Rothang cleared again , many stranded beyond Koksar

Mandi, July 8
Though the tourist traffic has been restored on the Chandigarh-Manali National Highway-21 via the left bank from the Ramshila bridge, the 460-km-long Manali-Keylong-Leh road remained breached beyond Koksar in the Lahaul valley, keeping over 300 tourists, including over 15 foreigners, stranded between Koksar and Keylong and Bara La Cha and Serchu towards Leh for the third day today.

According to reports received here, snowfall has triggered a series of landslides that have breached the Manali-Keylong-Leh NH-21 at several places.

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has opened the Rohtang pass, clearing the road till Stingri, near Koksar, today.
