The road was blocked after landslides occurred at different points. According to ISPR, the highway had been blocked at 20 points on the route from Tata Pani to Raikot.

Gilgit-Baltistan received heavy rainfall from July 20 onwards, which led to landslides and flooding. Tourists stuck on the highway were instructed to wait in Chilas till the road was cleared.
