Rohtang Pass

Visit to Manali is incomplete without a sojourn to Rohtang pass.

Rohtang pass is a high mountain pass on the eastern Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas and connects the Kullu valley with Lahaul and Spiti of Himachal Pradesh and is a gateway to Leh and Ladakh.

The 51km drive from Manali can be dizzying and chaotic with hairpin bends, absolute blind turns and traffic jams. However its worth the woe as the pass offers a wide panoramic view of mountains rising far above the clouds.

There is a small beautiful lake where pilgrims go every year on the auspicious day of 22nd Bhadon. The Beas kund, the source of the river Beas is close-by and is a holy site for the Hindus as sage Vyas is said to have meditated here.

Enroute Rohtang pass, 16 km from Manali, you can take a halt at ‘Kothi’, a cold, windy and picturesque spot amidst alpine meadows from where you can capture phenomenal views of river Beas which comes roaring down through a deep gorge.

The next highlight on your drive is the Rahala falls, a popular picnic spot. A few kilometers ahead is ‘marhi’ a happening place with hotels, dhabas and teashops etc.
