Keylong is situated on the famous Manali Leh Ladakh road which leads to Srinagar on travelling further. Keylong is approximately 120Kms from Manali in this route. Manali is in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh while Keylong is situated in Lahaul and Spiti district of the same state. One has to cross the border of Kullu to reach Keylong after Rohtang pass. It is not possible to visit Rohtang pass and enjoy completely while travelling Keylong. There are so many sports available in Rohtang pass which nearly take one day to enjoy. So, travellers moving towards Keylong, may have to leave in the early hours from Manali if want to enjoy the snow point.
Road to Keylong from Manali is cut off during October to April due to snow falling near Rohtang pass area. Sometimes the road is opened early (end of April) with the effort of defence people who work hard to clear the ice at Rohtang pass. One can see the big big field machineries on this way specially buldozers which are used to clear the ice. There is a two lane road being constructed from Manali to Leh. Due to this, the condition of the road has become worse. One has to be very careful while driving. Better to get a vehicle which has more ground clearence.
