    ROAD UPDATE, 19. August 2019:
    Heaviest rain in Shimla/Manali area in 70 years has caused landslides and washed bridges away.
    The 'Spiti Circuit' has been closed for days and the Rohtang pass has only just opened for locals only.
    Consequently the 'Manali to Leh Highway' is also closed (including a bridge washout in Koksar, the other side of Rohtang pass).
    .
    UPDATE: the Manali to Leh highway has just been opened as of 8am Tuesday, 20. August, local time.
    The Spiti Circuit is still closed with a landslide near Gramphoo and the road washed away at Kaza. Estimated time to fix: 2 days.
