sar pass trek

In avid travelers and adventure seekers, Himachal Pradesh was always fascinating and enthusiastic. Himachal Pradesh has always been a favorite for travelers with its wide variety of terrain and beautiful natural beauty, with its most varied waterways, rivers, trees, livestock, and gigantic and royal Himalayas. Trekking in such a beautiful country would then be modest to swim in the freshness of the cool side of the mountain. If you are a novice or a qualified trekker, it doesn’t matter very much, because Himachal has many paths to enjoy its grandness. There are 10 of Himachal’s best treks here.

1. Pin Parvati

The trek from the Parvati valley green to the dark brown and flashy land of the Pin valley in Spiti starts in Pin Parvati, Spiti. The picturesque villages with their own cultures and languages and the swift rivers of Beas and Parvati, which flow alongside you, are certainly one for you to recollect. The Buddhist monasteries, particularly Ki Gompo and Tabo Monastery, are on your way as well. However, this trail also needs outstanding trekking skills and techniques. 

2. Malna Village Trek

One of the most famous treks is this trek to the village of Malana. This is a lovely place in the Himachal Mountains, far from the rest of the world, a utopia that hides away. The path is a postcard well suited for birch trees, rhododendrons, and widespread meadows.

3. Beas Kund

Beas Kund has got his name from an ancient rishi named “Vyas” who wrote Mahabharata’s Hindu epic. The Beas River comes from Beas Kund, which makes it an outstanding destination for both visitors and hikers. From Manali starts the Beas Kund walk through the splendid valley of Solang. Beas Kund is also a base camp for the Laddakhi and Friendship mountain climbers.

4. Baralacha- Chandratal Trek

Chandratal is simply referred to as ‘Moon Lake’ because its lake has the form of a crowned moon. It’s a cool lake in the dry and dry Spiti region, with crystal clear water that changes in shade over the course of the day. The surrounding meadow makes it a perfect place for camping. Chandrabhaga and Mulkila are the snow-covered massifs surrounded by snow and offer you a stunning view.

5. Chandrakhani Pass Trek

In the valley of Parvati that connects the valley of Mala to the valley of Kullu, Chandrakhani is a pass. The pass offers stunning views of the mountains of Deo Tibba, Parbati, and Pir Panjal. The trek starts from the village of Naggar close to Manali.

6. McLeod Ganj- Chamba Trek

The McLeod Ganj Trail to Chamba is one of Himachal Pradesh’s favorite trekking paths. Lined with rhododendron and Deodar trees bushes, the trail provides a view of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar stretches from the very beginning. On its way from Chamba to Lahaul and Spiti, we can see the pastors of the Gaadi tribe flocking their herds. Mani Mahesh Kailash, believed to be the Lord Shiva residence, can also be a witness from here.

7. Hampta Pass Trek

Hampta is located on the southeastern side of Manali, living in the mighty Himalayas. This hike through the dense waters of the Kullu-Manali valley river, which runs along the Hampta river, ends in the barren valley of Chandra in Lahaul. You are fascinated by the startling contrast of both valleys and the breathtaking experience with unusual fresh flowers and birds, glaciers, rejuvenating rivers, and exotic smells of walnut trees, pine trees, oaks, deodars, and alder trees.

8. Deo Tibba Base Camp Trek

The trek ends at the old village of Deo Tibba from Jagat Sukh 6 km south of Manali. You can taste the beauty of Lake Chandratal and its green pastures, where the shepherds of Gaddi frequently watch their animals grazing. You can also be witness to Chatru’s small and enjoyable hamlets. The walk ends up with a fascina view of the huge area of colorful flowers, the Deo Tibba Mountain, lined with dense snow layers, and a shrinking river that is surrounded by a natural rock bridge.

9. Trek to Triund Glacier

The trekking path taken by the herdsmen from Kangra and Chamba for the famous Himachal Pradesh trek is also common. It takes you from McLeod Ganj to Dharamkot and gives you a feeling of serenity as you move towards the Triund Glacier located at the foot of the Dhauladhar range. Some uncommon animal species, such as snowbirds, musk deer, and mountain goats, can be seen on the path. The trail is very straightforward and can be crossed without the assistance of a guide.

10. Sar Pass Trek

Sar Pass Trek is a high altitude trek to the Moderate, cross-country trekking tourist: the picturesque beauty, dense forest, the tricky path, snow strolling, Glacier, and a lofty reduction. Only in the month of April to September is the Pass available at a height of 14,000 Ft. Snow and snowstorms are constantly on top of the peaks. If you are new to this city, solo travel is not recommended.

It began with Jatin calling me and informing me of the Sar Pass Trek. Montainbytes organized the trek. Jatin told me too that it was a fantastic meeting in a long time, as we were all busy with our second carrier after withdrawing from the Indian Navy.
