    If you cross Rohtang from Leh side, No Permit Needed.
    In Jun you will find snow in all the 4 passes between Leh and Manali,
    Baralacha La will have the most snow.
    after that Rohtang.

    Happy Landings Satinder.

    If Tata Nano and a Rickshaw puller can reach Khardungla Pass why can't Samtro reach Leh.
    Absolutely no problem.
    Locals have Maruti 800 and they go to Leg from Srinagar

    Rohitmj,
    If all your tyres are good, not need to take an extra tyre. Roads are good all over.
    What is you plan to visit what all places.

    Happy Landings

    SNOWFALL FORECAST

    On Sunday 28 JAN 18, one WD will be over North Himalayas, and will cause snowfall in Kashmir and Manali. lets see by tomorrow or tonight the picture will be more clear if it will affect Shimla etc etc.

    Behind this Sunday WD is another WD which is huge, and hopefully will hit us by Thurs or Fri, 1 or 2 Feb 18, in the coming week.

    So tell your boss now itself
    I want 10 days leave, and will give you 3 days notice only

    In the mean time
    get your bike or car or SUV serviced and be ready with a packed bag.

    If you have nothing, tell, just tell me. i can take you.
    BUT I am waiting for the Kashmir Valley Floor to be white,
    then head off to Kashmir, and take the train from Srinagar to Baramulla and back to Srinagar. It is an experience not to be missed. So if you really want extreme fun, for a White Floor in Valley, wait. My friend in Srinagar will call me that the Valley has 1 foot of snow, that is when i turn my Ignition Key in my 4x4 with snow chains loaded.
    I am always ready for 3 hours notice for departure

    Till now everyone was crying no snow no snow no snow
    now snow is coming, so get the hell on the highway and drive guys.

    Happy landings

    Hello Ramesh,

    I plan to visit Amritsar (its sightseeing places), then Srinagar(its tourist places), Leh-Ladakh (nearby spots), while coming to Manali (few places around it) then back on roads to be in Bangalore.

    I am short of holidays, so plan needs to be quick and crisp.

    Regards,
    Rohit J

    Please post all your queries in this dedicated thread Bangalore to LehLadkh by Santro, this thread is mainly for the road condition of Manali - Leh Highway.

    Snow clearance operation for Manali - Leh Highway to begin from the 1st of March. In the initial stage, Rohtang Jot would be cleared from both sides (Manali and Lahaul) by the BRO. As of now, both Baralacha La and Rohtang Jot have just 5 ft of snow on the road, hence it should be easier to clean for BRO than earlier years, unless Western Disturbances make up for lack of snowfall in Feb and March.
