Pin Parvati Pass15 Days Trek


Few high passages across the main Himalayas spine provide the variety and rewards of high level trek as does the Pin Parvati, connecting the tributary of the Beas which it joins near the Bhunter and the Pin which flows into Spiti. With extreme difference in climate, Pin valley is much more rugged and barren than the Parvati valley. This cold desert valley with its snowy crags, cliff and crevasses, jagged rocks and other fossils make Pin valley a unique geological lab. Winter plays havoc here as ferocious blizzards and snowstorms send the glaciers cracking, ravaging the valleys rugged moonscape. But its long rain free summer is a prime time for the adventurers to see Spitis wild life in motion when the predatory snow leopard, red fox, marten, weasel, Himalayan Pika, bearded vulture, golden eagle, lynx and Tibetan wolf roam in the park- (area is conserved as a national park since 1987).

Setting off from Manikaran on our 10 days trek, we start trek through thick Alpine forest. A rewarding moments awaits us at Khir Ganga that is an open air natural hot sulphur bath. Progressively at first through dense alpine forest, followed by bushes, lakes, wild flower, pasture, peaks with long glacier, beginning to north lunar landscapes, sky rocketing peaks that illuminate the valley in dazzling hues of white, gray, green and golden yellow with the rising sun. Pin valley promises lingering pictures of starkness and rugged beauty of the Himalayan Cold Desert. Further crossing natural rock bridge at Pandu we arrive at Mantalai Lake. At top of Pin Parvati 5319 mtrs we will have panoramic view of numerous peaks: Parvati South, Parvati North, Pinnacle, Kullu Eiger all above 6`000 m. The pass itself is a transition zone between 2 different worlds. The trek ends at the small picturesque village of Sagnum / Mikkim, surrounded by lovely barley fields. From here, a jeep safari into the Spiti valley offers opportunities of visiting beautiful ancient gompas of Kungri, Tabo, Dhankar, Lahlung and Ki as well as Kibber and Tashi Gang; 2nd highest permanently inhabited villages in the world, before returning to Manali.
