Palm in the Snow - Rare Combination

Thimphu was taken by surprise! Thimphu city experienced a very heavy snowfall on 17th February, 2013 after a very long time. This was the second snowfall in Thimphu, the first snowfall wasn't thick enough. The snowfall did the effect, the scenic beauty of the city was mesmerizing.
 Whats taken my interest was the Palm in the snow. I have never seen it before although I got to explore more.

Fan Palm.  It is often rare to see sub-tropical palms growing in the snow but the Royal Botanical Garden, Serbithang has it.
