Zanskar-Kargil road not open yet

In an unexpected turn of events, snowfall on the night of the 15th April hampered the operation of both Zanskar-Kargil and Kargil-Srinagar roads. The Zoji La was reported to be cleared and open by midday on the 16th, however the opening of the Pensi-La (which does not benefit from the snow clearing resources assigned to the Kargil-Kashmir link) has now been delayed somewhat. It looks like Zanskaris are going to have to wait for those fresh vegetables!
