Rohtang Pass Tour Package Manali Rohtang Paas

Traveling northward from Manali, past the sulphur springs, of Vashishta and the Brighu Lake is the breathtaking region of Lahaul. Across the Rohtang Pass it is located at a height of 4,111 meters (13,400 ft.), reached by the world's highest jeepable road right up to and even beyond, Keylong. It is 117 kms from Manali the capital, to Lahaul. The threshold of the Lahaul plateau is nourished by the Chandra and Bhaga rivers. Dry and very cold, it is surrounded by high mountains on all sides, the Great Himalayas to the north, the Pir Panjal to the South and the Spiti-Chandra watershed


to the east. Higher and colder than Pangi valley there are many glaciers and high peaks in Lahaul. The biggest glacier is Bara Shigri. The road, that passes through Lahaul, starts from Rahalla falls, enters Lahaul by the Rohtang Pass, goes through Lahaul through Khoksar and Keylong and crosses out by the Baralacha-La. From Lahaul the Himalayas can be seen in all their mighty splendor. The barren landscape and sparse vegetation lends a magnificent charm to this otherwise bleak country. With their slant Mongol eyes, prominent cheek bones and cheerful smiles, the people give visitors an enthusiastic welcome.
