    The snowfall continues across the entire Himalayan region triggering avalanches at several places, specially in the snow-covered valley of Lahaul. The petrol pump at Tandi along with a hot mix plant of a road construction company were destroyed due to avalanches last week. Picture of the petrol pump after avalanche is posted below.

    Widespread and heavy snowfall is causing roads to get blocked and restricting public movement in the rea. The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has started clearing snow from the highways. So far avalanches in Spiti have destroyed two motorable bridges, four dhabas, a Mahila Mandal building, a liquor shop and some machinery. More snowfall is expected in the valley in coming few days. .

    Sir,
    I am planning a trip to Himachal from April 12 to 22. If i were to shift Manali towards the end of the trip itinerary, say April 20. Would I be able to see Rohtang pass by then?

    It is too early to say right now Anas Bhai but there are chances that it may get open by 20th April

    Sharing some pictures of a few more avalanches all across Lahaul, Spiti and Kinnaur Valleys. Received these on a Whatsapp group.

    Looking at the way the weather is trending and amount of snow all around, this will definitely delay the snow clearing operations and opening of the pass.
