Finally, Kullu administration has started issuing permits to cross rohtash for tourists as well. Till yesterday, it was restricted to locals of Lahaul and Spiti only.

The permits can be applied for at http://admis.hp.nic.in/ngtkullu/

This year, the administration has also started a mobile app (Android and iOS) for permits. The same for Android can be installed from https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... tangpermit

As per latest update received couple of hours ago, there has been a fresh bout of snowfall and hence Baralacha La is closed again. Hopefully the road will be cleared and it will be operational by tomorrow afternoon.

Here's a pic of Baralacha La clicked day-before

The road from Batal to Chandratal has been opened yesterday. However, the route is difficult at the moment and manageable only on a 4x4 vehicle. It should be fine in a couple of days. The camps at Chandratal will be operational in a week or so. This is as per latest update from Jamaica who has visited there yesterday itself and sent us the very first pictures of Chandratal from this season..

Relish the pics!
