This is the 2018 road status thread for Srinagar – Leh Highway, featuring the date of opening of the road as well as the latest road conditions, regularly updated by the travelers.

Srinagar - Leh Road Status: Closed.

Update, 20th March 2018: Srinagar - Sonamarg Highway has been reopened today for light vehicular traffic. Traffic would only be allowed between 11 am and 3 pm each day, until further notice.
Sir,
As per news updated snow on srinagar leh highway has been getting cleared and this time road will open earlier. We are planning for a trip to ladakh via srinagar leh highway in last week of April. Need to know will it be possible to cross zojila pass in last week of April?

Hi,
on the Leh website, its mentioned Srinagar - Leh road status as OPEN !

And we can get online Ladakh region's ILP by visiting LAHDC Leh Permit , though I believe the printouts have to be stamped at Leh DC office to make that online permit valid.

regards,
Pranav

No official confirmation has come yet for the reopening of Srinagar – Leh Highway. Even though it is clear of snow and locals are crossing it in their vehicle. However, tourists will likely be stopped. Interestingly though, Srinagar – Leh Highway was reopened on 6th April in 2013.

Online permit system is only for registered travel agents with the Leh Administration, since they have to submit payment offline each week.

Hi
But the ongoing tension in valley is holding me back for doing any bookings. It's true that one can't preplan Leh trip by road. Surprises even before starting the journey. Now the students are also joining protests. This is going to be tricky till the PM's visit to the valley. It seems that the reports of TOI are not that misleading.

This year it is nothing.
Back when Burhan wani was killed, each and every member of a household used to protest, even then tourists were visiting Kashmir, though the numbers were on the lesser side. Same at the time of the Amarnath row few years back. Those who want to visit, will come anyhow. So, it really is just a mental excuse to not go for such a trip.

Like rest of India is any safer than Kashmir =D>

Once the winter gets over, protests pickup. This is usual affair along with cross border infiltration. Yes, dates around PM’s visit will be particularly tense, since both the protestors and the security forces will be out in full force.
