Chanderkhani Pass trek: What to expect

Because of the steep incline, the Chanderkhani Pass trek is rated at moderate difficulty. You can expect some good climbs, but you're always free to go at your own pace and take as many breaks as you want. You'll trek alongside ancient shrines, rocky outcrops, ancient tribal villages with traditional wooden homes, deep forests, snow-capped mountain peaks and bubbling mountain streams. Nights on the Chanderkhani Pass trek are beautiful as you'll camp out in tents, amidst terraced green fields and picturesque meadows.

Chanderkhani Pass trek: Combo options

The Chanderkhani Pass trek is often combined with a visit to Malana village, which lies beyond the pass. The region around Malana is fairly remote and so the culture and environment are untouched. The village, shrouded in mystery and myth, has fascinated travellers for years now, and the locals have only recently allowed outsiders into their village. This is a favourite trek route for those looking for the Chanderkhani Pass trek, especially as it only adds one day to the itinerary.

Chanderkhani Pass trek: Route

Your Chanderkhani Pass trek begins in Naggar, taking you through forests of walnut, wild cherry and oak trees. You’ll climb gradually to Rumsu, and go through rhodendron and birch forests to Naya Tapru. You’ll see stunning views of the Pir Panjal range and the Malana Valley in the distance. In about 4-5 hours, you reach the highlight of the Chanderkhani Pass trek, which is the actual pass. The view from the top is astounding. After spending time exploring the pass, you return to Naya Tapru, and begin your descent to Naggar.

Chanderkhani Pass trek: When to go

In any month, the Chanderkhani Pass trek is beautiful, but during the winter, it turns into dreamland. The snow weighs down the branches of trees, lends a soft muffled quality to the sounds around, and caps the peaks around. However, the most popular season for the Chanderkhani Pass trek is from early June to the end of September.

Chanderkhani Pass: What to carry

Depending on when you’re going on the Chanderkhani Pass trek, you’ll need to carry the right trekking gear. At any time of the year, you’ll need fleece jackets, woollen gloves and hat, and thermal layers. If you’re doing the Chanderkhani Pass trek during the winter months, you’ll need trekking shoes fit for snow trekking, as well as thicker and more effective winter wear.

Trip Description
The Valley of Flowers trek is known to be one of the most beautiful treks in the Himalayas and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your trek takes you into a valley that fills with carpets of flowers for just a few weeks every year. You'll trek past waterfalls and small streams, over verdant meadows, past the snowy peaks of mountains around.

The Valley of Flowers trek is beautiful all year round, but the prime blooming season is between mid-July to mid-September. During this time, you'll see the most famous flower, the Blue Primula, amongst other Himalayan wildflowers.

This trek is a fairly easy one, but it includes the thrill of visit to Hemkund Sahib, a sacred gurudwara that lies beside a glacial lake, which is a bit of a steep ascent. You'll also stop on your way back to visit Badrinath temple.

Trip Description
If you're looking for an adventurous trek, but don't have a lot of time to spare, the Malana-Chanderkhani trek is perfect for you. It takes you high up to a pass at about 12,000 feet, into the big peaks of the Himalayas, all in just 5 days. The route to Chanderkhani pass lies along the top of a ridge, and involves negotiating some tricky descents, crossing a gorge, and walking beside the gushing Beas river. The highlight for culture buffs is a visit to Malana village, an ancient village whose people believe they are descendents of Alexander the Great. You'll get to see a lifestyle and a belief system that is different from anything you've seen before.
