This 7 day trek route connects Rupin river valley in Garhwal region of Uttarakhand to Baspa Valley (also known as Sangla valley) in Kinnaur region of Himachal Pradesh through Rupin Pass in Dhauladhar Range.
About the trek
Rupin is a stream that merges into Tons (a major tributary of Yamuna) near Naitwar, in Uttarakhand. From Naitwar , the route moves upstream along Rupin, passing through village Sewa , then to Dodra Kwar region of Himachal Pradesh, wide Rupin valley, pine forests, beautiful wild flowers and high altitude pastures. Rupin waterfall is a 3 stage waterfall and traversing the icy slopes near it before crossing Rupin pass, is an adventure in itself. Then we move onto Ronti gad and descend to Sangla Kanda , high altitude pastures above Sangla in Kinnaur, with magnificent views of Kinner Kailash range peaks ( Kinner Kailash, Jorkandedn , Raldang ) and charming Baspa Valley ( Sangla Valley ) said to be one of the most beautiful valleys in Himalayas.
