A trek that often ranks in lists of difficult treks in India, the Rupin Pass trek certainly compensates with spectacular views of the Kinnaur Kailash mountains and the Sangla valley. For 8 days in the Himalayan wilderness, you'll hike under dark and dusky forests, climb tricky intersections over rocky mountain trails, make your way across sprawling acres of snow and camp under the stars on peaceful nights. Beginning from the hillside village of Sankri, this high-altitude trek will take you alongside the Rupin river and across the Rupin pass to conclude in the town of Sangla.
NOTE: A minimum of 6 travellers are required to book this trek to Rupin Pass.
