    Baralacha La has reopened for traffic. Now the work is on to open Rohtang for traffic as well.

    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.

    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.
