    charm of this place will transport you into a
    bygone era of the 60s. This village has the
    typical idyllic village vibe with cafes that have

    attracts a lot of tourists. The source of water

9. Rohtang Pass Manali
  • We have saved the best for the last. Rohtang Pass
    is a gateway to Lahual and Spiti Valley in
    Himachal Pradesh and is pretty as a postcard.
    This beauty of a pass is located 51 kilometres.
    away from Manali, at a height of 3980 meters on
    the ManaliKeylong highway.
  • Skiing, ice-skating, paragliding and more
    adventure sports draw people from all parts of
    the country and abroad to this place.  It has
    more than 25 lakh visitors every year.  However,
    a visit to this place requires special permission
    from the Indian Army as this part of the road is
    covered in snow throughout the year making travel
    by road impossible until and unless the area is
    cleared by the Indian Army. Thus, the RohtangPass
    is only open from April to October for tourists.
  • Just near the Pass are the Sonapani glacier and
    the twin peaks of Gaypan which are famous for the
    panoramic views and peaceful atmosphere. Some
    people also visit the source of the Beas River
    which is a holy site for Hindu people and is easy
    to get to from the Rohtang Pass.

  • However, all is not cheery and touristy at
    Rohtang Pass as the name Rohtang translates into
    the ominous ground of corpses. The name comes
    due to the number of people who have lost their
    lives while trying to cross this raw and untamed
    part of the Himalayas. Also,keep in mind that
    there is no option to stay at RohtangPass unless
    you have your tent and set up camp by the
    roadside. Manali is the best option to stay in
    and visit. In any case, it is a good idea for
    overweight people or people with high blood
    pressure to get a doctors recommendation before
    visiting the place.
