The scenic Galayat valleys on Wednesday received the first snowfall of the winter season, turning the weather cold and chilly.

Snowfall was reported at Nathiagali, Ayubia and Thandiyani where more than four inches snow was recorded.

The snowfall and heavy downpour continued from the previous night, resulting in a decrease in temperature in Hazara division, especially in the hilly areas.

Other hilly areas of Hazara including Kaghan, Naran, Babusar Top have also received more than six inches of snowfall.
