Mandi, June 21

The district administration of Lahaul & Spiti has made e-pass mandatory to monitor traffic movement towards the famous Chandertal lake area from the Manali or Kaza side.

The district administration has launched a website www.eaagman.hp.gov.in, where tourists can register themselves along with their full details and vehicle number to avail the e-pass. The e-pass can be obtained free of cost by adopting a simple procedure to apply online for it on a concerned website.

The e-pass will be issued by Sub-Divisional Magistrates of Kaza and Lahaul for the tourists, those visiting to Chandertal lake area from Kaza and Koksar side on Koksar-Kaza road.

Talking to The Tribune Deputy Commissioner Lahaul Spiti Pankaj Rai said that “The mechanism has been developed to monitor and control tourist movement and to ensure their safety. For more information tourists can contact on number 9459461355.”

Rai stated that “this system would also enable District Disaster Management Authority, Lahaul Spiti, to provide help to the needy tourists if they are trapped somewhere because of bad weather conditions. Chandertal lake area is quite remote, where telecommunication service is negligible. As a result, the information gets delayed or is inaccurate about the number of tourists.” He said that locals are exempted from this procedure.
