Good news for millions of tourists who have planned to visit Manali this summer. The picturesque Rohtang pass is ready to entertain them with 10 to 25 feet of silvery snow.
Border Roads Organization has made the highway up to Rohtang worth plying of tourist vehicles and waved the green flag on Tuesday evening. Organization commander AK Dixit said the 52 km highway between Manali and Rohtang has been made wide enough to drive two vehicles at a time and snow has been cleared from the parking area of Rohtang. “Earlier we had decided to let the tourists reach Rohtang from June 1 but due to traffic and security constraints the traffic would be allowed beyond Marhi from June 2 onwards. All preparations to welcome tourists to this dreamland would be completed on Wednesday,” Dixit said.
Kullu SP Abhishek Dular said police would make a survey of highway on Wednesday and if everything goes right the tourists can see the Rohtang on Thursday.
