For years the Pin Parvati trail has been at the top of every serious trekkers list. The reason is because it is the perfect experience for an adventure lover! This challenging trail starts in the Kullu valley and makes its way through the lush green meadows to the cold yet stunning landscape of Spiti, but not before taking you through one of the most stunning passes in our country!

The variety of landscape, the flora and fauna encountered on the trail, the expansive campsites make it a trek to remember! Ready for the challenge?

The area: This trek starts in the Kasol, Kullu valley and ends in the Mudh, Spiti Valley. The Kullu valley is a prime tourist and adventure destination. Its unparalleled beauty along with easy accessibility has attracted many adventurists. No wonder some call it the Chamonix of India. On the other hand Spiti has a beauty of its own. This cold desert comes to life around this season showing off colours that are hardly seen elsewhere.

We’ve been organizing treks for over four years and have had many female trekkers trek with us. In fact, a lot of them come solo for treks.

In all the camps where the accommodation is in guest houses/home stays, there will be proper toilets. On the day of camping, we will have toilet tents, the standard, most hygienic way of answering nature’s call. A deep pit will be dug in the ground and once you’re done, you will have to use a shovel & throw in some dirt from a mound of dirt kept nearby. These will be dry toilets with no water hence please carry tissue roll for the toilet tent (refrain from using wet wipes as they are not bio degradable), for the rest of the days, you can carry rolls as per your convenience.

On day 1 and on the last day you may get bathing facilities at the home stay. Through the rest of the trek, there are no bathing facilities at campsites.

Tents do not have charging stations.
