Zanskar to Dharamsala

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 1987).  Unlike the most Himalayan mountain passes, discover by sheperds in search of  good pasture for their herds of sheep, yaks, goat.  Probably one of the most finest trekking route in Himachal Pradesh.  This combo trek offers some of great peaks that closely adjust all along route are over 6000m.

 

Beginning to this trip, we start first with discovering ancient villages and monasteries of Lahaul and Spiti. For better acclimating before starting trek from Mud viilage in Pin valley.  Exploring great sites of Kardang, Triloknath, Miyar valley,  Shashur, lapchang, Piukar in Lahaul valley we travel along the Chandra river and visit the beautiful lake of Chandratal known as moon of lake.

Fossils trails of Langza hikkim Comik.  Another great sites are Lalung, Dhankhar and Tabo. An ancient village and 1000 years monastic complex has many things to offer and discover. Finally we travel to Pin valley at Kungri gompa. And start our magnificient trek at village of Guling. Crossing some picturesque villages of Kara, Tilling, Sagnum and last village of Mud.   we head up towards pin parvati pass along the pIn river. Pin parvati pass is transition zone between two valley, its just not a passage that connecting two different valley. This pass first explored by an English , Mr. Dane Louis in 1897. At top of Pin Parvati 5319 mtrs we will have panoramic view of numerous peaks: Parvati South, Parvati North, Pinnacle, Kullu Eiger more than 6`000 mtrs.  Down the valley of Parbati the landscape changes from dry deserted to alpine pasture to dense forest. And first part of trek terminates at Barshani before Manikaran. We will drive to Manali via visiting nagger castle and Roerich art Musuem.  

After refreshing in Manali we start our second part of trek of Bara-Bangahal, home of Gaddi sheperds of Himachal Pradesh.  We Cross Dhauladhar range of Himalaya. Dhauladhar range divides Kullu and Kangra valley. We cross high pass of Kalihani over 4500 m and trek along the river.
