    The Srinagar Sonamarg road was thrown open for traffic on Tuesday after remaining closed for nearly four months due to snowfall.

    Official sources said that Srinagar-Sonamarg road has been thrown open for light motor vehicles.

    The traffic movement will be allowed from 11 am to 3 pm only till further orders and no vehicle would be allowed to move further from Sonamarag.

    An ambulance was allowed to cross Zoji La yesterday, so the road should officially reopen for vehicular traffic in a week or so.

    Hi All
    I am trying to understand the impact of early road opening for the planned trip in June. Experts are requested to offer your valuable comments.

    1. As the roads are opening much earlier then will it be correct to assume that peak season will start from May itself.

    2. Or as there is less snow/no snow,the season won't be as crowded as it should be.

    3. What will be the likely scenario of on spot accommodation in June?Is it advisable to go for pre booking in Sonmarg,Kargil,Leh,Hunder,Manali.

    Regards

    1. As per my understanding, Peak Season is when summer vacations start in schools. So the early opening of road won't change the tourist inflow that much.
    On the other hand, road condition would have improved quite a bit by June.

    2. Snow/no-snow shouldn't affect the tourist inflow that much.

    3. No idea.
