Hundreds of thousands trapped in their homes.
Heavy snowfall on Saturday broke a 35-year record in Galyat with more than 12 feet (3.7 m) of snowfall in 20 days.
The heavy snowfall has trapped hundreds of thousands in their houses as main roads and dozens of link roads are blocked by snow and landslides.
A severe shortage of food, petrol, oil, firewood, medicines and other necessities of life and days long electricity breakdown has pushed residents of Galyat into even deeper trouble.
Three more spells of snowfall are expected in Galyat before the end of February.
