Special about the tour:
The adventures trek joins Pin valley of Spiti Himalayas ( Mud village) to the Parvati valley in Kullu valley in the state of Himachal Pradesh in North India. It is believed to be the only pass in Himachal Pradesh Himalayas that was not discovered by enterprising local shepherds. Sir Louis Dane, an Englishman first discovered this high pass trek in 1884 as a short route, entry point to Spiti from Kullu valley.
The Pin Parvati Pass (5,319 metres) lies quiet high in the Himalayas and remains under heavy snow for most of the time in the year. The trek involves long trekking hours beyond habitation and is considered as one of the most difficult and adventures trek in this part of Indian Himalayas due to snow and high altitude. People of all age group can take this trek but it requires lot of physical stamina and mental strength to complete it. The trails are ill-defined and badly washed out in rainy season. Route finding inside the thick forest of Great Himalayan National Park can confuse even the experienced trekker, sometimes..!
The trek starts from Barsheni village in Parvati valley above Manikaran in Kullu region and as you continue trekking to Mud village in the cold, dry, beautiful deserted Spiti valley, you will notice a change in the landscapes, religions of people and their culture. Kullu region & Parvati valley in the foothills of Himalayas are mainly dominated by the Hindus, their temples, culture and religion but the Spiti region in the Greater Himalayas is a Buddhist dominant area with many old Buddhist monasteries and villages. You will experience all different cultures while trekking on the Pin Parvati Pass trek.
The hot water springs of Parvati Kund at Khirganga the picturesque meadows of Parvati valley, lovely waterfalls on the way, a wide variety of alpine flowers, plants, birds and animals, natural made bridges, glacial lake at Mantalai, magnificent mountain views with the myriad rock formations of Pin Valley, the bird’s-eye view of the Parvati and Pin valley from the Pin Parvati pass will fascinate you and will provide a life time memorable, unforgettable trekking experience through the Great Himalayas to you…!
