The Kinnaur district and Spiti valley of Himachal Pradesh remained isolated from the rest of the state for the sixth day today due to heavy snowfall and landslides. Work to re-establish power supply to Kinnaur and Spiti, and to clear the National Highway (Hindustan-Tibet road) has been hindered due to the heavy snowfall.
The Kirtpur-Manali National Highway, which was open upto Manali on Friday, has been opened upto Palching and efforts are being made to open the road upto Solang Nallah.
Some of the power houses in the region were also damaged due to heavy landslides in the region. Experts from Delhi have been called to review the loss and to carry out the power generation again.
