The current Sach Pass status 2022 is open from both Killar and Bairagarh sides. Due to the less amount of snow this year, the road was cleared way ahead of schedule. Usually, it is by early June that the pass becomes accessible but this year, it was declared open in the last week of April itself.
Do keep in mind though that the road across Sach Pass is always a serious challenge. There is still a lot of snow along the route and the condition of the road is bad. I will strongly advise waiting a few weeks before you plan your trip.
If you are planning on visiting Sach Pass next year, then I will recommend taking a look at the following posts for information on how you can best plan your trip.
