Expert Speak

There is a limited window when the itinerary happens (June - Sep) when Rohtang Pass is open and this also happens to be the monsoon season (July - Sep) and weather around Manali can be unpredictable. Given all that this still can be a very memorable itinerary for any adventure seeker.
