Srinagar: The Srinagar-Ladakh highway, which was to be closed for vehicular traffic on October 31, will now remain open till November 21। “Due to better weather condition, the government has decided to keep the road open till November 21”, Satish Nehru, DC Kargil, told PBI. He said, the stocking of essentials in the twin district is 95 per cent complete. The highway is considered as one of deadliest routes in the world as the road passes through some of the highest mountains, dangerous curves and a difficult Zojila pass.
