After the restoration of the Sumdho-Kaza-Gramphu road via Kunzum Pass in tribal district Lahaul Spiti, the BRO today achieved another feat by reopening the Darcha-Shinkula-Padum road. This road connects Lahaul Spiti in Himachal to Ladakh in the Zanskar valley.
The BRO has restored this road this year one month earlier as compared to previous years. The opening of the crucial road will provide easy access to tourists as well as common people to the Zanskar valley.
According to BRO sources, due to high altitude, Shinkula and its nearby areas receive heavy snowfall during the winter season every year, which blocks this road for the traffic movement completely for months.
This year the BRO has restored all important routes much earlier as compared to previous years. The Manali-Leh highway or Sumdho-Kaza-Gramphu road and now Darcha-Shinkula-Padum road in Lahaul Spiti have been cleared of snow and thrown open to traffic.
