A video from Himachal Pradesh that shows a moving wall of snow on the hilly roads of Kinnaur district is going viral.

In the viral clip, a huge block of snow about 10-feet high is seen sliding onto the highway, as people and cars move backward. The footage, that was captured by a tourist, shows the avalanche sliding slowly on the highway even as people bring out their cameras to record the unusual sighting.

The incident was reportedly recorded earlier this week at the Tinku Nallah near Pooh in Kinnaur district.

The footage, that is going viral on social media, also started a conversation on climate change. Some people also criticised the tourists for putting themselves in danger to film the event.

Several areas, including Shimla, received light to moderate rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms and lightning whereas some high-altitude areas witnessed snowfall on Monday. The death toll in snow-related mishaps has risen to four since January 8.
