Heavy snowfall in Uttarkhand hills especially in Mussoorie-Dhanaulti severed road links on Friday as authorities closed schools after the Met forecast heavy rains.

The overnight snow that continued in the morning left a white sheet on the famous Mall Road in Mussoorie, which melted as the day progressed.

Tourist spots like Lal Tibba and Gunhill in Mussoorie basked in the white glory even though there was bright sun shine t.

Dhanaulti-Mussoorie road was closed this morning after the heavy snowfall blocked it completely, a traffic department official said.
