World's longest mountain tunnel under Rohtang Pass named after Atal Bihari Vajpayee


The government named the strategic tunnel under Rohtang Pass in Himachal Pradesh after former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in a tribute to him on his 95th birth anniversary.

Rohtang tunnel is a road link between Kullu and landlocked Lahaul Valley in Himachal Pradesh.

The 8.8-km-long tunnel will be the world's longest above an altitude of 3,000 metres and will reduce the distance between Manali and Leh by 46 kilometres.

The project is being implemented by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO).
