    Dr Markanda said the tunnel will bring a revolution, both economic and social ,in the lives of the people in tribal district of Lahual-Spiti as they used to face isolation for six months ,after the Rohtang Pass (13,039 feet) get closed due to heavy snow and glaciers.

    The Tunnel will reduce a distance of 46 km between Manali and Keylong,which is the headquarters of Lahaul-Spiti district .
