  • Trip introduction

    This trek to Pin Parvati Pass is on the top of the list for most experienced trekkers in India. You'll be in the middle of the Himalayas, far away from civilization, trekking through gorgeous landscapes for 12 days. Your trail winds through alpine forests, slopes dotted with wild flowers, and with rivers and lakes to stop by. And that's all before you get to the Pin Parvati Pass. Getting to the Pass is a real victory, and rewards you with fabulous views of the other side, the Spiti side, with rugged barren landscape.

    Do note: this trek is not to be taken lightly. The Pin Parvati Pass trek is considered one of the most challenging trek in the Himalayas. This 12 day trek requires some amount of experience because you'll be crossing wide glaciers, climbing steep slopes, and trekking through thick forests. Additionally, once you begin, you'll be days away from civilization, so there's no turning back. You could say that this one is only for the true bravehearts.

    Destination

    Located at a height of 17450 feet, the Pin Parvati Pass is the only link between Parvati Valley of Kullu and the Pin Valley in Spiti. You'll start from Manali, and trek through the green valleys of Himachal Pradesh, through fruit orchards, blossoming wildflowers, and sparkling rivers and streams. Once you reach Pin Parvati Pass, you'll see the dry, arid landcaps of the Spiti valley, with its sprawling expanse of brown and grey rock under a blue sky.
