Dal Lake freezes partially, Srinagar records season's coldest night at -6 degree C

Srinagar (J and K), Jan 09 (ANI): The world famous Dal Lake was partially frozen on Tuesday as Srinagar recorded coldest night of this winter after the mercury dropped to minus 6 degree Celsius. In Srinagar, the streets were almost deserted this morning and springs were also seen frozen.

The famous lake was frozen solid last in January 2006. Before that, in 1986 and in 1965, there were reports of vehicles on the lake.

Local media reports say tourist Shikaras are facing problems along the lake shores. Water and power crises are a recurrent problem every year during winter in the state.

Intense cold wave conditions are blanketing the Valley for the past days as it goes through the 40-day long period of harsh cold, Chillai kalan, which began on December 21 and continues till January 30.
