No one can predict the future, but GENERALLY Rohtang is open during that time. If there's sudden snowfall like has happened now, that you'll only come to know on the day.

I've answered your Q about weather in your other thread, this one is for roads/traffic only.

Road Conditions and safety till Manali

Hi, we're a group of six on three Bullets planning to ride from Bombay to Manali next week. We wanted to know how safe is the ride, considering we have 3 female pillion riders. We're planning to ride in daylight. Particularly the safety in Rajasthan (Udaipur-Jodhpur-Nagaur-Fatehpur), Haryana (Hissar-Ambala) and the weather in Himachal (till Kullu), any leads will be deeply appreciated.

Regards

Joplin

I arrived yesterday in Shimla from Tabo.
I travelled by bus. The road is awful, but can be done.
Malling was blocked and I had to cross it by foot, but it is quite easy. Luckily my backpack was sent to the other side by cable!!! :D
When I left Tabo on Sept 28th the road to Kaza was still closed.
