Rohtang Pass Manali

Standing on the top of the Rohtang Pass, a traveller has the feeling: "Behind lies a thickly inhabited, fertile valley where almost any sort of corn, rice, vegetables, flowers and fruites can be grown and a never ending supply of timber is to be had from the forest. In front is a desolate, windswept land, framed in mountains and glaciers without a tree or a house or a home being in sight,” Observed Penelope Chetwode in his book The End of The Habitable World.

Rohtang Pass is 23 kms from Manali on the road to Leh. It offers panoramic views and spectacular mountain views. The pass is open from June to October each year, although hikers can cross earlier. It is a gateway to Lahaul Spiti, Pangi and Leh Valley as passes Zojila is a gatway to Ladakh. There is a beautiful view of the glaciers, peaks and the Chandra River that flows into the Lahaul valley. Slightly to the left are the twin peaks of Geypan. During the summer (mid-June to October) regular buses run between Manali-Keylong / Darcha, Spiti and Leh.

If you don't mind a howling wind, often bitterly cold, take a bus or taxi ride to the 13,000 feet high snow-bound Rohtang Pass and return to Manali. The Rohtang Pass opens into Lahaul Valley- the only access to this valley. The road then meanders through Ladakh into Central Asia. Lahaul is marked by a central mass of uniformly high mountains and massive glaciers. The Chandra and the Bhaga rivers rise on either side of the Baralacha Pass and flow into the narrow valleys. They merge at the village Taro and thereafter known as the Chandrabhaga and in Jammu region, the Chenab.
