Like last year, this will be a dedicated post for Srinagar Leh Highway status 2018. I will continue updating the status on opening and closing of the road; along with the road conditions as the year progresses. Apart from the blog post here, I will also start a sticky thread at our Community Forum where other members of the forum can also shared their updates. If you have a more recent update than the one provided here, please do share it either in the comments section below or at the forum post; Srinagar to Leh Road Status 2018
Current Srinagar Leh Highway Status 2018: OPEN
Srinagar Leh highway usually remains open until mid to end November. Last year, the road was operational in December as well. This year too, right now the route is open and is being used by both Indian Army and locals here. Several stretches however, specially the pass en route, have already seen light spells of snow.
Traffic across Zoji La was temporarily suspended earlier this week as snow at Zoji La turned the entire stretch extremely slipper and dangerous to be travelling upon. It is now only a matter of days before the pass gets completely blocked; owing to heavy snowfall and leading to closure of the highway for this year.
If you were planning to traverse on the route anytime soon, I would strongly advise against it. Do not take the unnecessary risk and better plan your trip to Ladakh next year.
I hope the information above on was of help. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask in the comments section below or at our Community Forum and I will be glad to answer.
