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.
