i am planning a trip to leh around 16 may. Will the Srinagr-Leh road be opened at that time? :arrow: :oops:

Mod note: Please use appropriate topic to ask your queries. Launch, vision & focus is not the appropriate topic to check road status.

It should. The route is open already but BRO is checking it for avalanches. I expect it to open for traffic any day now.

aashish2137 wrote:@saroj29, the Zozi La route (Srinagar - Leh) isn't open yet due to avalanches in those regions. Its 5th May already and though the route opened on 29th April last year, this year it might open by 15th May or so.

Nobody can commit the clearing of roads and its deadline but if the roads aren't open, you can explore the option of visiting Himachal or flying to Leh from Delhi.


Thank you v much Ashish.

No confirmation yet from my sources on opening of Srinagar - Leh Highway, will check with them in the evening. Last news was, Zojila Pass has been cleared of snow but BRO is waiting for conditions to stabilize as there are daily 10-12 avalanches / snow slides happening between baltal and Zojila pass. So, they do not want to risk the lives of people. It is expected to open between 10-15 May.

Thank you so much Saroj (@Saroj29) for coming forward and showing your interest in participation in DoW Causes. There are many shops in Leh Main Market where stationary is available, you can buy from there. Also, you can refer: How can I carry out DoW Causes

@saroj29, DoW group carried out Causes in Changthang last year but you can very well conduct them in Leh, Nubra or Pangong, or wherever you find time.

Stationery shops are in abundance in Leh market so I suggest you buy them on the first/ second day before you head out on your tour. You can buy general items like colours, crayons, colouring books, a set of pens etc and visit any school. Your hotel owners shall help you in locating the local schools. There, meet the principal and explain him/ her the concept of DOW Causes and request them that you wish to distribute these items to the children under their supervision.

Lastly, don't forget to report it back to us :)
