While the Manali to Leh route still remains closed, BRO has officially announced the Srinagar Leh route as open for public vehicles. Road conditions however continue to remain poor for a while till BRO finishes up the maintenance work. There is still a lot of snow in the region which means that the road could still be temporarily closed for a few days. Extreme caution is advised while attempting to cross Zoji La in a self owned car if you plan to travel in next couple of weeks.
This marks the opening of travel season to Ladakh region for the year of 2014.
