Overview

The journey across Sar Pass trek is one of the most well-known treks in India, and it is often undertaken during the summer months (April to June). During these months, it is one of the few hikes where hikers may readily find snow, making it more appealing to them. Kasol, which is a village located in the Kullu region of the state of Himachal Pradesh in India, is the starting point for the walk. Sar Pass trip, which is located at an elevation of 13,800 feet above sea level, provides the splendour of a stunningly lush environment and is a paradise for photographers, painters, and anyone who are passionate about nature. The Sar Pass trip is a journey that takes you through some of the most breathtaking scenery, including woods, meadows, and ice blankets, all of which are set against a backdrop of spectacular Himalayan peaks that are covered in snow. Camping at the high-altitude Grahan Village is only one of the many activities that are available throughout the walk. Other activities include hiking through pine woods and groves of rhododendrons throughout the trek. This is the greatest place to get away from the sweltering heat of the cities and to experience the chills of winter during the height of summer.

Trek Plan

From Kasol to Grahan village

Your journey to Sar Pass trek begins in the heart of Kasol and continues along the actual left bank of the Grahan Nallah. You can cover a lot of ground in a few of hours on this path since it is simple and well-traveled by locals. As one leaves the Grahan Nallah behind, the path becomes stony and climbs upward into the Rhododendron forest, away from the river’s right bank. Whole rhododendron petals are delicious, and the syrup may be made into a cool drink by mixing it with water. The final settlement on the trek, after an hour of strenuous climbing, is Grahan settlement, and from here on out, there is no cell network. Make your way to the hotel in Grahan for the night.

From Grahan village to Mung thach

As you open your eyes to a new day, see the majestic snow-capped mountains. Once you’ve had a substantial breakfast, go north from the Grahan campground towards Mung Thach via the path that the villagers often use. You will be able to see Sar Top, Nagaru, and Mung Thach on the mountain to your right after you have continued your trek for some time. Hike up the more rugged trail that disappears into the dense forest. Along with the steepening of the hill, the route also gets more difficult in some spots. Reach your day’s goal, Mung Thach, after making your way through the jungle. The Chandrakhani range and other significant Himalayan mountains are well seen from this vantage point. Spend the night in a jungle camp in Mung Thach.

From Mung Thach to Nagaru

Wake up to the sound of a crisp morning wind. Afterwards, you’ll set off on the wooded trail that leads from Mung Thach to Nagaru. The snow could be treacherous, and the slope drops sharply to the valley below, making this a challenging section of the hike. Reach Nagaru campground after a couple of hours of climbing a difficult ridge. Manikaran, a picturesque village in the Parvati valley, and the majestic mountains beyond are seen from a northerly vantage point. Spend the night in Nagaru’s camp.

From Nagaru to Biskeri thach via sar pass

Due to the steepness of the ascent in the snow, you should get an early start. You will be able to take in the breathtaking panoramas of Sar pass and the towering peaks of the Tosh valley once you reach the summit. You should remain at the summit for a short period of time to appreciate your success and to snap some great photographs to capture the event in time. Following that, you will be required to slide down the Biskeri, which is a really thrilling experience that is actually absolutely risk-free provided that certain safeguards are performed.  It is possible to go up to one km on the slide before reaching a more gradual slope in the valley. Over the course of an hour, you will have to across a few streams in order to get to the valley and, ultimately, the campground of Biskeri Thach. Staying in Biskeri Thach for the night over.

From Biskeri thach to Kasol

Admire the breathtaking panorama that Biskeri has to offer, which includes the pine woods, the towering mountains, and the green meadows. To descend from Biskeri, you will need to trek over a steep piece of ground that is surrounded by fence. Once you have traversed the thick woodland, you will see a brook that has a campground on the other side. Due to the fact that the twin towns of Pulga and Tulga are divided by a creek, the route that leads to the hamlet of Pulga is located to the left of the existing campground. The settlement of Barshaini may be reached by travelling over a bridge on the Parvati River, which is located in Tulga.  Overnight stay at Kasol’s hotel. And today is the last day of your Sar pass Trekking journey. Say goodbye to mountains and new friends, take the best memories to home. Board the vehicle to get back to your homes.
