The Hush Post: If you are planning a trip to Manali or beyond you should not. Due to a massive landslide, Chandigarh-Manali highway has been blocked. The landslide took place at 11:00 pm on Friday night. Since then there has been a 10 km traffic jam on both sides of the landslide.
The landslide took place at Barnala near Aut. The highway is blocked for the past 12 hours. Though, the police and crisis management teams are already on the spot. But it seems that it could take another four to five hours to open the highway. Many ambulances on way from Chandigarh to Manali were also stuck in the traffic.
Earlier as well there were two cloudbursts in Manali in July. In one of them, five four-wheeler vehicles and a motorbike were washed away. Then too the Chandigarh-Manali National Highway was closed as a result of this cloudburst.
