Leh May Be Accessible Sooner This Year

If you are the adventurous kind and looking to make a road trip to Leh this year by bike, four wheeler or even bus, it is time to start planning and packing.

Border Road Organization has been working on clearning the road (http://www.newkerala.com/one.php?action=fullnews&id=40894)  to Leh, and is expected to re-open much sooner than last year. Zojila pass connecting Shrinagar and Leh was not open until May last year, but is expected to be operational by April 15 (http://www.greaterkashmir.com/full'story.asp?Date=1'4'2008&ItemID=51&cat=1) this time.

For those who are looking to travel to Leh via Manali, the tentative dates for opening Rohtang Pass is not yet announced, but the pass has been partially cleared and pedestrians are allowed to cross over (http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/business/rohtang-pass-opened-to-pedestrians'10028586.html).

Leh is on its way to becoming a year round destination a few years down the line. Work is already underway to construct a tunnel across Rohtang Pass (http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/Work-on-Rohtang-tunnel-to-pick-up-pace/289644/), and a new tunnel is proposed (http://www.thestatesman.net/page.news.php?clid=2&theme=&usrsess=1&id=197502) under Zojila pass to keep Srinagar-Leh road through the year.
