Winter in is surely a chilling one. Abundant rain, hail, and snow yearly shower the country from October till March.

Over the last several years, there has been a reduction in precipitation, delaying the snow more and more.


The first snow fall recorded in Faraya (a region famous for its ski club and slopes) this year was on the 6th of December. Snow enthusiasts captured the first white landscape passionately.

Here are some pretty good pictures that documented the event.
