Normal life in Kashmir has been thrown out of gear as snowfall continued intermittently for the fourth consecutive day, virtually cutting off the Valley from rest of the country due to the closure of Srinagar-Jammu national highway and suspension of air traffic.

Heavy snowfall began on Friday morning in several parts of the valley, affecting the movement of traffic and leading to traffic jams at many places as the roads were rendered slippery. 

On Friday, Srinagar, registered the minimum temperature of 0.1 degree Celsius and the famous ski-resort of Gulmarg in north Kashmir registered a low of minus 6.2 degrees Celsius, the lowest in the valley.

These spectacular photographs show how Kashmir is living with the heavy snowfall:
