After a long wait of eight months, bus services from Keylong to Lahaul and from Spiti district to Leh in Ladakh resumed on Sunday.

Services were interrupted on this route in Himachal Pradesh during winters. This morning Keylong Sub-Division Officer Priya Nagta reported the bus carrying 17 passengers as this year the snow cleared a month and a half earlier than usual.

The bus is decided to facilitate the direct travel of people from Delhi to Leh via Keylong, in two shifts from Keylong to Leh and from Leh to Delhi.

It will depart from Keylong, daily at 5 am to cover its 365 km to Leh, followed by a 1026 km course from Leh to Delhi.

In 2021, bus services started on July 1. The Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) has announced the fare price, for each passenger, from Keylong to Delhi at Rs 2,398 (Rs.658 from Keylong to Leh and Rs 1,740 from Leh to Delhi).

The Keylong to Leh bus service has resumed service after an 8 month winter break. (ANI)
