Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand | Group size- Max. 09
Rupin Pass, which spans over 65 kilometres between the states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, is unquestionably one of India's grandest cross-country treks in India. Rupin Pass is one of the oldest passes used by the locals to cross over Uttarakhand & Himachal, the pass connects Givind Pashu Vihar National Park to Sangla Village in Kinnaur. Every moment is unforgettable when you’re on the Rupin Pass trek as it offers picturesque views of colourful landscapes that leave you speechless. Whether it's a journey through dense rhododendron and pine forests, meandering through a hanging village, traversing vast glacial valleys, climbing Rupin Pass's treacherous gully, gliding down snow chutes to Ronti Gad, or climbing to the top of a waterfall.
The view from the top is majestic as the Kinnaur regions appear like Himalayan dreamlands spread under the high mountain peaks, amongst which one of them is Mt. Kinner Kailash, it is not easy to distinguish the peak amongst the high rises of Kinnaur, yet once spotted, it will take your breath away. Rupin pass is one beautifully challenging trek, and it would require a person to have some prior experience trekking over 3500 meters in the Himalayas.
Haridwar to Dhaula (1560 m)
The journey begins from the amazing town of Haridwar, a land that has a unique spot at the centre of Hindu religion, the drive gives you a chance to see the Shivalik mountainscape of Himalayas. After crossing Purola, a small town, the whole scenery changes into the dense forest of oak, and continues till Dhaula. The last one hour of this road before reaching Dhaula is a bumpy ride. Dhaula is a very small village having not more than 5-6 houses, next to Rupin river. Stay at camps.
