Second best place after Solang Valley

This is the second best place to visit after Solang Valley incase one wants to see snow. Although there is not much snow as we can see in Solang Valley but this is for the ones who do not want much crowd.

Breathtaking beauty

Kothi Village is at bottom of Rohtang Pass 16 km away from Manali towards Lahaul-Spiti-Leh Highway. The place is excellent to visit. Filled with natural beauty and we had never experienced this experience. Must visit place and should be in your travel map.

Snow All Around

This was the highest point of our trip. This was the last point on Rohtang Road that we could go in the month of February. We witnessed snowfall in the month of February. Roads were covered with snow. It was safe.

Amazing place

Kothi is a small hill-station another 15 km or so from Manali. A very beautiful and peaceful place. We had our stay at a guest house on the top of a hill that gave us a nice view.

Have a zig-zag drive!!

KOTHI is the last village of Manali towards Rothang pass. This village is totally different from the other villages as it is totally clean and the roads are like a snake path. Our car went in a zig-zag manner.
