This is a dedicated thread for the road status and condition of the crucial Manali - Leh Highway, one of the only two motorable land routes connecting Ladakh with rest of India. Current status of Manali – Leh Highway: Closed. Manali – Leh Highway is expected to reopen by end of May or in the first week of June, depending on the weather conditions. Update 24th April: BRO teams from Manali and Kokhsar have managed to reach the Rohtang Pass. Road widening, as well as clearance work, is taking place and within a couple of days, Rohtang Pass is expected to reopen officially for local traffic. However, opening Rohtang Pass for tourist traffic will take a lot longer. Since the road has to be stable enough to support the civilian movement. Until then, only official vehicles and locals will be let through.
