    Hi Yogesh..this year when do you expect zozila pass to open. I am assuming other passes namikla, changla will be open once zozila opens.

    Other passes are open throughout the year, Zoji La will likely open in first week of May.

    This is unbelievable. Wow. Hardly two weeks left....
    That means the Ladakh tourist season is going to be longer and people there will benefit too.
    Looks like one of the rare occasions when it opens so early.
    Will wait for more news..

    Let's hope so, everything depends on the weather though, if Western Disturbances kick in, opening of Zoji La can get severely delayed.

    What about the Mughal Road? Does that remain open throughout the year or the Pir ki Gali also snows out for some part of the year?
    Tentative status in the 1st week of April is what I am looking forward to.
