BRO : Manali-Leh Opens , 2010

This could get interesting : hundreds of jeeps and bikers are poised to set off as the Manali-Leh Highway finally (?) is about to be thrown open tomorrow, according to SK Doon of the BRO :

..snow clearance operation was almost over and the highway was made motorable for light vehicles only.

‘In the next few days, heavy vehicles would also be allowed to ply on the highway,

At the same time a severe weather warning from India Metereological Department mentions “heavy to very heavy ” rainfall in Himachal Pradesh , culminating in two days from now.

The official road marker at still shows the road as closed , now in the evening shown as open .

Meanwhile the weather : continous rain all day reported from Shimla , buses not running over the Rothang from Manali for the same reason . Stok Kangri is not visible from Leh.
