Hopefully it would make up for at least some of the lack of snowfall this year, else we are in for a rough summer.
Fantastic work by BRO,Atal Bihari Vajpayee Mountaineering and Allied Sports Institute, Manali has setup rescue check posts on both sides (Marhi and Koksar) of Rohtang Jot in order to provide rescue for those planning to cross Rohtang on foot.
Every year, these check posts are setup, when the Rohtang Jot is stable enough to let locals cross it on foot. Locals have to register at these check posts, so that in case any of them goes missing while crossing the pass, rescue workers can go looking for them.
June is totally safeHey.! I have been following this forum and have found it very useful. Thanks for all the valuable inputs. I just had a few questions in my mind -
1) How safe would be the Manali-Leh highway in first week of June!?
2) Would you absolutely recommend an SUV for smoothest, risk-free ascend during this particular period?
3) I also have been following threads about there being lower than expected snowfall this year leading to unexpected early opening of the highway, with all the uncertainty of it, ofcourse. Could you throw some light on this as of today?
4) Anything else you wish to add according to your knowledge and experience.
Thank you for your time and effort. Much appreciated.
