  • Trip introduction

    Take on the challenge of a moderately difficult, snow trek in Himachal Pradesh with this 6-day trek to Sar Pass. You'll spend the week surrounded by dense woods of pine and oak with beautiful views of snow-capped mountain peaks in the Parvati Valley. As you begin climbing from the town of Kasol, you'll encounter challenging and steep inclines on the trail, leading you up to an elevation of over 13,500 feet. En route, you'll stay in alpine tents pitched at some of the most scenic mountain ridges and meadows in the Himalayas. As you gain altitude and get closer to Sar Pass, you'll find yourself trekking in inches of thick snow, covering almost everything around you.

    This trek to Sar Pass is recommended only for fit beginners and experienced trekkers since it involves a moderately difficult trail with sections of steep inclines and deep snow.
