Rohtang Tunnel

The tunnel, which will be the longest running tunnel in India at 8.8 kilometres once completed, will connect Manali to Lahaul and Spiti Valley throughout the year and will reduce the length of the Leh-Manali Highway by around 46 kilometres. It will also significantly reduce the travel time by two-and-a-half hours.

Rohtang Pass

Built at an altitude of 13,050 feet under the Rohtang Pass  in the eastern Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas on the Leh-Manali highway, the horse-shoe shaped road tunnel will be operational for emergency vehicles through the winter. The tunnel will be fully functional by 15 August, 2019.
