AMRITSAR: Shimla administration has issued a set of guidelines for the tourists visiting Shimla from Punjab, Chandigarh and Haryanaduring the snow fall .

 

“The Shimla district administration faces challenges in the form of traffic snarls, road accidents, health facilities, paucity of enough rooms in hotels, power and water supply etc. In order to minimize all these bottlenecks, the Shimla district administration has sought support from Punjab, Chandigarh and Haryana and had also issued a set of guidelines for the tourists to follow” informed Amritsar deputy commissioner Kamaldeep Singh Sangha on Wednesday.
The guidelines reads that due to non-conducive circumstances, if one has to halt journey, the vehicle should be switched on every ten minutes to keep its engine warm. While switching on the engine, its widows should be rolled down a little to prevent obnoxious carbon monoxide from getting collected inside the car, which can also cause death .
 
 

The guidelines also include that the tourists should get their rooms booked before coming to Shimla so that they do not face problem in getting a hotel or rest house room on the spot, unsafe to drive during snowfall , driving only during day time and not to drive alone said he adding that snow normally lasts for 3 to 4 days in Shimla. Besides this, it also snows in nearby areas including Kufri, Narkandan etc.

 
 

Sangha informed that Shimla administration had advised that instead of reaching Shimla , the tourists could also visit nearby areas to minimize the crowd while advising that once snowfall tapers off, one could also visit Shimla.
