Pin Parvati Trek Overview

A trek full of contrasts – culturally as well as geographically. The Pin Parvati trek is one of the most popular treks in the western himalayan region. Each day on the Pin Parvati trek the landscape assumes a new look. From the lush green forests, widely extended meadows and the streams and waterfalls of the Parvati valley we approach the alpine area with glaciers and tremendous moraines.

Starting from Manikaran the first day of the Pin Parvati trek is an easy 18km walk to pulga. Next day the team cross the hot spring of Khirganga where Lord Shiva has said to have meditated. From Khirganga trek crosses dense forest and meadows and a steep climb to Tunda Bhuj. Half way into the Pin Parvati trek the team would be able to see the Mantalai Glacier, the source of the river Parvati.

After trekking to the top of the Pin Parvati pass we enter the vast mountain desert region of Spiti. Pin Valley, where we finish our trek is the only place in Spiti where the old Tantrik Nying sect of Buddhism is followed. The Kungri Monastery in the Pin valley is its main centre and the monastery is believed to have been founded by Padmasambhava.

With its snowy crags, cliffs, crevasses, jagged rocks and other fossils, Pin valley is a unique geological lab. It is also an area to spot the snow leopard, red fox, marten, weasel, Himalayan Pika, bearded vulture, golden eagle, lynx and Tibetan wolf.
