Now-you can go upto MARHI but pass is not open. Has seen some snowfall last week...

Add to favourites that tribune link and you will be getting latest weather report of the region. Give atleast 10 days from date of opening for ROHTANG PASS to cross over.

Zozila is not a easy go through pass

Although road will open in early June but do not go untill third or fourth week.
Many people had advocated that road will open in Last week of MAY. Yes- beacuse INDIAN ARMY open for thier heavy vehicles but this is about INDIAN ARMY-they prepare themselves for any hanky panky situation come in thier way...they have full supplies and RT.

But a normal tourist find himself in deep trouble when he struck up in NO-WHERE situation and our cars and SUVs fails there. I had gone through situation where my SAFARI could not handle the snow slippery on oad although I am having BIG RADIAL TYRES...

Reason is simple-we need 4x4 vehicle and almost all ARMY VEHICLES running on these roads are 4x4.

Please do not try to attempt...although there is possibility that you may get through but if you could NOT-then will be REAL ADVENTURE which could be too much...sometimes !!

ALWAYS DRIVE and TRAVEL on these high altitue roads after 3rd week of JUNE.
