The 25-kilometer trip passes through gorgeous Mountainous areas, green-carpeted pastures, beautiful campgrounds, and tiny mountain villages, culminating in a breathtaking view of the Hanuman Tibba and Seven Sisters.
Hampta Pass Trek
The most dramatic crossover hike in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas is Hampta Pass Trek. This 5-day trekking adventure takes you to an impressive elevation of 14,039 feet over a distance of 35 kilometres. The easy to moderate journey will wow you with its many scenery, which include sheer rock walls, broad meadows, sparkling streams, silver waterfalls, hanging glaciers, stunning campsites, and the desolate and frigid deserts of Lahaul and Spiti. The contrasting geography and the crossover hike from the lush meadows of Kulu Valley to the breathtakingly bare Chandra Valley in Lahaul Spiti are highlights of the trek.
Pin Parvati Trek
Pin Parvati trip is your genuine calling if you’re looking for 11 days of pure thrill! Pin Parvati Pass’s tremendous height of 17,457 feet leaves little room for imagination.

Pin Valley, Kinner Kailash, Fluted peak, Shrikhand Mahadev, Parbati Goat Head peak, Bara Shrigiri, and Kulu Makalu are all breathtakingly beautiful. The 110-kilometer challenging level journey features a changing landscape of lush prairie grasses on one end and the harsh barren desert of the Spiti region on the other.
Chanderkhani Pass trip is a short but picturesque three-day walk that covers a distance of 19 kilometres and takes you to an elevation of 12,000 feet. This journey, like so many others in the Himalayan region, is heavily influenced by mythology. The native deity of Malana, identified as Jamlu, is said to have carried a bagful of Gods and opened it at the pass. They were blown to surrounding summits by a powerful wind, and they landed on these mountains under the powerful surge of wind.
