Here is one amazing trek that takes you through some of the best and untouched places in Garhwal to the magnificent Sangla valley. What with crossing a pass that might make your 3 km jog in the park like a stroll. The Rupin Pass at an altitude of 4625 M offers views of the Kinner Kailash that are as up close and personal as one can get. The trek to the pass meanders along the Rupin River through picture pretty villages and into the evergreen Deodar forests. The descent from the pass is equally spectacular with the Verdant Sangla Valley and Baspa River there to greet you. This trek is the perfect amalgamation of Garhwal & Kinnaur.
