  1. This is really horrific. Thank you for the visual. One Headlines Today report said that Manali-Rothang highway closed. I’m not very experienced with how things unfold here in this part of the world, though I had a plan traveling on 20 Manali-Leh. Would like to know how you’re looking into these – how soon things could get normal or even the highway could open, considering ’if’ no more wreckage happens very soon again.

    Thank you.

  3. Hi! I have been wondering where you get all your updates from? :-) anyway I have some friends on a mountain biking tour – hope they make it. thanks Vistet.


  4. Hi Roshni !
    This probably means I´ve been sloppy with quotes …
    Nine tenths of everything here is about sifting good online resources : I read the news every day , I crosscheck with weather sources and make a very hard culling from forums : posters I´ve learned to trust over the years – preferably those that post photos as well. The final piece is a limited number of direct contacts over the year.
