Unable to find the soft snow elsewhere, tourists, too, are desperate of Rohtang pass. Misguided by some travel agents and taxi drivers, travellers were thronging Rohtang to witness the fresh soft snow but the pass was proving heart breaker for them. Tourists from Ahmadabad, Hiren Mehta and his family, who visited Rohtang on Monday said, “Our travel agent had promised that we shall be able to have fun in fresh snow on Rohtang but we cannot trace the snow here.” He said that finally they moved back to the Rahni glacier where snow was hard like ice and they enjoyed for few minutes.
Ashwani Patel and Sneha, honeymooners from Delhi said they were expecting fresh snowfall on Rohtang as temperature was very low with overcast. “We rushed towards Rohtang pass but cannot see snowfall. Even the entire mountain was dry. A dhaba owner said snow was melted away in mid July. We had to return back empty-handed,” they said.
Border roads organization has controlled the landslides at Rahni Nullah and highway has been well maintained up to Rohtang pass. But unavailability of snow is disappointing hundreds of tourists reaching here every day.
