    Mode of transport for reaching Leh and back to Chandigarh : 1 Zoomcar (Scorpio - Diesel) and 1 own Hyundai i20 Active (Petrol).

    Hey Sujith, trust you're doing good.
    I'm more than sure that's incorrect information :) I have my friends who are residents of Manali, who have confirmed that this route is open. Also, we're tracking the Rohtang permit website , for daily passes issued and the numbers look promising, which is a sign that vehicles are being allowed to ply on this route. Further, we've called a few of the home stays and hotels in Keylong and they all have confirmed that they have bookings till mid Oct this year, and that tourists are plying on this highway all fine. They further confirmed that November 15 is the official date post which BRO and HP administration will not clear the road if it snows or in case of landslides. Prior to November 15, they will keep clearing the roads in case of snow and landslides alike. Sarchu is closed for sure. They operate max till 15th Sep.

    However, given that Sep end and Oct begin is like the cusp of end of summers and beginning of winters, it can sure snow if weather becomes inclement, but again like i mentioned that till November 15 BRO and HP guys will engage in clearing the roads for vehicles to ply.

    It is only the bus service that was suspended for the season. Road is still open for cabs and private vehicles.

    Nope, it has ended for the year now, will only resume next year. You will have to rely on shared cabs now.
