Due to global warming, the weather in the mountain and hilly region has changed unusually. Because of this, we are facing some problems with bad weather, heavy rainfall, landside, highway blocked, flight delayed, or even cancelled for a day. Sometimes because of the road traffic, we couldn't arrive on time. It may happen at any time of the year because we can't predict the weather condition and other situation.
