Manali – Leh Highway has been restored. However, initially it would be open for one way traffic with the priority being bringing back stranded vehicles from Lahaul.

Manali – Leh Highway is now open for tourist traffic. However, SDM Lahaul-Spiti has advised bikers and trekkers to avoid #Lahaul and #Spiti till next season and keep a watch on the weather.

BRO has asked the administration to restrict movement of vehicles on the Manali - Leh Highway in view of the ongoing snowfall, which has blocked Rohtang Pass and Baralacha La. I have a feeling BRO is going to officially close the highway around 15th October. Though local vehicles will continue to ply on their own risk until the road is completely closed due to snow.
 
How is the present road condition from Manali till Chandigarh? after the recent HP floods? I plan to drive till Manali next week, any suggestions / pointers would be really welcome.
Many thanks in advance

Do you have any information about the current status of the Manali-Leh road? Has it been closed already? We were planning to go from Delhi to Manali tomorrow. Thank you in advance!!

Rain is predicted for Wednesday, so it might snow on upper reaches. If that happen, then the highway can close down.

WEATHER UPDATE 31 JAN 2019, Thurs.

Get ready for another good and huge SNOWSTORM.

by 30 Jan, Wed, it would have arrived over all of Kashmir Valley, and it looks like Srinagar will get some nice snowfall.
On 31 Jan, Thrus, it would have covered most of Himalayas,

So look at the prominent locations marked on this upload, and decided when you want to get there. If you going to another location, then see where are you closest to the location marked here and you should get a good idea.
Road conditions will be sever for BLACK ICE, as in most areas the snow from previous storm would not have melted, and sub zero temp would have frozen the water on the road when the sun came out.
So be really prepared this time.

And it will be fun. get stuck somewhere, maybe you will have to leave your bike or car behind for the rest of the season and then in March or April come back and collect your vehicle.
So carry SNOW CHAINS or SNOW ZIP TIES or just ROPE to wrap around the wheels to get you out of trouble.
