Sringar – Leh highway reopens for 2010!

It looks like 2010 Ladakh travel season is going to begin a little early this year, as the Srinagar – Leh highway has been reopened after being closed for over 5 months (link)!

While this is great news for those who want to head to Ladakh as soon as possible, this also means that this year it has snowed quite less and summers have come a bit early, a bad news for those residing in the Himalayas and also in the plains (less snow = less water).

A word of caution for all those who are planing to head to Ladakh ASAP! As of now only the first convoy has gone ahead and that means the pass isn’t officially open for tourists and can close down in case there is heavy snowfall in the coming days.
