Beautiful view Spiti Valley in Winters

Kunzum Pass and Rohtang are both on the Manali Kaza route. Both these passes are known to receive a heavy amount of snow each year. Due to this, the entire Manali – Spiti Valley stretch remains buried under snow in the winter season.

Chandratal is also located on this stretch and gets closed from late October to early June.

Shimla to Spiti Valley Road Status:

Contrary to common belief, the road from Shimla to Spiti Valley actually remains open throughout the year. There could be temporary closure in the winter season if it snowed heavily anywhere on the route. But the authorities clear the snow just as soon as they are able to restore the connectivity.

So starting from Shimla, you can actually visit Spiti valley at any time of the year. The only catch is that between November to May, you will have to keep Chandratal and the entire Manali Kaza stretch off your itinerary.

Manali to Spiti Valley Road Status:

As a tourist, consider the road from Manali to Kaza as closed for this year. I would strongly advise against risking a journey on this stretch now. Blizzards and sudden heavy snowfall in this area are way too common.

Do not forget that you will also be crossing two high-altitude passes to get out and if that did not happen, you will be stuck for good. There have been instances when tourists were caught in blizzards at places like Batal and Chhota Dhara and had to be airlifted out. And yes, there have been casualties as well so do not take the risk.

Kunzum Pass Road Status:

The status of Kunzum Pass as of today is open from both Shimla and Manali side.

Manali Spiti Road Status 2023 - 24

Chitkul Road Status:

The road to Chitkul bifurcates from Spiti Valley highway near Karcham and passes through the beautiful Sangla Valley. This entire stretch as well receives quite a bit of snow each year due to which, it gets cut off from the main highway between November to March.

There have been instances when tourists got stuck in Chitkul and Sangla Valley for several days and had to be airlifted out (there have been casualties as well). So if you wanted to include Chitkul in your itinerary, I will suggest planning a trip after April only.
