Snow has fallen in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, for the first time in more than 60 years.
Nepal is home to Mt Everest but Kathmandu lies much lower
Although the Himalayan nation is home to Mt Everest, Kathmandu lies in a valley and temperatures there seldom fall below freezing point.
Officials said that the snow interlude was only brief - lasting for about 45 minutes on Wednesday.
Rain, fog and ice have disrupted transport in many parts of the country, causing at least one death.
Local Kantipur television said snow had not fallen in the capital since 1944.
Housewife Manju Shrestha, 45, playing with her young children, said: "I have never seen it snow in Kathmandu in all my life."
