  • Words can’t describe this place. Just see the images. If you are lucky you will experience good snowfall. (Make sure you go with good taxi driver who can drop you close to snow and not far away from where you will have to take horse etc)
  • This is one of the most beautiful place in Himachal with so many weather variation . I love driving through rotang la in summers . It’s worth the ride . Only issue is that someone new who is travelling the altitude for the first time may face difficulties, mountain sickness is common for new people . Take needed oxygen and medication while travelling via this route .
  • Best place on earth 1. We need to apply for Rohtang pass to reach there - through online/Rohtang app 2. Best time - May to Sep 4. From Manali it will take 2.5 hours , try leaving early morning so that view will be very good. 5. Snow gold on earth 6. Road and views are very good
  • No words to explain. Simply amazing 🤩Natural beauty. I wish to visit this place in winter also. Roads to reach here was very risky. If anybody is planning to go to rohtang pass they have to apply for permission, if you get it then only you can go to Rohtang La. Both online and offline you can apply. Offline you have to reach there and do the necessary things. Online you can take anytime you can. 550/_ is the payment required. Actually we reached here through Manali - Atal tunnel - Lahaul - Spiti cut. At the check point you have to show the permit and then they will give you a paper which have a seal on it, you should not lose it because the same should be returned at the next check point. The Rohtang pass is open for 6 to 7 months of the year through April, May to October and hence, that becomes the only and the best time to visit Rohtang Pass. Travellers can opt for a lot of adventure sports like mountain biking, skiing, snow scooter riding etc. Some Maggie shops, tea shops and local people who sells Kesar, hand gloves, etc are available here If one is looking for snow at the pass then the best time would be late April and early May, there are giant walls of snow on either side. Post June, the snow starts to reduce and is found only towards the top of the Pass. Roads are of very dangerous curves, steep falls no barricades are there. But the views from the area is never gonna forget, such a mind-blowing place is this. In between the second check point and Rohtang La two Siva temples are there, which gives you amazing memories.
  • I visited on 23rd Oct 2021 and luckily got chance to see live snow fall. Because usually snow fall occurs from Nov to Feb. You can book share taxi or tempo traveller from Manali main market. Many tourist office/shops are there who takes ₹600 per person and take you to Rohtang. Morning 10 am they will pick you from main market and evening 5 pm return in same vehicle. On the way you have to take Waterproof Snow Jacket & gumboot ₹250 for both on rent, because our normal jackets and shoes won't work there, while coming back in evening you have to return it at same place. A gateway to Lahaul and Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh, remains one of the most spectacular destinations in the entire Kullu region. This picturesque pass is located around 51 kms away from Manali, at a height of 3980 meters, on Manali Keylong highway. This mountain slope is so beautiful that people from every corner of the country visit this place to take part in adventure sports such as skiing, ice-skating, paragliding, etc. The Rohtang Pass is open for tourist from April to October and the permission to travel on this highway is given by the Indian Army, once they clear the snow. The Rohtang Pass is the same road, which connects to Leh Ladakh from Manali. On the you can also take a stop at Manali's LAST VILLAGE on Rohtang Pass Highway - Kothi, for best view, also visit at Gulaba & Nehru Kund.
