Pin Bhaba Pass is one of the best crossover treks in Himachal Pradesh. It features some of the most dramatic shifts in landscapes and cultures. The trail starts from the lush grasslands of Kinnaur. On the first two days, you’re surrounded by thick forests of silver birch, oak and pine. The vegetation thins down as you move further up. But nothing prepares you for the stunning view on the other side of the pass. The brown desert of the Pin valley is fascinating! You can keep watching it all day – taking on different shades of pink, purple and brown.
Hampta Pass is an unusual, special pass. It climbs out of lush green valleys of Kullu to a perpendicular overhang, high in the mountains.
