    It should be open around that time, in fact, it may already be open. A Devil is traversing this route, so we should know in a couple of days :)

    Hi,

    Today I returned leh from zanskar. Road after parkachik is in bad condition but doable. Try to stay at rangdum instead of parkachik especially for bikers. In the evening water crossing will be at peak. From rangdum to parkachik you will be riding on river bed. Try to reach before evening.

    At padum, stayed at Alpine Guest house or more of a home stay and highly recommended.

    Hey hit road,

    No need to pre-book. Alpine huts of j&k govt and home stays are available.

    Carry extra pairs of socks if going on bike.
