Road to Rohtang Pass
Manali is the gateway to Rohtang pass beyond which lie the twin valley of Lahaul and Spiti. In winter the mountain slopes are snow clad and they turn into perfect skiing slopes. This point is one of the main attraction for tourists coming to Manali. The Rohtang pass is 51 KM north of Manali and it is located on Manali Keylong Highway at an altitude of 4111 meters ( 13,400 ft ). This pass opens for tourist from April end to October end of the year. The permission to travel on this highway is given by Indian army after they clear the snow and inspect the road for it's fitness and safety for movement of person and the vehicles. The same road connects to Leh Ladakh ( State of Jammu & Kashmir ) from Manali ( state of Himachal Pradesh). Sonepani Glacier and a small lake (Dashahr) are located opposite and left to Rohtang respectively.

The main attraction for tourist at Rohtang pass is snow and the scenic beauty of the area. The road is very narrow near the Rohtang pass and the parking of vehicles is very difficult and one has to be very alert while parking the vehicles because slight distraction may be hazardous. Hence it is advisable to come here very early in the morning and stay upto afternoon and starts returning once the traffic gets clear. But if you start late to visit here then you may have to walk a bit or take help of horse to reach the peak point. Walking here is not a big problem but not advisable for elderly persons or small kids. It can be a 15 to 30 minutes walk depending on the traffic to reach the snow point from the parking area. The safest and the easiest way to reach the snow point is by horse ride but it is a bit costly ride, but elderly and the small children can comfortably use this service. The horse man charges around Indian Rupees 400 per trip ( both ways ) per horse. Marhi snow point before Rohtang passTourists plan their trip in early hours to reach Rohtang very early to avoid traffic and reach at the snow point, at the same time it is equally difficult to return as all vehicles way down as to be clear the road. So going early mean returning late from there. Some time this may not be a good options for families with kids to stay long time in cold conditions. So other option is to start late and take the help of horses ( or walk ) to reach the top.

All types of food stuff, coffee and drinks are available at Rohtang pass and these are sold by local people. The weather here is highly unpredictable and it does not take much time for the bright sun shine to change over to moderate to heavy snow fall. The shop owners have provided some temporary sheds for the benefit of tourists/visitors to take shelter in case of sudden change of weather.

hi people,we made the trip to manali in 1973 and we walked up the pass,it took 2 days.we stayed 1 night with a mongolian? family we think they were working on the road,very kind hospitable people it only cost us a couple rupees for bed and evening meal.what a fabulous experience we will never forget it.stunning scenery and wonderful people.we reccomend it to all.it will cost a bit more now and there is more people but hey thats progress.

Arjun Puri 13-07-2009
I visited Manali from 10th june to 14th june 2009 really manali is wonderful place to visit, great crowd, good people, good quality hotels and we didn't face any problem of foods as there are many punjabi hotels. all of the above Rohtang pass was great that huge mountains covered with snow great site really it is like heaven. Best time to go to Rohtang from Manali in peak season is in the morning because later in the day heavy traffic jams can cost you 3-4 hours so, go and enjoy

During my excursion trip to Manali with wife and other family friends from 11th June 2010 onwards I visited rohtang pass but due to some glacier the road leading to rohtang was closed and therefore we enjoyed our return journey near a beautiful fall and snow clad mountains of rohtang pass. It was all amazing and mind blowing environment. The weather was cold unlike Delhi where hot summers spell is still continuing.We enjoyed the journey to our heart and soul. Thanks to nature.

Veena Jauhry12-07-2010
June, 2010 : Our Journey to Manali and Rohtang Pass was memorable and no one can emagine the joy and satisfaction of mind one got after visiting Rahatang pass. As a matter fact, it is my wish that, the journey of life should start at the snow clad mountains of rohtang pass and end there in a way the God proposes. It is so enjoying and full of warmth experience there that it is impossible to explain the same in words. Every one, should at least once visit Manali and Rohtang pass. Have a happy journey to Rohtang Pass and of course Manali too.See u there. Bye.

Hi All,
Me and my friends visited manali in the month of august. IT was just a horrible trip because of the bad weather conditions. It was monsoon season in Manali,It was all raining despite of the heavy rainfall and landslides we went to Rohtang and got Struck there for Two days. So my suggestion to all is not to visit Manali or rohtang July and August because of heavy rainfall.

Hi...FRIEÑDZ
Me and my 20 college friendz went to Manali on 22nd oct.2010,and believe me it was most memorable day of my life coz it was kojagiri poornima spent at MANALI.
My dream of snowplay & snowslide came true at ROHTANG.
There were devdaar tree,huge rocks & water bodies fully covered with snow.It was a white HEAVEN of my living life.

Though we were cought in heavy snowfall in evening at rohtang,we all friendz enjoyed snowslide,skying & walking over a white carpet for 2hrs with company of fullmoon in d sky.
ya... never skip a cup of coffee in this cold & romantic weather with ur friendz or may be partner/loved once...it really works.

Jayanta Sarkar01-01-2011
I had visited Simla, Kulu, Manali & Rohtang Pass thrice in past during Aug to Oct in 1984, 1989 and 1992. My experience was no less joyful than others who shared their experience in this column. I also visited the same places between 11th Oct and 17th October 2010. It was totally disappointing, especially the ROHTANG PASS. There was not even a single flake of snow and no trace of any Glacier. The effect of Global Warming !!! I think we are approaching disatser in very near future.

In summer rohtang is totally covered with snow while throghout the year we find snow there. Avoid to go aftr mid of july bcoz of landscapping due to monsoon. Solang valley is on the way of rohtang is also an awesome place. In manali, 3-4 famous temples, MG road, guest house(famous 4 games). Katrain, 20 kms before manali, marvelous place to spend your time in the outskirts of manali. Just check it out!

sana12-07-2011
We went to manali on 09.07.2011,the weather is awesome,neither excessive cold,nor excessive raining.although on 6th,7th and 8th there was continuous rain in Manali. We started for Rohtang Pass but coudnt reach there because of the landslides that has taken place due to rain,vehicles were struck on the way.so all the tourists were diverted to Mani.it was also very nice place- sort of a glacier,7000 feet height.Skeeing,tube rides etc were there.
Regarding the climate-one can wear full length shirts or hardly one sweater. That is enough.Important information - local people were saying,all the rides like river rafting etc will be closed from 15.7.2011, because of the monsoon.
So guys if you are planning a vacation,do it fast. Its really awesome place to visit.
radhakrishnan17-07-2011

jitu24-11-2011
Hi priya, Actually december is the perfect time to be in manali. M sure u will enjoy the snowfall. It doesnt snow much in manali, and it is occasionally in the month of jan, that snow reaches manali. You will travel little high till gulaba or much higher to find snow. Beleive me its a different and beautiful experience to be in manali in the month of Dec or Jan. U can move out of room, but of course dont forget to carry heavy woolens. There is a good hotel by the name of johnsons lodge.

If the eyes close, open the pocket and have good mood to go for anywhere in the world will be happy tour. The peoples are coopretive and less bargaining in comparison of other places.

ANUP GUPTA27-05-2012
hi friends,
had to Kullu/manali for a week (18-5 to 25/5) and ud advice with my experience to avoid visiting these places during the season as during the rush days yu wud be exploited by the locals( At Marhi, bfore rohtang) charging what we cannot even think of .The mall road looks more of a busy street in the Metro during the season where yu are devoid of enjoing the natures beauty.
Do not pre book the hotel as yu can get good bargains at the hotels directally.Enjoy this place by visitng during off season
