The current Sach Pass status is closed from both Killar and Bairagarh sides. The road was declared closed for vehicular traffic in the month of October. A check post has been set up at Bairagarh and no vehicles are allowed beyond that. From the Keylong side, the road is accessible only until Killar.
Similarly, the road from Tandi to Kishtwar via Killar is closed as well. As of now, the Sinthan top is open and you can travel to Kishtwar but cannot cross Sach to get to Killar and Tandi. Planning a trip to Sach Pass is only open next year after June.
The road can open early as well but it will depend on how fast the snow-clearing operation progresses and the amount of snow. Historically though, this road is cleared only after the 15th of May. Sometimes, if the snowfall continues, it can get delayed until June as well.
If you are planning on visiting Sach Pass next year, then I recommend taking a look at the following posts for information on how you can best plan your trip.
