To be precise the road will not be opened for another week. Just spoke to my brother who is volunteering there with the relief efforts and he says its been raining heavily and there is no scope of the road opening. However four vehicles of Manali did leave for Sarchu today taking the route from Pangong to Tsomoriri and then to Pang. This is a very dangerous route with no habitation and the Govt. of Leh which is already working hard is not taking any guarantee for rescue if one gets stuck. So my friend i think maybe Spiti is a good place to go instead of Ladakh at the moment.

hi guys,

i'm in manali at the moment and have been trying to get to spitti, but is is proving difficult aswell. a few days ago there were 7 road blocks and a bridge was broken. the latest news i received today is that although the last few days were much better weather wise, it will still take a couple of days as there is not much supply there for food and water, so this is taking priority.

some people have just come back today after being stuck in some places on the way to leh for 1 week, camping in tents etc i don't know the news from the leh end- but looks like 'adventure1' has great first hand info there....

it seems to be clearing up, but still a few days wait if you want to go anywhere.....

goodluck
xxx

yes spiti is also receiving heavy rainfalls, rivers are breaching danger levels, it is not advisable to travel in that area at the moment

With heavy heart and sense of responsibiity I decided to cancel my visit to Leh which was to beging on 13th August. In my opinion it is not be fair to trouble the local people out there who are recovering from their losses and also the Government Agencies who are busy with relif work. May God bless me with a trip next year to Leh.

Official website(leh.nic.in) reports that the alternate route from manali to leh is open and NOT the regularone. By alternate route i assume they mean travelling to leh via chumathang,Tso moriri lake. Have has anyone among us done this routeafter the recent flood.

I am suppose to do this route on bike on 5th sep. Should i go ahead with my plan or cancel it?

thanks in advacne.
