Snowfall crisis. For the sixth day, Manali-Kullu powerless and paralysed. 19 Dec 2014 – Internationally famed Kullu-Manali, a popular tourist destination, has suffered heavily with continued disruption of power supply and telecom services. Roads are blocked by snow and fallen trees/electricity poles and hoteliers face huge cancellations ahead of the Christmas and New Year eve rush. For the sixth day, the twin tourists towns of Kullu and Manali remain without power. Thousands of tourists have cancelled their stays and returned home. Power disruption has hit the towns badly. Road clearing has so far been done only on Kullu-Manali road, but even then, lots of vehicles remain stranded. “The situation in Manali is very bad,” said Sunil Bamba, a Manali hotelier. “I have faced huge cancellations during past three days…. It’s a tough time for the hotel industry…. The heavy snowfall has caught everyone by surprise.” http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/snowfall-crisis-six-days-on-manali-kullu-powerless-paralysed-as-tourism-gets-biggest-blow/ Thanks to Argiris Diamantis for this link See also: 6,000 tourists stranded at snow-hit Manali, Shimla/Kullu
