Trek Overview

Stretching across the two Himalayan states of India, Rupin pass trek is a high altitude trek that features a brilliant spectacle of natural diversity and the wilderness of nature. This trek is highly popular among the Indian as well as foreign trekkers and those planning this arduous journey this summer season could expect a great expedition ahead. The journey begins from Dhaula in Uttarakhand and concludes at Sangla in Himachal Pradesh and would require you to cross the state border for entering Himachal near Kinnaur.

You will start trekking from greener landscapes and as the journey proceeds, these greener tracts would give way to snow patches, followed by the vast snow fields as you head towards Rupin Pass. The trek would become more and more difficult and the weather equally challenging with every progress that you make. Hence, acclimatization, adequate hydration and snow-trekking tools would always come handy.

The Natural Diversity

About 80% of your journey would be in Himanchal and you would get to know about the diversity as well intermingling of the local cultures of the two states.  Rocks, snow bridges, waterfalls, streams, habitations, forests, religious sites, lofty peaks - its all there for you to explore and admire. While trekking 5-6 hours on an average while advancing 10 kms each day could be severely demanding, the gifts of nature would always be rewarding. With opulence of the Himalayas in full display, the nature teaches us how the travails of life are proportionately rewarded.     

The Scenic Beauty

The Rupin Pass lies at an elevation of about 4600 meters. As the trek begins, you can stop by the temple of Pokhu Devta, revered and worshiped by the people of these hills. The lofty peaks of the Himalayas would offer fabulous scenery and walking through the woods rife with conifers and Rhododendron trees would be a magnificent experience. What makes this trek quite special is the wilderness and extravagance of nature in the form of waterfalls, snow bridges and snow fields. It would an experience of a lifetime to stand on the snow bridge with Rupin flowing down below you after falling from a waterfall in front of you. The gushing waters of this river and its tributaries would mark much of this journey.   

How to get There
