Manali: Bombarded with phone calls and emails about road conditions in Kullu-Manali valley following the recent cloud burst and flash floods, Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) managing director Lokender Chauhan stated that there was no damage to the Kullu-Manali highway.
He further said that traffic was regularly plying on the Manali-Leh highway and normalcy had returned on the route that is popular with tour operators and trekkers during this time of the year.

The Manali – Leh tours that started on July 1 would be in operation till September 15, he said.
With monsoon time being an off season period, HPTDC hotels in Kullu, Manali, Naggar and Keylong are offering 25 % tariff discounts.
