Here is a piece of good news for anyone who was planning a trip to Ladakh this year, Manali-Leh highway has finally been reopened for the year 2014. There are however still reports of snow at both Rohtang and Baralacha La. Road is currently open only to light motor vehicles as authorities clear out the road and make it stable. It is best however to avoid traveling on this highway for next couple of weeks because there is still a high chance that it may get closed for a few more days If found dangerous to be driving on. Expect damaged and poor road conditions for another few weeks until BRO starts the restoration work.
