The first snow of the year has fallen in the highlands of Van province of Western Armenia due to the sharp change of weather in recent days.

The rain in the center of the city turned into snow in the highlands. The Karapet mountain pass at an altitude of 3,000 meters on the Van-Bahcesaray highway has turned white due to snowfall. Occasionally thick fog and snow make it difficult for drivers to drive.

Despite the heavy fog, the rescue teams continue to work with special equipment to clear the snow on the road.
