   During tourist season it is better to head toward Rohtang pass early in the morning, As one of my friends from the state of Uttar Pradesh tried to visit the Rohtang pass a few months back. He left his hotel in Manali at around 9:00 AM. I informed him it is closed but still, he tried to visit Rohtang pass and was sent back by police before Gulaba. In Solang Nala, snow was not there at that time So they tried to visit Sissu and again sent back by cops from the Atal Tunnel in Rohtang as it is closed for tourists. Snow is there near Atal tunnel Rohtang so they enjoyed there and came back to Manali and they reached Manali at 9:00 PM and it took 12 hours for them to reach back to their Hotel in Manali.

Because of Christmas and New year, Manali is flooded by the vehicles of tourists during these days. So please plan your itinerary before reaching here to avoid such a thing.
