_____ tunnel will ensure Ladakh’s year-round connectivity.
- Taglang la
- Chang la
- Zoji la
Currently, Leh is connected to the rest of the country by Srinagar-Leh Highway and Manali-Leh Highway, both of which are closed for about 6 months due to heavy snowfall and threat of avalanches.
The 14 km Zoji la tunnel could be a game changer for the economy and socio-cultural integration of Ladakh since it will allow year-round connectivity to the region. It will be the longest bi-directional road in Asia and would serve as an important route for army movement in the region.
