The district administration and Boarder Roads organizations in a joint decision have decided to close down the Manali Leh Highway at Jispa after 1600 hours everyday. The decision has been taken after receiving feedback from commuters about the rough condition of the road around Baralacha pass. As per complaints by commuters that the road is not suitable to be driven in evening or wee hours.
