    I have to be in Leh from October 15th to October 28th. Which routes will be open during that time? Is there a JKSRTC bus from Leh to Srinagar for returning back? How much time will it take? Is there any online booking?

    I was thinking of going to Leh via Manali, is the HRTC 04.00am Manali Leh bus running?

    By that time the HRTC bus might stop running, it all comes down to weather. However, you will be able to find a shared taxi to Leh.

    Leh - Srinagar bus service should be running at that time.

    Thanks for your reply sir. Can you please share the timings of the Leh-Srinagar bus? The HRTC website however lists booking for this bus upto December. They should correct it if the bus will stop running!

    Leh - Srinagar bus starts at 2 pm from Leh and stops at Kargil for the night. There might be a change in timing, in case there is bad weather, so make sure to confirm beforehand.

    HRTC's website is fairly simple, I doubt they have a system in place to stop booking after certain number of days.

    Srinagar - Leh Highway is closed due to snowfall and is expected to remain closed for the next 48 hours.

    Despite the public order by administration, people are still crossing Zoji La and traffic is plying on the Srinagar - Leh Highway.

    Zoji La is dry and dusty like always. Don't know why it was closed.

    There didn't seem any sign of landslides around Zoji La.

    Snow isn't going to stay for a long time at passes. A day or two of sunshine is enough.

    Usually, around when does Pensi La open for traffic? It is quite low on the priority list..
