The Himachal Pradesh government has decided to develop the landfill site adjoining the North Portal of the Atal Tunnel in Rohtang into a tourism village. The tunnel at 13,058-ft was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi ten months ago. The tunnel has been built by the Border Roads Organisation. A lake has been created by the Indian Army near the South Portal about 10km away by tapping a rivulet.
