Parvati Valley Trek

Dream Wanderlust

Date of Publication: Aug 19 , 2013

Pin-Parvati Pass (17,000 ft) trek is one of the most challenging trek routes in Himachal Pradesh. This holly route connects the lush green Parvati Valley to the barren land of Pin Valley in Spiti. We started from Varseni to reach the village Mudh in Kaza through Pin-Parvati Pass in June 2013. Unfortunately, in that period of time the route after Mantalai Lake was covered with heavy snow which stopped us to get the Parvati Base Camp. However, we explored the heavenly beauty of splash green Parvati Valley.
