The Rohtang Pass is a high-mountain pass on the eastern Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas. At an elevation of 4100 metres above sea level, the Rohtang Pass serves as the gateway to the Lahaul and the Spiti Valleys and connects the Kullu Valley with them, which in turn gives access to Leh-Ladakh and the Pangi valley. The Pass is generally open for tourists from May to September only,depending on the snowfall in the Upper regions.Rohtang Pass has a reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards. The Pass offers beautiful sights of glaciers,peaks,Lahaul valley and the Chandra river, and presents a striking sight of glaciers, mountains and the landscape.
We were destined to visit Manali a few years back and were fortunate enough to go to the Rohtang Pass on one of those sunny days. A few pictures of the imposing and vivid natural beauty of the place is what I can share with u in the following link.
