Pin Parbati Pass Trek Kullu

Duration: Maximum - o8 Days

About This Trek:
Highest altitude - 5319m, Duration - Eight days, Season - August-September, Grade - Very Difficult - Sir Louis Dane first discvered this high pass in August 1884 as entry point to Spiti fom Kullu.  It is very difficult pass.  Not only because it lies very high and remains under heavy snow for most of the year but also because it involves very long journey beyond habitation.  Besides it can not be located easily.  Experienced guide is needed on this trail.

This pass links Parvati Valley in Kullu with Pin Valley of Spiti.  Hence it derives the name Pin Parvati pass.  Perhaps this is the only important pass in Himachal Pradesh that was not discovered by enterprising local shepherds.  Manikaran (1700m), a popular tourist place is the first destination on this trail.  Manikaran is famous for hot water springs and a gurudwara.  People believe tat shiva and Parvati spent eleven years at Manikaran.  Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the first Guru of the Sikhs had also visited this place.  Frequent buses are available from Kullu to Manikaran.  Now the road extends further up in Parvati Valley due to construction of Parvati Hydro Electric Project.  The pass can be crossed in following stages after starting from Manikaran.

:  I t i n e r a r y :

All the treks of Kullu (Himachal Pradesh India) is connected by 'our coach' with Delhi, Chandigarh, Jammu and Srinagar.

DAY-1

Manikaran to Pulga (405 hrs) - Porters and guides for the journey can be arranged here but one must verify the credentials of the guides.  They should be experienced and must have traveled on the trail.  From Manikaran the trek progresses on the right bank.  A brad forest road leads to Pulga nearly twelve kilometeres away.

DAY-2

Pulga-Khirgana (3-5hrs) - Khirgan is at a distance of ten kilometers from Pulga.  Experienced trekkers can make to Khirgana (260m) in a day from Manaikaran after an early start.  Khirgana has hot springs and a temple.  It is a beautiful place with prestine environment, hot water springs and temple.

DAY-3

Khir Ganga to Tunda Bhuj (4-5 hrs) - The trek traverses on the left bank of Parvati and moves through thick forest and sloping grasslands.  Several nallahs are crossed on the way.  Path climbs up to reach Tunda Bhuj (3285m) camp about eleven kilometers from Khirgana.

DAY-4

Tunda Bhuj to Padu Pul (6-8 hrs) - It is a long stretch of 20 kilometers after Tunda Bhuj to the camp ground ahead of Pandu Pul.  The trek passes through coniferous and bhojpatra trees at first, later vegetation changes and the trail heads up across sloping pasture and bushes.  It then progress over stones and boulders to Thakur Khan Thatch (3560 m). The shepherds camp on nearby ridge in summers with flock.  A Seo Thatch (Pandu Pul) one crosses Bara Dwari Tatch at about 3900 m before reaching Mantalai.  All these are suitable places for camping for the night.  One must access the strength of the group members and ensure that everybody gets adequate rest before taking off the next day.

DAY-5

Pandu Pul to Base Camp (8-10 hrs) - The day's walk can be twenty kilometers before halting for the night depending upon the position of previous camp.  Altitude keeps rising, air becomes thinner and temperature drops considerably and it gets difficult to carry on at a reasonable speed.  The trekkers must continue at a speed that is well within their limits without taxing themselves. Extra effort to maintain speed should be avoided.  Another important thing is that all group members should be avoided.  Another important thing is that all group members should travel together.

The trek first climb to Mantalai (4100 m), a small lake held sacred as the source of Parvati.  Parvati river flows in many chnnels near the lake.  There is a rock cave near the lake.  There is a rock cave near the lake for shelter.  Further up, the eastern valley.  Generally trekkers who do not have a guide get confused about the directions after Mantalai and lose their way.  Base camp is to be established nearly at 4400 m on snow.

DAY-6

Pass Base to Pin Valley Camp Across the Pass (10-12 hrs) - Over scree and moraine-covered slopes the route is in permanent snow.  The pass (5319 m) is soon visible as the lowest point on the ridge.  There are crevasses in this area and one must be careful.  Small temple with trishuls marks the Pass.  Descent on Lahaul side is also steep and is on snow.  After one hour or so the snow clears and the path is on boulders.  After the glacier, the path goes down along Pin and camp is established generally at an altitude of around 4000 m. Trekkers should try to go down as far as possible depending upon stamina and time available and camp at reasonably safe place.

DAY-7

Pin Valley Camp to Mud (6-8 hrs) - The terrain after the pass is typical of Spiti.  It is generally barren.  The path goes down on the left bank of Pin river to reach mud village nearly ten to twelve kilometers down.  Site of a village after so many days in the wild is thrilling.

DAY-8

Mud-Sangam-Kaza - The train then leads to Sangam village 12 kilometers away.  The shortest route is along the left bank but at two places you have to climb steep scree to cross the landslide.  The walk to the village takes about six hours.  There is a rest house.  Kaza is twenty-five kilometers from Sagnam.
