The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) restored the 13,050-foot high Rohtang Pass, the gateway to Lahaul on the Manali-Leh highway, for vehicular movement on Sunday morning.
Residents of tribal district Lahaul-Spiti heaved a sigh of relief with the opening of the pass.
Every year Rohtang receives heavy snowfall, which cuts off the residents from the rest of the state for several months. The closure of the pass leaves them with no road connectivity and telecommunication services.
A majority of the residents move to Kullu-Manali during the winter. Today voters will be allowed to move towards Lahaul-Spiti from Kullu-Manali to exercise their franchise in the General Election.
Every year in the month of March, the BRO starts snow-clearing operation from the Manali and Lahaul sides towards Rohtang to restore the pass for vehicular activity. Generally, the pass is restored in the end of April or mid-May every year, depending on the quantity of snowfall in the region.
The Rohtang Pass is a favourite tourist destination, where tourist can enjoy snow activity even till the end of June. Every year, a large number of tourists visit Rohtang to enjoy snow activities. Till now the tourist were allowed up to Marhi.
“With the relentless efforts of the BRO team, we have been able to restore the pass in stipulated time. There were lot of challenges to restore the pass in such a short period because as we faced snow avalanche threat, land sliding and bad weather conditions in the region,” a BRO official said
“This year the amount of snowfall was quite heavy in the region, which was a big challenge for us. However, we met the May 19 target and restored the pass successfully,” he said.
Hoteliers of Kullu and Manali are also elated with the opening of the pass. They are hopeful that the district administration will allow tourists up to Rohtang in coming days.

Kaza to Manali road won't be open before 15th of June 2019 as per the too much snow on the road,
dozer will reach tomorrow near by Kunzum pass,
Chandertal Campsite will be start first week of June if there is no any issue of weather

रोहतांग दर्रे से होकर आज से दौडे़ंगी निगम की बसें

अमर उजाला ब्यूरो


उदयपुर/कोकसर (लाहौल-स्पीति)। रोहतांग दर्रे में दिसंबर माह से बंद एचआरटीसी की बस सेवा अब मंगलवार से फिर शुरू होगी। एचआरटीसी केलांग ने सोमवार को जिला मुख्यालय केलांग से मनाली के लिए ट्रायल पर बस भेजी, जो सफल रही। ऐसे में एचआरटीसी केलांग ने 21 मई से नियमित बस सेवा शुरू करने का निर्णय लिया है।
पिछले साल के मुकाबले इस बार करीब एक माह से अधिक देरी से खुले रोहतांग दर्रा से शुरू हो रही बस सेवा से लाहौलवासियों ने राहत की सांस ली है। लोकसभा चुनाव में मतदान करने के लिए टनल के रास्ते गए सैकड़ों लोगों को लाहौल से वापस आने में भी आसानी होगी। बस सेवा आरंभ होने से लाहौल के लोग कुल्लू-मनाली के बीच कभी भी आवाजाही कर सकेंगे। रोहतांग दर्रा होकर मंगलवार को निगम की दो बसों के साथ पेट्रोल और डीजल से भरे चार टैंकर भी कुल्लू से लाहौल की ओर भेजे जाएंगे। इसमें एचआरटीसी के दो तथा दो टैंकर एलपीएस के होंगे। ऐसे में पेट्रोल-डीजल की समस्या से जूझ रहे घाटी के वाहन चालकों, किसानों-बागवानों को राहत मिलेगी। आने वोले दिनों में पर्यटक भी लाहौल की वादियों का रुख कर सकेंगे। हालांकि अभी इसके लिए सैलानियों को कुछ दिन इंतजार करना होगा। एचआरटीसी केलांग के क्षेत्रीय प्रबंधक मंगल चंद मनेपा ने इसकी पुष्टि की है। कहा कि दिसंबर माह में बर्फबारी के चलते यह मार्ग यातायात के लिए बंद पड़ गया था। ऐसे में अब दर्रा के खुलने से 21 मई से रोहतांग होकर निगम को बस सेवा शुरू होगी। एचआरटीसी केलांग डिपो ने सोमवार को निरीक्षण के साथ बस का सफल ट्रायल किया है। उन्होंने कहा कि जल्द ही केलांग से लंबे रूटों की बस सेवा को भी शुरू किया जाएगा।
