The Rohtang mountain pass located on the eastern end of the Pir Panjal mountain range of the Himalayas is the connecting pass to Kullu Valley, about 51 kilometres from Manali.

The incredible landscape of the surrounding region includes the emerging Beas River on the south of the pass, flowing up from underground and southward. In addition, on the northern side the Chandra River, is a source stream of the Chenab River, flowing westward.

This pass has served as an ancient trade route for travellers in transit between both sides of the Pir Panjal mountain range. It also forms a part of the National Highway 21 (NH 21) and is considered an important alternate military route.

While the location of this pass is deservedly reputed to be unpredictable and dangerous with snowstorms and blizzards, its unique location allows the daring traveller a soul-stirring, panoramic view of some of the planet’s most breath-taking topography and natural beauty.

At 3,978 m, the experience of this travel and the stunning beauty is an inspiration. As the Pass divides the Kullu Valley of Hindu religion and the Lahaul and Spiti Valleys of Buddhist religion, you get to explore both worlds close to this area. The waters from Chenab and Beas rivers, considered holy, add to the incredible experience.

Recommend to all guys who wanna explore ice valley

We had great experiences during the sightseeing. Ice Valleys are so cool to encounter and the really cool peaceful environment helps to forget the normal daily routine and enjoying the moments of your precious life.

Adventure sports & happy faces of my family.

The picturesque views of snow-clad mountains, river valleys, thermal springs and laidback vibe, this hill station is totally worth it. Hidimba temple, rohtang pass, solang valley, manikaran being the highlights. A must visit. Do try the local paav.

Amazing view with 3 Degree Celsius

It took more than 2 hours to travel only 55 km , but it was worth it as the view was amazing all over the way, but the way was pretty dangerous. Best time to visit Rohtang is in October or in March, because in between it will be closed due to snow fall.

Awesome Place

It was really a good experience to be in Rohtang. However, the only mistake done by our group was that we visited their in the month of August which is not the peak time to be there
