’s paradise! According to a report by The New Indian Express, snowfall occurred in Tuensang, Kiphire, Zunheboto, Phek, Kohima and Peren as the temperature hit below 3-degree Celcius.
According to India Today, people on the internet have been sharing pictures and videos of snowfall in Luvishe and Shamator village, and Dzokou Valley in Nagaland and it is remarkable.
Have a look:
What a wonderful gift for the people of Luvishe Village under Aghunato sub-division of Zunheboto district to experience snowfall after 37 years.

A village of Shamator, Tuensang has been experiencing a snowfall this year, unusually. And many places in Nagaland have been experiencing it as well. It's beautiful & celebration but on the contrary suddenly its a sign of global warming which we must be aware of. #NAGALAND pic.twitter.com/aw3tMgD1bY
