    Like previous years, this will remain to be a dedicated thread for status of the road across Sach Pass.

    Sach Pass as of now remains to be closed for the season. Historically, Sach Pass is usually the last one to be declared open and first one to close. The trend has continued in this year as well. After the surprising snowfall in September this year, Sach Pass was closed for a few days. Later it was opened for a few more days and some people did manage to cross it over on motorcycles. But due to the high amount of snow at the top, it was indeed very risky. A few days later, in early October, the pass was declared off limits for all kind of traffic. The Satrundi check post has been moved back to Bairagarh and as of now, that is the farthest you can go.

    Similarly, Tandi, Killar, Kishtwar route is completely closed as well. If a trip here was on your mind in coming few weeks or days, it would be best to give up the idea and plan it only after June next year.
