When to drive to Leh




The road from Manali to Leh opens in the middle of July, as the two main passes Rohtang La and Baralacha La are full of snow. To find out the approximate opening date, try this number : 190-2252116, this is the number of the Rohtang Control Room and they will give you the information. If you find this number is not working or if the number has changed, please email me.

It is best to go as soon as the road opens as the road is comparatively good, with potholes due to trucks, minimal. As traffic flows, the road gets bad due to truck tyres. In 2011, the District Administration, stopped plying of vehicles on Rohtang Manali road on each Tuesday, so that the road could be repaired. Do check if this system is still followed.

The road to Leh from Srinagar opens about a month earlier.
