Rohtang Pass, 51 Km. from Manali, is the highest point on the highway connecting the Kullu Valley to Keylong. The location offers skiing and trekking opportunities with a highest altitude of 4112 meters. The pass affords a wide spread panoramic view of the mountain serenity, almost directly opposite the well-defined Sonepani Glacier slightly left to the twin peaks of the Geypan. When Rohtang is closed due to snowfall, you can go up toGulaba (halfway) for fun in the snow. The drive to the snow point is a very scenic one.

Snow melts during the summer months starting May and skiing is then replaced by zorbing (a giant ball with room for 2 people which is rolled down a 200 metre hill), paragliding, parachuting and horse riding. For the ones who need the thrill, you can go tumbling down in the Zorbing ball or just paraglide all the way down the valley, while admiring the beauty of the hills around you.


Solang Valley is an amazing destination all year round but also a treat for the adventurous spirits during the summers with its various thrilling activities. So here is an amazing location for you to consider this summer!
