Manali Rohtang by HPTDC Bus - Expert take

Ever since HPTDC introduced Rohtang Pass bus tour (from June 2011), it has been a big hit with tourists visiting Manali. Lower fare, escape from ever opportunist Manali taxi drivers makes it an interesting proposition.

Unfortunately, it is not a money saver

HPTDC bus drops you at a distance from action zone (snow play activity) area of Snow Point/Manali. Thus you might end up hiring a pony to reach action zone.
Unfortunately, pony charges are high making the entire trip to Rohtang Pass more expensive by HPTDC bus than travelling to Rohtang Pass from Manali by taxi.
