Snow packed Manali-Leh road opens up for tourists
Tourists rejoiced, as the snow-packed route of Manali to Leh in Jammu and Kashmir, was opened up till Keylong Pass by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO). The scenic route with snow-capped mountains connects Manali with ‘world’s highest desert’ of Leh. The route stretches to 472 km. with serene landscape. The snow-clearing operation was held by four BRO teams at Rohtang Pass today. As the rest of the country faces summer heat, tourists trickle into Jammu and Kashmir to enjoy the pleasant weather that would prevail.
