No Snow

There is virtually no snow at Rohtang. There was some at Kunzam on the sides but not much interference with the traffic. I was on Kunzam and Rohtang on 26 Sept. coming back from Kaza.

Yes ! Chances are quite high....
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Read on IM that the trip to Rohtang Pass should be undertaken very early in the morning (sunrise) --- is it advisable 1st week of June this year since general traffic just begins then?

Even now youŽll have a lot of traffic from early morning - this is 90 % the day trippers up to the highest point accessible , coming to see the snow. Last year it too me six and a half hours up to the Rothang ( around fifty klicks ) , where I unloaded my bike and pedalled down the other side , with breaks , in about two. This was third week june.

Hi Kirtik, Please remember Rohtang Pass would be closed for road maintenance every teusday. Going to Rohtang very early or at reasonably early hour is okay but do not panic as you are on a holiday and you just want to visit the place. You can even start after breakfast and return in the evening.

Yes, even now we have loads of traffic but luckily this year we have the police manning the road which helps in keeping the traffic moving.

Been seeing a lot of posts by you!
Im pondering over a few week-long options from 28 may to june 4:
1. Jalori pass - Serolsar lake
2. Beas Kund
3. Bhrigu lake
4. Sangla - Chitkul

What would you recommend?
Thanks
Cheerios!
