About Rohtang Pass

When Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor (now Khan) looked for ‘Baithe Bithaye Jannat,' they reached one of the most prominent attractions in Manali, Rohtang Pass. That’s how blissful this place is! With snow covered hills and valley and the view of the Chandra River, it is located in the eastern hills of Pir Panjal Range. Rohtang Pass is nature’s beauty in full-form and one of the most picturesque locations in India. Rahala Waterfall on the way to the pass just adds to its beauty and makes it even more popular among tourists. You will particularly enjoy visiting this place if you’re an adventurer with a wide-range of adventure sports options like skiing, snow scooter, etc available.

Historical Context: The temple is dedicated to the deity, Hadimba, who was married to Bhima of the Pandavas of Mahabharata. Hadimba lived in Manali with her brother Hadimb and had vowed to marry the man who defeated her brother in a battle. While the Pandavas were in exile, they stayed in Himachal for a brief period, which is when Hadimb attacked Bhima. The brother was killed at this time, and soon after, Bhima married Hadimba. They have a child named Ghatotkacha. In the final years of her life, it is believed that Hadimba retired into the woods and meditated at Dhungri Van Vihar, which is where the temple was built in 1553. It is because of this reason it's also called the Dhungri Temple.
Pro Tip: There is a tourist permit applicable for your visiting Rohtang Pass. You can visit http:. Admis.hp.nic.in. Ngtkullu. Home. PermitRequestCitizen?purpose=TM to apply It's suggested that you start early to reach Rohtang Pass to avoid traffic
