At an altitude of 5319 Meters, Pin Parvati Pass is a great trek for seasoned trekkers. The Best season for trek is in the month of July to September. We will start our trek from the most beautiful region i.e. Pin Valley in Spiti. The stunning views of the Pin Parvati Pass is full of adventure and thrills as we cross over to the flourishing green Parvati Valley and beautiful landscapes of Kullu. The Snow Laden Trek gives an alpine feeling and experience of a lifetime. It’s a risky and difficult pass because of its high altitude, lengthy crossing area and heavy snowfall for most part of the year. The name is derived as it’s link Parvati Valley and Pin Valley of Spiti. The trek ends at Barsheni Village near Manikaran Gurudwara and hippie town of Kasol via beautiful campsite of Kheerganga and famous sulphur hot springs for rejuvenation and warm bath after a much long trek in snow and cold. It’s one of the rare pass of Himachal which was not discovered by shepherds. While Pin Valley is famous for its amazing views and incredible hues with the sunrise, Kasol and Parvati Valley are famous for its hot springs, ample greenery and breath-taking views of the gushing Parvati River and Manikaran Gurudwara thus making a favorite destination for pilgrims and backpackers alike.
