Hi Yoyesh, planning Sachpass during the 19th to 21st July weekend, any suggestions ? ThanksYou can find latest information on the road conditions of Lahaul, Spiti and Sach Pass (Pangi Valley) in 2019.

Shimla – Kaza (Spiti Valley) Road Status: Open, with heavy snow accumulation on the road.

Permit for Rohtang Pass: Online permit registration for going beyond Rohtang Pass is now open and can be done from the following link, Tourism Development Council Manali (H.P.)-InformatoryScreen. The permit would only be issued to vehicles which are less than 10 years old and this permit isn’t for people who are just going to up to Rohtang Pass (if you return from Rohtang, your vehicle will be blacklisted.)
Great Storme !Guys, just completed the sach pass circuit. The route we took and the road conditions for members is as follows (we left on 19th and came back 23rd July and were the only tourists in and around Sach pass at that time). We were also lucky as we didn't get any rains in the entire trip. The car we took was a Tata Safari Storme 4X2
1. Day 1 Delhi to Bairagarg via Dalhousie (around 650 kms) - good roads till Dalhousie and pathetic near Bairagarh. Stayed at hotel Chamunda and took 13 hours to reach from Delhi
Day 2 Bairagarg to sach pass 31 kms in 2.5 hours - roads disappear after Satrundi check post and a lot of snow before and after Sach pass
Sach pass to Killar 40 kms - severely potholed roads
Killar to Udaipir 75 kms very bad roads with no good patch anywhere
Udaipur to Keylong 54 kms - decent roads all the way with some exceptions. We stopped at Keylong on day 2 and stayed at Atithi guest house
Total time taken from Bairagarh to Keylong 13 hours to cover appx 200 kms
Day 3 Keylong to Manali via Rohtang Pass 120 kms. Roads just before and after the pass are in a mess.
Day 4 rest at Manali
Day 5 Manali to Delhi in appx 12.5 hours good roads most of the way including Bilaspur. Some road works happening here and there but overall fine
