Riding Along the Captivating Rohtang Pass

Kullu Manali is one of the most beautiful hill stations of India. The sow-laden mountains, tranquil surroundings, and breezy atmosphere makes Manali a tourists’ favorite destination. Nestled at a certain distance from Manali is the magnificent mountain pass famously known as the ‘Rohtang Pass’.  The pass acts as a connector, connecting the Kullu Valley with Spiti and Lahaul Valleys.

Rohtang Pass is bounded by the Beas River on one side and the Sarkund Lake on another. Riding along the Pass is considered dangerous, as the area is prone to blizzards and snowstorms. Manalitourism covers the beautiful pass, which is known for its picturesque beauty and natural splendor. Also, the road houses many dhabas and eateries for the hungry and tired passersby’s. However, one may face difficulty riding along the Pass as the traffic gets crowded with military and tourist’s vehicles, and the snow-draped roads. It is because of the snow and storm that the pass remains closed down during the winter season from December to April. The pass also nests a tourist point, called the Snow Point.

The area can be slippery because of the snow, but it doesn’t in the way of having fun. Tourists can trek, ski, ice-skate, and do other fun activities with snow, like throwing snow balls and making snow houses with their families. Small shacks are nestled inside this area serving hot teas and mouth-watering pakoras. One can also see frozen waterfalls while travelling during October or November. If you want to walk along the pass hire winter wears and boots to protect yourself from the freezing temperature.

The tranquil beauty around the pass has left tourists awe-struck over the years. So, book tour packages toManali today, and capture the shimmering beauty of the pass in your cameras.
