Rohtang Pass, India
The Rohtang Pass in India is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3,979 m (13,054 ft) above the sea level, located on the eastern Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas. The pass is closed half a year and each season road crews use GPS to find the road and dig it out again. However, massive and deadly landslides continue, giving the pass its name, which translates to ground of corpses. This road has humbled many egos. It’s not for the sissies and shouldn’t be attempted by novice drivers. The road is in dreadful condition and requires strong nerves to negotiate it. It remains off-limits from the rest of the country for over five months due to heavy snow deposits on the road. This pass is an ancient trade route between the people on either side of Pir Panjal.
