The district administration of Lahaul & Spiti has made e-pass mandatory to monitor traffic movement towards the famous Chandertal lake area from the Manali or Kaza side.
The district administration has launched a website www.eaagman.hp.gov.in, where tourists can register themselves along with their full details and vehicle number to avail the e-pass. The e-pass can be obtained free of cost by adopting a simple procedure to apply online for it on a concerned website.
The e-pass will be issued by Sub-Divisional Magistrates of Kaza and Lahaul for the tourists, those visiting to Chandertal lake area from Kaza and Koksar side on Koksar-Kaza road.

Talking to The Tribune Deputy Commissioner Lahaul Spiti Pankaj Rai said that “The mechanism has been developed to monitor and control tourist movement and to ensure their safety. For more information tourists can contact on number 9459461355.”
Rai stated that “this system would also enable District Disaster Management Authority, Lahaul Spiti, to provide help to the needy tourists if they are trapped somewhere because of bad weather conditions. Chandertal lake area is quite remote, where telecommunication service is negligible. As a result, the information gets delayed or is inaccurate about the number of tourists.” He said that locals are exempted from this procedure.

Shimla, June 25
The Chief of the Army Staff, General MM Naravane, today said that the Indian Army had prepared a plan to strengthen the road network along the border areas of the state, which would help promote development activities and contain migration.
Gen Naravane called on Governor Bandaru Dattatreya at the Raj Bhawan here and held detailed discussions on various issues related to the development of border areas of the state. He said that the Army was capable of giving a befitting reply to every nefarious attempt of the enemy. As far as the border with China was concerned, talks were going on and there was nothing to worry, he added.
Gen Naravane said that there was a lot of enthusiasm among the youth for the Army and a large number of them were willing to join the force. Efforts were being made to give representation to every district of the country in the Army. He also expressed concern over narco-terrorism in border areas and said that the local administration had done a good job to contain it.

The Governor stressed the need for infrastructure development along the border areas with China. “The Army has an important role in the development of roads, helipads and other infrastructure. Youths from villages adjoining the border are migrating to cities for employment opportunities. It is a matter of concern and we need to explore the possibility of self-employment and employment at the local level,” he said.
Dattatreya said that jawans from almost every household in the lower belt of Himachal were serving in the Army and the number of ex-servicemen was also quite high. He also raised the issue of the Walker Hospital at Shimla with the Army Chief.

Visits ARTRAC
  • Gen Naravane also visited the Army Training Command (ARTRAC) where he discussed issues such as operational challenges and preparedness
  • He was briefed about the ongoing activities, including training in strategic-military futures, doctrinal corrections, technological infusion and training pedagogy
  • He was also apprised about the initiatives being undertaken to maximise the effectiveness of the Army and steps taken to make professional military education more contemporary and responsive to current challenges

Residents of Lahaul-Spiti today submitted a memorandum to Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari against the proposal of the state and Central governments to set up power projects on the Chenab.
Gadkari, on a tour of the Lahaul valley, was accorded a warm welcome at Sissu by the residents of Lahaul and Spiti. A delegation of the Tandi Bandh Sangharsh Samiti Lahaul Spiti led by its president Vinod Larje met the Union minister and submitted the memorandum.
Pirdi Lal, a spokesperson for the samiti, said, “We apprised the Union Minister that the state and Central governments were keen to set up power projects on the Chenab in Lahaul and Spiti. There are around 16 mega power projects and 30 micro power projects proposed on the Chenab, which will prove disastrous for the area residents”.

The residents of the Lahaul valley also requested Gadkari to declare the Tandi-Sansari road as a national highway. Meanwhile, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar also arrived in Kullu on a private visit today. Union Minister for Textiles Smriti Irani left Kullu after a two-day sojourn in the Tirthan valley. — TNS

Tourists throng Solang, Manali, Rohtang tunnel

Updated At: Jul 06, 2021 06:04 PM (IST)

Abhinav Vashisht
KULLU, JULY 5


After almost 15 months, Manali is again abuzz with tourists thronging Solang Nullah, Vashisht and the latest attraction, the Rohtang tunnel. Hoteliers are happy as most properties are registering high occupancy. The beneficiaries of the tourism industry are elated. Generally, the tourist footfall starts receding from July but this year, the tourist destination is still witnessing an increase in the numbers of visitors.
Though the influx continues through the week with the mercury rising in the plains, the tourist rush is highest on weekends. The revellers are also rushing to the hill station to seek relief from boredom due to Covid crisis. Lahaul and Spiti SP Manav Verma said 65,028 vehicles entered the Lahaul valley through the Rohtang tunnel in June.
Within a fortnight, after June 14, when the state government announced Covid relaxations, as many as 23,900 outside vehicles paid the green tax charged by the Tourism Development Council, Kullu. This tax is not applicable to vehicles registered in Himachal.

Tourists from Delhi, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, who are flocking to Manali, are indulging in adventure activities like paragliding, rock climbing, trekking and river rafting in the Beas.
A large numbers of tourists are arriving in Manali en route to Leh, which, too, is contributing to reviving the tourism industry. The taxi owners are also relieved.

Anup Ram Thakur, president, Manali Hoteliers Association, said tourist footfall was increasing and many closed hospitality units were resuming operations. According to hoteliers, over 5,000 tourist vehicles are entering the hill town on weekends. The staff engaged in hospitality units also heaved a sigh of relief upon being recalled.

Tourists throng Solang, Manali, Rohtang tunnel
 
I am planning a 5.5 days trip to Kaza, Chandratal. Can someone help me out with my itinerary and places to visit?
Starting point Noida, mode of travel Harrier.
Day 1: Noida to Kufri/Fagu/Narkanda.
Day 2: Narkanda to Kalpa.
Day 3: Kalpa to Kaza.
Day 4: Kaza to Chandratal.
Day 5: Chandratal-Manali-Noida.

Day 5 would be a long haul. Though the Atal tunnel has reduced the driving time between Chandratal lake and Manali by about 2 hours it still takes 4-5 hours to reach Manali as there is heavy traffic on north and south portal of Atal tunnel nowadays.

How to reach Spiti valley from Manali (via Atal tunnel)?

Do check e-pass or permit requirements at Kaza SDM office before heading out to Chandratal.

Cloudburst in Dharamshala not Shimla. It way not a cloudburst anyway. Heavy rains + construction near stream/nallah caused the flash flood.

Dharamshala, a mountain town in Himachal Pradesh, a designated smart city under the central government's Smart City Mission(SCM), saw flash floods on Monday, July 12. A few years ago, Bihar's capital Patna, another "smart" city, was flooded. The then deputy chief minister of the state, Sushil Modi, had to be rescued from his house. Varanasi, currently undergoing redevelopment work, was flooded a few months back. Lastly, the example of Delhi's Chandni Chowk, where a redevelopment project is nearing completion, flooded a few days ago when there was hardly any rainfall.

Why are smart cities and towns becoming more prone to floods?
