Sikkim received fresh snowfall earlier today.
Upper reaches of East and North Sikkimreceived the season's first snowfall on Sunday night. Much to the excitement of tourists, up to one feet of snow was reported from Lachen and Gurudongmar lake in North and Changu Lake, Baba Mandir and Nathula border in East Sikkim. Delayed snowfall had raised concerns among tour operators and hoteliers in the State as the tourism industry heavily depends on tourists visiting these destinations to enjoy snow. Several bookings had been cancelled during the past week as there was no snowfall in these areas.
