News saying no respite to UK from Rains - those who are passing through and reporting in this blog are really lucky ones - I would suggest if going with family then avoid till 28th -
Officials saying by 28th the roads will open upto Gangotri. No rains now in Uttarkashi region - now means right now AT 4.45 PM 21 AUG but correspondent saying the rains can come at anytime. BRO is working as and when rains stop. Heavy rains still expected to come anytime. Electricity condition is very bad in the whole of UK.

Should the trip after 28th August 2012 should be avoided, as we are going in a group tour on 28th.
If we postpone the tour, then when should we go.
 
Re: 2012 - road condition Uttarakhand

If children and Ladies in the group then you should surely avoid and instead plan in Oct. The temples will be open till Diwali day - so if any of the dhams or all dhams then plan accordingly. But if going alone or all Adult male in the group then can go ahead but with extra days. Some of the members have filtered through all these landslides and road blocks and even posted from their destinations.
