  • Summary of Pin Parvati Pass Trek



    This trek can be challenging in stages and is recommended only for people who have previous trekking experience. You will be required to cross a moderately difficult pass, do a few river crossings and walk long stretches on certain days. Just like its sibling, the Bhabha Pass, it offers unmatched variety and excitement. The landscape you start from and the one you finish in have nothing in common other than the fact that both are mesmerising. The contrast is very refreshing indeed. You add to this the adrenaline rush of crossing ice cold rivers and a high Himalayan pass (5300 m), for which the build-up starts happening on Day 1 and you have all the ingredients of a thriller.

    Another standout feature is that as you move along the trail from the Kullu valley into the Spiti valley, you see a drastic change in culture, with both cultures being distinct, rich and welcoming. The trek starts from the beautiful Kullu valley which is known for its lush green landscapes, hospitable people, inviting meadows, apple orchards and rich culture. From here a demanding 5 days walk takes you literally on top of the world where you walk on gigantic snow fields to reach the Pin Parvati pass (5300 m). You will probably spend just about an hour here, but in this short time, capture sights which will last for a lifetime for sure! There are views of high mountain ranges, glaciers, ice walls and underlying valleys all conjuring a spectacular picture.

One will need to manoeuvre carefully and with assistance from our guides and we might put ropes, if required. Ody Thach is again a massive meadow with the majestic Kullu Eiger peak overlooking it.

From the camp we start with a steep climb to reach a col from where it’s a walk through big snow fields till we reach close to the pass where we ascend for about an hour to get to the top of the world!! Views are completely mind boggling and feeling completely amazing. You will be proud of your achievement!! From here we will descend again through snow fields and moraine sections.

You will pass by a few shepherd camps and cross a few streams along the way with the last one needing to be handled carefully. From the trail we get a view of Mudh village far away with its barley fields, at the base of a big and barren mountain. On reaching Mudh we spend some time in this quaint village before driving to Kaza. On reaching Kaza we check into a hotel and enjoy a much deserved hot shower.
