While the official declaration of the Manali-Leh highway being open for traffic is still a few days away, fellow BCMTian has managed to find out that the traffic is flowing on the Manali – Leh highway, though at this moment it is only small vehicles i.e. taxis.
So the Ladakh 2009 season has finally started, all the Leh hopefuls, pack your bags :).
