Nice Photos... I don't know how often u check this website... we are planning a visit to Rrotang Pass Mid June wanted to know how far is Gromphu from Rothang Pass (how many hours drive?)
Gromphu is around 15 to 16 km from Rohtang Pass and it takes around 45 minutes to get there by vehicle. When you go beyond Rohtang, the road does to Gromphu and then to Koksar. If you are driving then be careful since road may be in very bad shape (it was when I went there in May 2007) and slope is very steep. As such there is not much to see in Gromphu & Koksar. From Koksar same road goes to Leh via Tandi Bridge & Kaylong. There is another road from Kaksar which goes to Kaza.
If you are planning just to visit Gromphu and not to go further then I would suggest you to visit Kaylong and stay there atleast one or two days. This is around 2 hour drive from Koksar and road condition is good. I heard its a good place and has a number of old monastries nearby. I did not go to Kaylong but went to visit Triloknath temple instead.
For more inforamtion about that area, plaese visit the follwing oficial site of Himachal Pradesh tourism department:
