  • Trip introduction

    The Rupin Pass trek is a great trek for people with experience, as well as for fit beginners looking to stretch themselves. One day will be slightly difficult as it involves crossing the pass, which involves some amount of exertion. On this trek to Rupin Pass, you move from one state (Uttarakhand) to the other (Himachal), so you can expect lots of variety in terms of landscape, nature and culture. The highlight of this trek is scaling the Rupin Pass, a beautiful high altitude Himalayan pass. Usually, this is a not a very difficult pass to negotiate but at times, depending upon the snow conditions it can pose quite a challenge. You will stay at beautiful campsites and enjoy some peaceful exploring on rest days.
