A few vegetable trucks have reached Ladakh and people are really happy about it here. I don't know if regular bus or taxi traffic is allowed over Zoji-La pass yet, though.

Hi, sorry for asking something outside the core topic of the thread, but how are the snow conditions around Ladakh at the moment? Is the markha valley already trekkeable? Are the guesthouses there open?

Cheers

Not much snow visible from down here in the Indus Valley in Leh area, but I don't know about the pass at Nyimaling at the top of Markha Valley. I'm sure the homestays are open in the rest of Markha Valley though, since they are run by families in their own houses. Once you are in Leh it would be easy to ask around. And it's perfectly nice to trek right back down Markha Valley if you can't go up over Nyimaling.
