Border Road Organization has begun its road clearance work on the Manali – Leh Highway for 2013, with two BRO teams working on the either side of Rohtang Jot to clear the high altitude pass as soon as possible.
As per BRO, once Rohtang Jot is cleared of snow and opened for traffic, they will begin concentrating on Baralacha La, which is the largest hurdle in opening of the Manali – Leh Highway.
While there is no word yet on when the route will reopen, however Rohtang Jot is expected to be reopened for traffic by April, if weather remains favorable. However Manali – Leh Highway will likely reopen by middle or end of May.
We will of course keep bringing you up to date information and news on not only the Manali – Leh and Srinagar – Leh Highway, but also other vital routes in Ladakh. So make sure to subscribe to our RSS Feeds to stay updated.
