Pass is the highest point, 4,112m, on the Manali
-Keylong road, 51-km from Manali town. It
provides a wide panoramic view of mountains rising far above clouds, which
is a sight truly breath-taking. It offers only limited skiing
opportunities, but trekking possibilities are immense.
The pass is open from June to September, 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.
