Shimla – Kafnu Drive/7-8 hrs

A long drive from Shimla and Narkanda will take us to a small town called, Sarahan. The town is famous for its 200 year old idol, sitting in the Bhimakali temple which is in itself a rare combination of Buddhist and Hindu architecture.

Kafnu – Mulling (3100m) Drive/3 hrs & Trek/6 hrs

After breakfast, we hit the road and drive from Saharan to the starting point of Bhaba pass trek, Kafnu, which will ultimately lead us to the Bhabha pass.

Phustirang (4000m) – Bhabha pass (4850m) – Baldar (3900m) Trek/7-8 hrs

But, as usual, all this effort and heavy breathing will be rewarded with a fantastic view of various mountain ranges and the famous Pin Parvati pass. You will feel like you have achieved something. Next, we begin our descent towards the Spiti side.

 As we promised, each day, the scenery will change. After walking for a couple of hours, we will tread upon a stark trans-HImalayan landscape which confirms your welcome in Spiti.

Overnight stay at the hotel.
