50 vehicles stranded on Leh highway

Srinagar, November 13
The entire Ladakh region remained cut off from the rest of Jammu and Kashmir via land route for the second consecutive day today due to a heavy snowfall at various places along the 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh National Highway since last evening.

The road would be officially closed for vehicular traffic for six winter months from November 15.

About 8 to 10 inches of snowfall has been recorded at Zojilla and other places along the highway. Heavy snow triggered landslides at many places along the highway forcing its closure at India Gate, near Zojilla. About 50 vehicles were stranded between India Gate and Baltal along the highway.
