Rohtang Pass is the highest point on the Manali-Keylong road. It provides a wide panoramic view of the mountains rising far above the clouds, which is truly a breath taking sight.
Located at a height of 3979 m, the pass once served as a crucial trade route, and still remains the gateway to the districts of Lahaul and Spiti. Rohtang Pass offers only limited skiing opportunities, but trekking possibilities are immense. The pass is open from June to September every year, although trekkers can cross the pass from May.
Beyond Rohtang pass lies the remote and, perhaps, the stark and haunting landscape of predominantly Buddhist areas. The comparative inaccessibility of the place has helped preserve the pristine culture of the people of the region.
