Yes, Now the able walkers can go to Tidang in one day from Dharchula covering the distance by jeep upto Sela and then walk.
Anyone planning to go to Darma valley and Panchachuli base camp this year?

The Motorable road in Darma Valley

Now the road has reached Nagling village. And the work is on beyond that towards Baling. Almost crossed the greater Himalalayan Range. So the trek distance to Panchachuli BC is shorter by 15 km. Mind you, it's not an all weather road.

And after Baling it's easy terrain. Next year it will reach Duktu...the village from which Panchachuli base camp is only 4 km. So it's possible to visit PCBC and come back to Dharchula in a day, if one wishes. But who wants to forego the pleasures of trekking in a remote valley? May be some bikers who want "been there, done that" kind of adventures on a new road ?

Looks like as though one is at Sangam Chatty on the way to Dodital. Himalayas can be confusing and confounding and that is the wonderful thing about these ranges.You never know where you are, if you forget your location

Road now reaches Tidang in Darma valley

As a part of Border Areas Development Project ( BADP ), now the motorable road is now extended upto Tidang, in Darma Valley.
Needless to say this is operational only during Non monsoon and Non snowy season of the year.
Our neighbour across the Himalaya is now clearly rattled by this determined Indian initiative to extend infrastructure upto the Tibetan border.

Here is the picture taken at Duktu in May,2017.
