Seeing last night's performance, starting right from Jodhpur where heavy rains lashed killing 3, the western disturbances seem to have already visited.

If it dumps snow on Rohtang, the opening will be in Mid may. If not, then due to exceptionally hot temperatures the opening may happen April end.
This was hilarious...

@diezel: The route is great. Dont worry there is a cease fire these days and they wont take any potshots at you. The road is bad up Zozila and is treacherous to say the least.Will see if I have any pics of the route because we made a whole damn movie which covers like 4 cds. When do you plan to do the route? I will be in Pune around 7th June and if you want can carry a cd of the entire Zozila-Leh route for you.

yaar, that whole enemy thing is bakwaas propoganda of the highest order. There's like ONE peak that is visible all through (can someone help with the name), which must be like 4-5km crow fly distance. Yeah in an ideal world they can shoot at vehicles, but neither is anything happening, and in the non-ideal world if things are bad, then their infiltrators will come across and shoot directly too So till then, chill.

Zoji la is overrated unless you count slush/mud (but not eonugh to get stuck) and lots of flowing water as treacherous. It is just downright irritating since its one lane (one way traffic) and you cant overtake. bas. As a biker, I went hopping mad because all the trucks/buses were like belching black smoke and there were just too many of them. as a car guy, just chill and turn up the volume

Default Sam's disturbance

Or, you can bring your own West Disturbance. Just ask Sam Kapasi.

I clearly remember that a few years ago you had to pass that sector with headlights off at night. Things may have cooled down now

Yes, 2003 was terrible in the Kargil-Dras-Zoji La sector, but in 2004 they were great roads till Dras.
