So, about Sach pass: I gave it up for this year (actually I got pissed off and left).
The 2 bikers who got stuck the day before were brought down in a police jeep. They got stuck not because of too much snow, but because of inadequate tires and lack of skills. Anyway, they're safe now, but because the need to rescue people, the police has closed the road. So yesterday the conditions at around 11am when I reached the last checkpoint were quite good, just some scarce snow flakes falling now and then. Not much snow on the road, and clear visibility on the pass. However, at the checkpoint just below the pass, the police would not let anyone through. I insisted, I begged, etc.. no luck. They said no permission from district magistrate. Said they might open today. Might...
The weather then started to deteriorate and it looked pretty dark in the afternoon, so there's probably more snow. Don't know how much, just more.

If the weather is bad and in particular it is snowing, then the check post isn’t going to allow you to cross it.

Sach Pass might or might not be open, based on the weather condition around that time. However, even if it is open, it would be risky to attempt at that time.

Hi All, I'm planning to do Spiti Valley from Noida from 13th - 26th this month.

We reach Losar via Tabo-Kaza on 20th October. I understand from the previous post that a visit to Chandrataal may not be possible.

Do you think we will be able to reach Manali from Losar via Kunzum and Rohtang on 21st / 22nd October? We are travelling in a Duster AWD.

Many thanks.
