Hence it is advisable to come here very early in the morning and stay upto afternoon and starts returning once the traffic gets clear.

The safest and the easiest way to reach the snow point is by horse ride but it is a bit costly ride, but elderly and the small children can comfortably use this service. The horse man charges around Indian Rupees 400 per trip ( both ways ) per horse. Tourists plan their trip in early hours to reach Rohtang very early to avoid traffic and reach at the snow point.

Shopkeepers keep cold drinks in running water to maintain the temperature as there is no need of a refrigerator here. One can relish the food by sitting inside the low running water of the river Beas. The weather here is highly unpredictable and it does not take much time for the bright sun shine to change over to moderate to heavy snow fall.
