Rupin Pass Trekking

Trekking is about walking in the hills and camping. Carrying all your requirements like food, clothes and shelter with you as you move along a trail.

I have done the one of beautiful trekking in Sep 2016, which Rupin Pass. Rupin Pass is a high altitude pass across the Himalaya mountain range in state of Himachal Pradesh, India. It lies on a traditional shepherd and hiking route which starts from Dhaula in Uttarakhand and ends in Sangla in Himachal Pradesh.

Trekking is one of the ways to visit places which offer great panoramic views and pleasant environment. The places which one can visit only by walking, since there are no roads up to these places. It brings one closer to the nature and brings the best out of an individual. For a complete answer one has to go on a trek or camp to find out the joys and advantages of going to the wild.

Any reasonably fit person may undertake trekking. Persons having heart problems should not undertake tough treks. Persons with knee problems must remember that trekking involves walking up and down rough and steep slopes and bad knees may not take the rigorous of the activity. A person who can run 05-10 Kms without any problems and who does not suffer from any ailments may have no difficult in trekking.

Chances of a fit trekker suffering from sickness are quite low. People should avoid competition in high mountains and should not push themselves beyond their limits. Before a trip physical conditioning, medical check-up may be of immense help.

Let me tell you about the Rupin Pass Trek that we have done in the month of Sep-2016. We were group of 4 friends started our journey from Delhi to Dehradoon via train and from dehradoon to Mori-Sankri via private Taxi, it is around 7-8 hours by road. Sankri is last stop where we can stay and relax overnight before starting the trek for Rupin Pass.

Next day morning we started from Sankri to Dhaula which is around 8 km from where we need to start the trek.

It took us 5 days of Trek from Dhaula to Sangla. On the Day1 we reached to Sewa. where we have done camping for overnight.

On the Day2 we have started further from Sewa to Jhaka village. Jhaka is last village after that we will not find any village until Sangla. Second day i did the trekking on the slippers, this was also unique experience. I suggest to have nice trekking shoes while trekking – but you can try slipper if route is plan in the way, specially downhill. It will also give some breathing time for your foot.

This is place where i took risk, this i have realized when i went little further. There is almost 100 feet slope in this area. This kind of risk should be avoided.
