Location: Manali, Kullu Valley, Himachal Pradesh
Rating: Hard…very hard
Road Condition: Quite decent for the first 2 thirds. Gets very bad near the top.
Traffic: Rohtang Pass is the Juhu Beach of Himachal…enough said. Traffic jams can take hours to clear and parking at the top is near impossible to find. The authorities have now started regulating the number of vehicles going up to keep things under control.
USP: The first part up to Marhi is mostly through coniferous forest cover and beautiful. Take in the view to take your mind off the pain…it’s totally worth it 🙂
