Trekking - Pin Valley

Pin Valley is most beautiful and adventurous, because of the 4810 Mt high Pin Parvati Pass which separates the Pin from the Parvati valley. The trek starts at Manikaran in Parvati valley and takes you over to Pin valley. On the way you find a rich fauna and flora with flowers and spices as well as fossil rich rocks. Be prepared to enter the land of the ibex and snow leopard.

  • DAY 5: TUNDABJOJ - THAKURKAN (3400 Mt)
    Initially you will be crossing rocks and dense vegetation. After a few tiring kilometers, the trail descends to the riverbank. The next section up the valley poses some difficulties, as the trail frequently skirts rockfaces. Camp at Thakurkan above the cliff section of the valley.
     
  • DAY 6: THAKURKAN - MANTALAI LAKE (4070 Mt)
    The trail passes a side river by a natural rock bridge. Just above this crossing is the Pandu bridge, another natural rock bridge over the Parvati river. Then the trail ascends gradually through a series of flower meadows. Camp at a grassy campsite near Mantalai lake.

  • DAY 9: BASE OF PIN-PARVATI PASS - PIN-PARVATI PASS (4810 Mt) - PIN VALLEY CAMP
    Today's trek leads you up to Pin-Parvati Pass over several snowfields. (You should use a rope, especially early in the season when the crevasses are hidden.)
