From May to November, you can access one of the most precarious places on the earth; The Rohtang Pass. This beautiful and yet dangerous place is named so (the literal meaning in Bhoti is “piles of corpses) due to its reputation of being an extremely unpredictable place. Nevertheless, tourists love it. The beauty of the Rohtang Pass is extraordinary. It is the highest point in the whole of Manali making it a truly mesmerizing experience. The mist that floats though the valley, the wild animals, the greenery and everything in between makes this place truly magical.

The Rohtang Pass is also famous for its snow-sports that include a huge variety. There is a Himachal Pradesh tourism signboard that tells you of all the standard prices for the equipment so you need not be worried of being taken for a ride. The place is a wonderful spot for people who love trekking too. In a way, a trip to Manali would remain incomplete without the surreal Rohtang Pass experience.

Rohtang Pass, Manali Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of the all time favourite, i have visited here around 6 times till now in the band of 14 years, but in every visit i have witnessed the monstrously increasing traffic and longer jams. Always visit in daytime only and avoid crossing this pass in night as the ice on the roads gets thicker and no body will ever get to know you skidded from which curve. The scenic beauty can be literally compared with Switzerland.

  • Place was awesome and pleasant. I enjoyed too much. I recommend this place for the arriving visitors in April time.

  • Great place to visit in summer's. Keep in mind high altitude sickness and prepare accordingly as sometimes motion and high altitude sickness can affect. A mobile ambulance van is available at halfway in Mari while going to Rohtang.

  • Beautiful place to visit. There are different spot on this pass where you can enjoy view. Best time to visit is during winters. Manali is the closest city to this point. You need to take permit from local authority to go to this point. Daily limited no. of passes are allocated so you need to plan well in advance.

  • Amazing views. Best time to visit is November 2nd week
