Kargil Zanaskar road reopens after about 5 months

The Kargil-Zanaskar road in Ladakh region reopened today after remaining closed due to snowfall during winter months. Officer on Special Duty (OSD) Aamir Ali in the office of Divisional Commissioner Kashmir said the road was put through, which connects Zanaskar with its district headquarters Kargil, a border town on Srinagar-Leh national highway.

The local administration has deployed sophisticated machines and men to work to clear the snow on the road which was closed in December last year due to heavy snowfall.

Snow clearance operation was going on the Srinagar-Leh highway which was also closed for traffic since December 1 last year due to heavy snowfall at Zojila pass.

The BEACON authorities have almost cleared the snow on the highway.

The road will be reopened for civilian traffic later this month.
