Tunnel Vision: Atal Tunnel vs Rohtang Pass route ft. Audi Q8 & RS Q8 | Feature | Autocar India
The 9.02km long Atal Tunnel in Himachal Pradesh is the world's longest tunnel above 10,000 feet. How has the opening of the tunnel changed travel on the Leh-Manali highway? Rahul Kakar and Nikhil Bhatia set out in the Audi Q8 and Audi RS Q8 to contrast the spanking new route with the legendary old one that runs via the Rohtang Pass.
Special thanks to the Border Roads Organisation for making this video possible.

    I have driven through the old route 2 years back. It was a stunning and frightening drive. First day when the road is opened in summers, walls of ice / snow on both sides, no bitumen only boulders for road surface, gushing waterfall through the road... exhilarating. And the drive / view once you are about 25 Kms from Sissu is something that one can only experience in person. No words can describe them.

    old route is awesome.. been there on my alto.. but still wanna do it in my seltos

    Kudos to you guys. Video is more of a short film rather than usual Autocar India stuff. Looks like you guys have a director with you to direct it. Superbly photographed and perfectly edited. I want to experience both routes whenever I get a chance.
