About Rupin Pass:
There are several passes which connect the Baspa valley of Kinnaur to the Garhwal
in south. Once these passes were used by shepherds and traders rather than using
the circuitous Hindustan-Tibet road in present days. The route offers wide range of
landscape, altitude and gradient. The trail passes through Pine, Oak and Fir forests,
interior villages in the river valleys at lower elevation while beautiful meadows
(referred as Thach in local language), alpine wild flowers, waterfalls, and steep ice
fields on higher altitude. From the snowbound pass there are spectacular views of
Kinnaur Kailash range and other peaks of Charang Ghati ridge.
Access to Dhaula (The Trek Base) and Return:
Depending upon the trek members we can arrange a pickup from Dehradun to
Dhaula and drop from Sangla to Shimla. This will be shared by the team members
on actual basis. Otherwise a trekker can reach Dhaula by public vehicle:
1) There are 2/3 privately operated buses from Dehradun (near DDN railway
station on Gandhi road) To Sankri. Get down at Netwar (may take up to 10
hrs) which is 190 Km away. Hire a private taxi to Dhaula. Dhaula is another
12 Km on bumpy road. The buses start at 5:30/6/7 am.
2) While returning from Sangla one can either take the overnight bus to Shimla
at 5 pm or board the bus next morning at 8 am. The 235 Km journey will take
10 to 12 hours. From Shimla there are frequent bus services for Chandigarh
and Delhi.
