The Pin Parvati Pass, nestled at an altitude of 17,380 feet above sea level, in Himachal Pradesh, forms the gateway to the Spiti Valley from the Kullu Valley.Trek route is through lush green meadows, stately forests and narrow valleys. You are accompanied by the constant roar of the river Parbati till you reach Mantalai Lake on the 4th day. There are few other treks in Himalayas which offer a complete experience like Pin Parwati Pass Trek does. The journey begins from Bhuntar, a place 50kms before Manali on Delhi- Manali Highway. We start with a road drive on serpentine road from Bhuntar to Pulga via famous town of Kasol. On the first day we trek upto Kheerganga which is also a very popular weekend hiking destination. Kheerganga is also known for its hot water spring which is something not be missed when you are here. On the second day as we hike further from Kheerganga, the civilization suddenly disappear. You can only spot few Ghaddi settlements here & there. The camping site of Tundabhoj on second day is straight out of heaven. Huge mountains with cascading waterfalls is a sight to behold in Tundabhoj. Third day is one of the most adventurous day. Credit for this goes to three makeshift bridges on gushing river Parwati. These are known as :Tedha Pul, Trolley Pul & PanduPul. On fourth day we trek to the source of River Parwati which is Mantalai Lake. As we approach the Lake,you are welcomed by a criss cross of small rivulets of water which have a milky colour. This looks as if milk is flowing through hundreds of such streams. This landscape is also known as Mini Mantalai. On this day we camp near serene Manatalai Lake. After Manatalai Lake as we cross the pass we enter the beautiful yet harsh Spiti Valley. The change in Terrain & Landscape is very contrasting. Travelling all the way from lush green forests of Himachal now you reach the barren landscapes of Spiti. We end the trek in Mud village. A short road drive from Mudh will take us to Kaza where we stay in a Hotel for the night. On the last day we drive from Kaza to Manali where the trip ends.
