Historically, Sach Pass is usually the last pass to be declared open sometime in the month of June. It is also the first one to receive snow and get closed by late September or early October. Same trend followed this year as well. After the surprising snowfall across Spiti and Pangi Valley in September this year, Sach Pass was closed for a few days due to heavy amount of snow at the top. It was opened a few days later but all the snow and resulting slush was making it too risky to get across. As a result, it was again declared closed for the season. The check post at Satrundi was moved back to Bairagarh and that is as far as you can currently go.
Similarly, the road from Tandi to Kishtwar via Killar is closed as well. As of now, Sinthan top is open and you can travel to Kishtwar but cannot cross Sach to get to Killar and Tandi. As of now, planning a trip to Sach Pass is only open next year after June.
