Rohtang - 55 KM
The pass is around 51 km from Manali and serves as the gateway to Lahaul and Spiti valleys. Enveloped by the Pir Panjal Mountain Range of the Himalayas, this high-altitude mountain pass is known for its matchless natural beauty. It is also known for its strategic importance for the country. A drive on Rohtang Pass offers wonderful views of surrounding peaks, glaciers, Chandra River, and Lahaul Valley, along with twin peaks of Geypan. Rohtang Pass is open between June and October as during the remaining months, it is covered with snow, making it inaccessible. During the peak season, the pass is jam-packed, and thus to avoid delay, one must leave quite early.
