Manali and Leh Connected By Nimmu-Padam-Darcha Road

  • BRO connected the strategic Nimmu-Padam-Darcha road in Ladakh on March 25, 2024. 
  • The 298-km road connects Manali to Leh via Darcha and Nimmu on the Kargil – Leh Highway. 
  • The third axis connecting Ladakh to the hinterland is the road, following Manali-Leh and Srinagar-Leh.
  • The road is shorter than the other two axes and crosses only one pass, Shinkun La, which will undergo tunnel work by BRO. 
  • The connectivity will strengthen defense preparedness and boost economic development in the Zanskar Valley.
