Road collapsing at Nigulsari affects return travel of Buran Ghati and Rupin Pass trekkers

A 100 m section of road at Nigulsari in Uttarakhand collapsed due to a landslide. This section lies on the route to Shimla which is taken by both Rupin Pass and Buran Ghati trekkers.

The restoration work is in progress, and the Nisulgaru patch is likely to be rebuilt in the next few days. The local authorities are keeping a close eye on the progress, as this is a busy route.

If not re-built in time, this would affect the return travel for Buran Ghati and Rupin Pass trekkers who are scheduled to return on this route by next week.

Drive to Janglik for Buran Ghati trekkers

"Road condition from Rohru to Janglik is good except for one patch close to Janglik where the bridge was washed away by the Sundru stream (which later merges with Pabbar river). A temporary bridge is set up to cross the stream but mules or vehicles cannot cross the stream using this bridge," shares Nishant Kumar, Trek Leader at Indiahikes who is setting up the base for the Buran Ghati trek.

As a result, Buran Ghati trekkers may need to trek 1.78 km to reach the base camp Janglik.

We are keeping a close eye on the road conditions in this region. We will post more updates about it right here.
