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 21st March: BRO has started the work to restore Manali – Leh Highway. So far, the road from Manali to Gulaba has been cleared of snow. While in Lahaul Valley, the road from Darcha to Sissu has been cleared. However, recent heavy snowfall has delayed the work on reopening of the road from Sissu to Koksar. Work to reopen the road from Koksar to Rohtang Pass would be started by end of the month.
