2020 Manali-Leh Road Status

NH1 / 44 from Delhi to Murthal Road / Route update....


We are on the way to Himachal Pradesh for work. Started from our home in North Delhi at 4:15 am, were cruising on main highway when just 500m short of Singhu Border, were asked to take a U turn and take Narela-Sonepat Rd.


When we reached Narela, there was a traffic jam. So, instead of trying to negotiate that jam, we planned canal road via Holambi Kalan. That was closed too, policemen were there, they told us to take Auchandi Border. So, we crossed into Haryana at 5:45 am and via Kharkhauda, Sonepat joined NH at Murthal at 6:15 am. So, it was 1 hour extra journey. From Murthal onwards, highway is all vacant.

While crossing WPE at Kharkhauda, I could see traffic moving at high speed both clockwise and anticlockwise.
 
Manali-Leh and Manali-Kaza road closed for tourist.

The Lahaul and Spiti administration has allowed one-way traffic on the Manali-Leh highway from Darcha towards Leh paving the way for evacuation of stranded people.


A large number of people had been stranded in Lahaul and Manali since October 17 due to the closure of Manali-Leh highway after heavy snowfall near the Baralacha pass. As the Border Roads Organisation has restored the highway as many as 136 persons in 76 vehicles moved towards Leh from the Darcha check post.

Deputy Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said, “There is forecast of inclement weather from November 2. The Manali-Leh highway and the Gramphu-Kaza highway which have Baralacha and Kunzum Pass, en route may receive heavy snowfall anytime during the winter.”

“In view of public safety, we have decided to restrict the traffic movement on these routes from November 2. People are advised to avoid journey on these routes because the roads are slippery due to the deposit of snow on the ground,” the Deputy Commissioner added.

Leh road restored, stranded persons allowed to move

Chandigarh to Manali national highway is open and is quite ok upto Manali except few kilometres before pandoh. Because of recent heavy rains, there are many landslides . Administration is working hard with heavy machinery to clear the roads so be prepared for traffic jams. Yesterday there was heavy rain in Manali during night so Watch weather conditions before planning.
 
Hi All.

Will the Manali-Leh route be open upto 10-Oct?

I have never been on this route and I understand that it all depends on weather, but is there any specific dates when it's closed?

Thanks
Dev

Only weather decides but support services like Dhaba etc get closed near by 15 October.
Most of Dhaba start closing from First week of October.

You have to keep eye on news always.
Even if traffic goes after 15 October it has to take own food etc and traffic is also much less.
