Trekking Itineraries:

TREK TO BHABHA PASS

Day 01: Pick up from  Shimla & Sarhan in Sarhan Visit bhima Kali Temple Over night Hotel (6,7 hrs)

Day 02: Sarhan To kafnu (5, 6 hrs) overnight camp

Day 03: Kafnu to Mulling (5 hrs)
First part of the walk is all along the Bhaba River but slowly the trail climbs through the incredible mixed Cedar forests. On the way we pass through few old wooden houses in the middle of the forest. One the way we get introduced to an amazing variety of Himalayan flora. Slowly the valley opens into an incredible meadow located at the bank of River Bhabha, carpeted with variety of alpine flowers it set a beautiful glade amidst prime cedar trees. Overnight camp.

Day 04: Mulling to Kara (5 hrs)
Start on a flat meadow, with alpine flowers all around. The trail narrows as you reach the junction of two streams, with rare Himalayan Blue Poppy Flower in the middle of the rocks. Cross the stream that you have been following from the campsite, keeping this stream to your right; continue climbing up on till you reach the open pasture grounds of Kara. Overnight camp

Day 05: Kara to Pustring (4 hrs)
From Kara we enter into the left valley. As we climb gradually up the valley, the valley gets bit narrower but the scenery wins one’s heart with alpine flowers on the valley floor and waterfalls on the adjoining hills. Today we camp at the foot of the Pass.

Day 06: Pustring to Bada baldar via Bhabha Pass (7 to 8 hrs)
Climbing steeply, the going is rugged for most of the day, there is no defined trail, walking over moraine, scree, boulders and a push through the snowfields to the top. The top of the pass offers great contrast to both sides, towards Spiti, it is the chocolate colored barren mountains and to the Kinnaur side it is all green. In few meters, no place on earth can create such a difference in the vegetation as Bhabha pass. First part of the descent involves ice for around hundred meters. The later part is descending through the moraine till we get to the bottom. From here it is another half an hour through the boulders then we enter the main valley. To the left, another valley makes its way through to the Pin Parvati Pass. The valley here expands to all sides with amazing color of mountains surrounding from all sides. One and a half hours of more journeys through the impressive surroundings takes one to Phaldar. Overnight camp.

Day 07: Bada baldar to Mud farka  (5 to 6 hrs)
Today’s trek is all the way through the Pin Valley. The landscape here is dry and barren with mountains of different colour. Suddenly we catch the sight of a green patch right in the front later we discover few houses. Set in the completely barren surroundings the village of Mud is like an oasis in the desert. The village of Mud lies across the Pin River. The village gompa is set impressively on a cliff between two streams. Overnight camp.
