Rothang opens , -99

The 13,050 foot high Rohtang Pass, the gateway to Lahaul and Spiti, was reopened to vehicular traffic here today after a gap of five months. Rohtang Pass, which closed in mid-November is usually opened only in June. But this year snow-clearing operation commenced on February 21 against March in other years.

With the early opening snow-clearing on the Keylong-Sarchu stretch (Manali-Leh road) can also pick up momentum and the road to Leh may also open earlier.
