Rohtang Pass :Vendor Menace

Local vendors will stop your vehicle to offer heavy woollen dresses, pony rides and what-have-you. Learn to ignore them. When you need to buy or hire anything, be prepared to negotiate.
Vendors will start with exhorbitant rate, Government fixed rate (see photo above) should be your starting point for negotiation. Do not pay more than what is shown in the table as actual charges.
Be careful of what you hire as most vendors pass on sub standard materials. A broken shoe can hurt you badly in snow.
Do not buy saffron or anything else at Rohtang Pass - they are all sub standard and cheap.

Note : All Non Himachal Pradesh bearing vehicles are banned on the Manali-Rohtang highway. They need special permission to travel to Rohtang Pass.
