Rupin Pass Trek: An Enchanting Experience! - Uttaranchal

8D/7N of trek passing villages, witnessing local life, and places unspoilt by development

Starts from 16800

This is a remote and beautiful trek of medium intensity starting from Dhaula in Uttarakhand, passing through Sangla in Himachal Pradesh over the enchanting Rupin Pass following the enchanting Rupin River.

This is a 8 day trek passing through several scenic villages, shepherd camps, and the alpine meadows in Govind National Park with mesmerizing views. Rupin is a tributary of the tons river and meets Supin River at Netwar. Untouched by development, this is an extremely beautiful location to trek and observe Garhwal and Kinnauri culture. The style of housing differentiates between both these cultures very prominently. You may encounter snow leading up to the pass in the early summer months further making it an exciting trek and great experience!
