Even though Rohtang pass is a must visit for any tourist going to Manali, disappointment sets in when one does find snow there. Last October during Dusshera vacations, we started for Rohtang at 0600 hrs and were among the first few there. On the way we had taken heavy warm(dangri), boots on rent and purchased woolen socks and sun goggles... More

Breathtaking view of the snowy Himalayas. i encountered fresh white snow which is soft and interesting. quad bikes and 4 wheel drive vehicles are available to take you a ride. alternatively one can take a walk. Go with proper precautions like heavy warm cloths, lip balms and moisturizers..

We had visited Manali 2 years back and the main reason was to visit Rohtang pass. It really gets risky when u go up (although only 4 wheel cars are allowed), as the snow on the road makes the car skid. It takes at least 2 hrs to reach top of the peak and once you are there its heaven.... More

Rohtang Pass is around 40 km from Manali on Manali-Leh road. Start early from Manali as the the 40 km drive might take 2-3 hours. The drive is scenic and you would enjoy the journey. The road is slightly convoluted but the journey is enjoyable never the less. Beware of the numerous touts/ shopkeepers selling/renting warm clothes, boots for snow,... More

The valley of Kullu which includes Manali & Rohtang are attraction for visitors. Here I would like to communicate what to do during extreme snow when you are at Manali- 1) Never go towards higher altitudes area & better to stay near to your hotel. Manali is safest place even during heaviest snow fall, so never afraid of snow. 2)... More

The Rohtang Pass should be visited early morning when the air is crisp and the views are clear. Nowadays the road to the pass is in excellent condition with only a few stretches without tarmac. Be prepared when you go because it can be cold and windy. Also the altitude can be a problem for some people. But the views... More
