Baralacha La however still remains closed hence it is not possible to reach Leh via Manali Route. There are reports that Srinagar Leh Highway may soon reopen however it may take a few more weeks for Manali Leh route to open.

Since the pass has just opened, it may take a couple of more weeks for authorities to clear the road and announce it safe for general public. It is advised to still avoid going towards Spiti or Lahaul Valley via Rohtang.
