Jammu-Srinagar national highway reopens for traffic after landslide debris cleared

The Jammu-Srinagar national highway was reopened for vehicular traffic on Thursday after a day-long blockade due to landslides in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district, officials said.
The debris following the landslides were cleared at several places in Ramban and Udhampur district after which the highway was reopened for traffic, the officials said.
Over 200 stranded vehicles were allowed to move to their respective destinations towards Jammu and Srinagar, they said.
Intermittent rains also triggered landslides at Panthiyal, Battery Chesma and Morh Passi near Balli Nallah along the National Highway in the district, blocking the road.

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 Amarnath Yatra was also suspended till August 4 (Sunday) as a precautionary measure in the wake of bad weather conditions, they said.
