Chillai Kalan, a 40-day-long periods of intense cold, has begun in Kashmir. As a result, lakes in the valley have started to freeze, making for a magnificent view of the valley for the tourists.
Chillai Kalan commences every year on December 21 and concludes on January 31.
During this period, water bodies situated in the region freeze, due to which locals light small fires each day around rivers and water taps for the deposited snow to melt.
The 40-day period is followed by a 20-day ‘Chillai-Khurd’ (small cold) and a 10-day long ‘Chillai-Bachha’ (baby cold).
