Rohtang Pass Status 2022 – Rohtang Pass Current Status

by Vargis.Khan

The present Rohtang Pass status is open from both Manali and Keylong sides. The road was declared open last week and civilian traffic was allowed to cross the pass. The Rohtang Pass permit is still applicable for both locals and tourists to approach Rohtang from the Manali side.

You can also follow me on Instagram and chat with me live there or subscribe to my YouTube channel and ask a question there to get the latest status on the road.

Historically, the pass is declared open either by late March or early April. It is extremely rare that the road will open before that. Even if it does, it is deemed unsafe for tourists to travel on.

The Rohtang Tunnel is however open and is being used by tourists for traveling to the other side of the pass, to Lahaul Valley.

Rohtang Pass Status Today = OPEN

Route Status
Manali to Rohtang Pass Open
Manali to Solang Valley Open
Manali to Keylong / Jispa Open

If you are planning a trip to Rohtang Pass in the next few days, then please read through How to Plan a Trip to Rohtang Pass.

This should give you an idea of some of the important things to keep in mind while planning the trip. Another important aspect of the trip will be the permit for which, I will recommend taking a look at How to Apply for Rohtang Pass Permit.

For a list of other places that you should be seeing while visiting Manali, please read How to Plan a Trip to Manali. For visiting Solang Valley, please see How to Plan a Trip to Solang Valley.

Manali and Rohtang did open for tourists in 2021 and there was a huge tourist crowd in the town. All hotels and businesses were fully functional. There were so many people in the town that it is hard to even find a room right now. Rohtang Passes were all booked for weeks.

The same kind of crowd can be expected. As a matter of fact, before the increase in COVID cases in January, there were a lot of tourists in the town to enjoy the snow.

When Will Rohtang Pass Open in 2022?

The opening of Rohtang Pass entirely depends on the weather, and how fast BRO is able to clear the snow after the winter season has passed.

Historically though, it is always the month of April when Rohtang Pass is declared open for the tourist community. Sometimes it can open sooner as well if the snow wasn’t much, but Mid April is a safer time to assume. There have been times when the pass was not open well into the month of May as well; as it happened in 2019.

Is Rohtang pass open on Tuesday?

No, Rohtang Pass remains closed for all kinds of vehicular movement on Tuesdays.

Is Rohtang Pass Open Now?

No, Rohtang Pass is closed right now.

Is Rohtang Pass Safe?

Yes, Rohtang Pass is very safe and is visited by thousands of families each year. But that can only be if you too act like a responsible tourist. The road from Manali to Rohtang can be a little tricky at places so you will have to drive carefully. Drive carefully, do not put yourself in harm’s way and you will be OK.

If you start to feel uneasy because of altitude sickness, you must cut your trip short and drive back down to Manali immediately. If the symptoms persist after you were back, consult a doctor and take plenty of rest.

Is Rohtang Pass safe for Infants?

This one is a tricky question. There are two factors that will have to be considered. The first one is of the cold weather and the second is of acute mountain sickness. You will not be the only family visiting Rohtang with kids but you must practice some cautions.

Keep your kid well covered to protect against the cold wind. If possible, do not bring the baby out of the car. Keep them inside, well covered and protected as you step out to enjoy the vistas.

In terms of acute mountain sickness, you should know that the lungs of an infant are not fully developed to handle AMS. You can go to the pass but if your baby starts crying, looks irritated or annoyed, looks uneasy then you must drive back down to Manali and not go any further.

Is Rohtang open in April?

Yes, Rohtang Pass remains open in April but only after the 15th of the month. There have been times when it was open in the first week as well. However, Mid April is a safer time to assume as the official opening of the pass.

There have also been instances when continued snowfall pushed the opening of the pass to May 1st week. Historically though, Rohtang remains open in April for at least a few days to a couple of weeks.

Conclusion

I hope the information above on Rohtang Pass status was of help. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments section below, and I will be happy to answer. You can also follow me on Instagram and chat with me live there or subscribe to my YouTube channel and ask a question there.

Hi, it’s May 5 already. Is there any news about Rohtang Pass opening? I went on 1st May and I was not allowed.
