SEASON : July to August.
MAX. ALTITUDE : (5300m).
GRADING : Moderate.
Duration : 15 DAYS.


Few high passages across the main Himalayas spine provide the variety and rewards of high level trek as does the Pin Parvati trek, connecting the tributary of the Beas which it joins near the Bhunter and the Pin which flows into Spiti. With extreme difference in climate, Pin valley is much more rugged and barren than the Parvati valley. This cold desert valley with its snowy crags, cliff and crevasses, jagged rocks and other fossils make Pin valley a unique geological lab. Winter plays havoc here as ferocious blizzards and snowstorms send the glaciers cracking, ravaging the valleys rugged moonscape. But its long rain free summer is a prime time for the adventurers to see wild life in motion when the predatory snow leopard, red fox, marten, weasel, Himalayan Pika, bearded vulture, golden eagle, lynx and Tibetan wolf roam in the park- (area is conserved as a national park since 1987).
