Dalhousie - Bani - Bhaderwah - Doda Road condition


100% Petrol Powered
Could somebody enlighten me of the latest status of this road? I could not drive on this stretch in Sep 2014 due to floods in Srinagar. I am planning to drive to/fro Leh via Dalhousie in this September. I may consider this road either for the up or down journey or both.

I am also looking for bhaderwah Dalhousie road for return journey from Kashmir in mid June, thaks for info...
Checked Udhampur Doda Bhadarwah road in June first week. Roads are ok. Driveable.
Keep eye at potholes at places. Some patches are not good but easily driveable.
Have Rajmah Chawal at Ramgarh !
