Taxi and Hotel associations claimed that more than 450 tourists, including foreigners, who have abandoned their vehicles on the the highway at several places due to snow and have taken shelter in camps and tents at Zing Zing Bar and Serchu.
They alleged that after the heavy snowfall, Grampu -Kaza road closed down and 80 to 90 tourists who came from Kaza in Spiti on Sunday were stranded at Grampu Batal and Chatru on the Kaza-Grampu road yet to be rescued.
