Hello Dheeraj,

I will be traveling with my family to Leh via Srinagar on 10 Sept. Heard about the heavy rainfall in Srinagar. Will the road route via Kargil be open by this time.

Mandar, best person to tell you will be drivers running Srinagar - Leh on day to day basis or some hotel in Sonamarg. Call few drivers mentioned in the list of drivers article in the ladakh travel guide in my signature below.

Hello Dheeraj,

I will be traveling with my buddies to Leh via Srinagar on 10 Sept by bike. Do you recommend bike ride from Srinagar to Leh in current situation? :o Or we should change our plan and go by cab? :cry: Or completely drop plans for Leh expedition :shock: :cry:

Just called up driver in Srinagar, Jammu - Srinagar Highway is still closed. Srinagar - Kargil is closed at Zojila Pass. It might reopen tomorrow but no news on Srinagar - Jammu road to reopen. Kargil to Leh is open.

Manali - Leh Highway is open despite passes having snow but bad state between northern Portal of Rohtang Pass and Keylong.

Dheeraj - we are flying to Srinagar on 12th from Chennai and was planning to start from there to Let on 14th Step. Do you think the roads will get opened and will get better by then? Or should I Cancel the tickets?

@Vidhya, welcome to DoW Community !!

Coming days are a bit clear weather and I feel things will be normal in just couple of days as it stops raining at least from Srinagar to Kargil. The army traffic movement was done today at Zojila, so things certainly improved for last few days. Hence, I think you keep hooked here and watch the status as it comes. By 10th / 11th you can decide, which I feel the situation will not come.
