Landslide closes Jammu-Srinagar highway again



Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The Jammu-Srinagar highway was again closed on Thursday due to fresh landslide in Ramsoo-Ramban sector, a day after it opened for stranded traffic.

The fresh landslides occurred at Mom Passi around 11 p.m. on Wednesday.

An official said that the landslide clearance operation has started.

“No vehicular traffic will be allowed till the landslide debris are cleared,” he said.

On Wednesday around 250 vehicles including trucks carrying petroleum products, had crossed the Mom Passi to reach the valley.

Officials in Srinagar said the supply position of petroleum products including diesel, petrol and LPG has eased now.
