Section 144 in the mountain areas and what to do in such situations
Section 144 imposed in Kasol, Manikaran and Jari areas as Kullu administration is all set to seal the illegal hotels/restaurants and to stop drug trading. Section 144 has been imposed for an indefinite period starting from June 25th, 2018.
Everyone travelling towards that area please confirm and re-confirm your hotel bookings to avoid inconvenience.
Many hotels are operating with more inventories then they have registered with. Some hotels are registered as homestays where the maximum rooms allowed is 6 but operating with more then 15-20 rooms. But there is nothing to worry if you are planning through operators like ScoutMyTrip. ScoutMyTrip operates with hotels which are properly registered with HPTDC and operating on fully regulated policies. There are lot many places in HP which are beautiful, offbeat, unaffected by the section 144 and also there is nothing to panic when you're planning the trip through renowned operators / companies.
