    Snowfall this year has been greater than expected. The entire region is buried under several feet of snow. For now, do not expect the Manali Kaza road and Chandratal to open any sooner than early June. For people planning a winter ride to Spiti, please ensure that you pack and prepare well. Be ready for some very harsh and cold weather ahead.

    Snow this year has been far greater than in last few ones. The recent snowstorm in early Feb has seen massive amount of snow all across Himalayas. There is also a lot of rainfall near the foot hills which is making the matters worse. If you are planning a winter ride to Spiti this month or next, make sure you are riding solo and not with a pillion. If you were planning to drive to Spiti, then it would be better to do so in a 4x4 vehicle. Snow Bringing snow chains for both a motorcycle and a car would be wise.
