Best place to visit-Himalayas-one of its kind

‘Hima’ means snow and ‘alaya’ means abode which altogether becomes himalaya- the snow abode. The place where the hindu diety ‘The Lord shiva’ resides as per the hindu sculpture. One of its kind because of its challenging beauty that no other mountain on earth could challenge, the heights at which it is located and the history and stories it carries along with it. It is one of the best place of the monks and pure souls for meditation. It is a pure bliss.

Rohtang Pass – One of its kind

Himalayas Rohtang Pass is a tall mountain pass positioned on the eastern Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas and are approximately 51 km far from Manali. We reached the rohtang pass through Manali-Leh Highway, a part of NH 21 that transverses Rohtang Pass. Rohtang pass has a beautiful outstanding fragmentation amid the humid Kullu Valley that denotes predominantly Hindu culture in the southern region along with the arid high-altitude Lahaul and Spiti valleys that depicts a Buddhist culture located in the northern region. It beautifully sleeps on the watershed between the Chenab and Beas basins.

For the period apart from this, it is covered with mountains and the roads are blocked and closed that makes it inaccessible for the travelers. it is rather dangerous due to unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards.

Rohtang pass the most beautiful- how to travel

Taxi is allowed only till snow point. Only limited vehicles are allowed per day. it is more viable to book your Rohtang tour in advance and start as soon as the dawn falls. People who love trekking take their icycles from manali but things should be checked and booked well in advance due to random snowstorm and unpredictable weather.

The preeminent time to visit Rohtang pass is May to October. The weather of Rohtang Pass is always cool but rigid. A swift drop in the temperature, even in summer, can trigger winter-like conditions.

Though the site being so beautiful and panaromic, people could not visit the pass on the other time of the year. Keeping this thing in mind, the government began building the long Rohtang Tunnel.

While our way round the mountain we could catch a glimpse of wild ass. Wonder, how lucky there were to be here to enjoy the most beautiful atmosphere and view on the earth, away from the human interference.

You would get access of dhabas ‘places to eat’ randomly. We stopped to have the breathtaking view of the moutains and rivers. I could connect myself back the mother nature, I could feel the purity in air. Pure air, right- that is the reason people living in Himalayan region do not get ick more often and are healthy. I could see the beautiful landscape crowing the sky light.

Laghu ungla is the last point and then, begins the indus valley at the altitude of 17000 feet.
