    This will remain to be a dedicated thread for Srinagar Leh Highway status in the year 2019. As the winter season progresses and ends, I will continue updating the status of the highway, approximate opening date and condition of the road here.

    The highway has remained closed for last 3 days and it is unlikely that it will reopen for traffic now. It has been snowing at Zoji La and even Sonamarg has also received its first snowfall for the season.

    Even though the road isn't yet officially closed yet, I will strongly advise against traveling this way for now. It is now just a matter of days before an official announcement is made closing the road for all vehicle movement. Traveling on the road now is risky as well as a gamble. It may open for a few more days or it may not open at all.

    I agree. Even if it does open then not really safe to be traveling right now.

    Srinagar Leh highway has been opening and closing for last few days. Sometimes it just opens for a few hours to let the traffic pass on a daily basis. It is only a matter of days before it is declared closed for this season.

    Closed for all kind of movement, either by foot or in a vehicle. Military won't allow you to go beyond the check post.
