Why Pin Bhaba Is A Must-Do Trek?

We always keep hearing about the Pin Bhabha Pass as a comparison to the Pin Parvati Pass Trek. In reality, they are extremely different treks. Though they have only Pin Valley in common. Pin Bhabha Pass is the confluence of the Pin and Bhabha valleys. That also means it is the perfect mixture of Himalayan greenery and aridness.

The Bhabha side of the trek is a cruise to livelihood. It is filled with dense alpine forests of Pine, Oak, and Silver Birch. The beginning of the trek is through long dense trees alongside the Bhabha river. Very rarely is there long trudging through pine forests. Slowly as you gain height huge grasslands flourished with vibrant blossoms come into the picture. Most of the campsites are on pastures with the Bhabha River and lakes beside the tents. Kara grasslands are the most popular amongst shepherds. Goats, horses, etc. can be seen in abundance here.


The more you rise above, gradually the vegetation is lost to scree, snow, and moraines. The path to the Pin Bhabha Pass will test your endurance just like any other pass trek. But the moment you reach the Pass, it is a complete contradiction to the sights seen until now. Suddenly the brown, yellow, and red mountains pop up while entering Pin Valley. This marks the start of Spiti. This turning of scenery is awesome and remains in my memories forever.

The Spiti region is astoundingly astonishing and mindblowing. One will be amazed by the beauty of nature. And the surprises don’t stop even after you reach Kaza. One last element of the trek remains, which is the stunning Rohtangs pass on the road towards Manali.

About The Trek

The Pin Bhaba Pass Trek is a passage between two distinct Himalayan worlds. The green and lively Bhaba Valley eventually gives way to the arid and resilient Pin Valley in this wonderful trek. The trek starts from the village of Kafnu near Shimla and on the first day, we will pick you up from the Old Shimla bus stand and drive to Kafnu, your base for the Pin Bhaba Pass Trek. From Kafnu, the next day it is a trek to Mulling, en route you will get to spot the Bhaba Hydro Project, India’s first underground dam.

From Mulling its a steady ascent to Kara with waterfalls, rivers, and meadows on the way. From Kara, it’s a comparatively short trek to Pushtirang, and after crossing the Bhaba River, you will begin to see a gradual change in scenery as you head towards the Pin Bhaba Pass. From here, you can see great Himalayan Peaks like Nimish Khango, Hansbeshan Peak, Tari Khango, and Pin Bhaba Pass. From Pushtirang, we will trek to Mangrungse via the Bhaba Pass. It’s a steep ascent to the pass followed by a steep descent for some time and a gradual descent to the Mangrungse Campsite.

From Mangrungse we will head to Kaza in Spiti Valley, you can breathe in the beautiful sceneries of Spiti. The raw and resilient side of the Himalayas is a different experience altogether. After spending a day acclimatizing at Kaza (acclimatization only if needed), we will return to Manali.

What Can You Expect At The Trek

Pin Bhaba is a moderate to difficult trek with certain parts of the trek challenging your skills and endurance seriously. We usually recommend this trek for those who have had prior Himalayan trekking experience. Pin Bhaba is also one of those few treks that can be done in monsoon when the beauty of the Himalayas is all the more exquisite. If you are a  monsoon person and also have a thirst for adventure, this is the right option for you.


While the climb to the pass may be extremely strenuous but from the pinnacle point, you can see two distinct scenery on both sides of the pass, a very surreal sight to behold. Starting from Kafnu in Kinnaur Valley and Mudh in Spiti Valley, you get to witness a multitude of diverse sceneries in 8 days.

As you travel from one side of the mountain to the other you will get to see a distinct difference in lifestyle, cultures, mode of livelihood, and architectural style as well. You will get to experience how communities and cultures are a product of their surroundings.

During June, the snow starts to melt near the Bhaba Valley giving way to an ample amount of green forests, Kara is especially beautiful during that time offering panoramic views of picturesque grasslands. If you plan to do the trek post-monsoon, that is during September, the clouds will be gone and the skies will be clear, giving clear views of the surroundings.

The trek is primarily a monsoon trek and you can do it anywhere between June to September. The weather in Pin Bhaba Pass fluctuates every day. From mid-May to June, Pin Bhaba is trek friendly. It is sunny during the day and cold at night and you can expect snow in summer too. During the monsoon, from July to August, its windy and cold as it drizzles during the day and it is extremely cold at night. Post-monsoon the sky is clear, it is a little sunny during the day and at night the temperature is cold. In October there is extreme snowfall and cold. This is why the trek is closed after October.

Kafnu is a serene village, remotely situated, almost 200km away from Shimla in the southern parts of Himachal Pradesh. Although there isn’t anything else on our schedule today since it is a long drive to Kafnu, starting as early as possible is always better. The ride will be 7 hours long but the road comes with beauty and joyride of turns and twists. Kafnu is a known village of Kinnaur due to the Hydroelectric project. Kafnu is a year-round vacation spot near Shimla and as such, there is good connectivity through buses from Rampur.



On the way, you can sight India’s first underground Hydroelectric project. A stunning blue lake is formed near the dam. En route, you will catch scenic mountain views with colourful roofs appearing and disappearing, as you cross tiny mountain settlements. The Sutlej River runs in the rocky background of the mountains. The moment you get closer to the village you can find views of Bhabha valley. After you cross the Wangtoo Bridge, you can see the Kinnaur Ranges appearing in clear view. Once you reach Kafnu, you can see the slopes of the village covered in apple orchards and the beautiful Sutlej River circling in and out of the village. Kafnu is a great place to start your Pin Bhaba Pass Trek. At the end of the drive, a warm stay will be waiting for you.  Rest in your hotel for the night, because a beautiful trek is awaiting you.

Day 2 : Kafnu to Mulling

    • Stay in tents (twin sharing)

The first day of the trek begins from Kafnu. You can consider this day as a wholesome day with 8-9 hours of a hike up through the trail of ascension. It will get you all pumped up for the surprises following next. The trek will bring rarely-seen sights of dense Pine forests and gushing rivers. The challenge of todays trek is the length of the walk and also the gain in altitude. Within a span of 11 km, you will also gain an altitude of 850 m. This means it’s going to be a steady incline with some plain patches here and there.


Immediately, when you start at 200 meters you can see India’s first underground Hydel project dam. Although photography is not allowed, make sure you capture the sight in your mind. To start with the hike is a walk of almost two and a half kilometers on a service road. Enjoy the lively surroundings and be prepared for 2800 feet of height gain. Initially, you will walk on a motorable road in the vicinity of the Janglik Range with the Bhaba River flowing close by you. This motorable route will lead to a small path where the actual trekking path starts. Before this, you will cross a bridge on the Bhabha River. This bridge will take you to the left bank of the River.


You will be trudging slowly between silver birch, oak, and pine trees. It is a dense forest harbouring birds that keep you enthusiastic with their chirpy sound. You will walk under this salient flora for 5.5 km. The tall alpine trees will make the hike soothing for the eyes and unique. You can see the valley gets narrow and you will be on the left bank of the Bhabha river. Some further walks will take you to a clearing, where the terrain is strewn with mud, small stones, and grass.


The next big spot that comes after 1.4 km is the alluring camp of Champoria. The campsite is wonderful with trees around it. Cross another bridge ahead of the campsite. After crossing the walk on the right bank of the Bhabha River. The ascending trail will then start. The trail is 2 km take your steps slowly until you reach Jhandi Top(10,640 feet). You can rest on the Jhandi Top while soaking in the beauty surrounding you. You can also see your destinations Mulling from here.


After you are ready to start walking. It is only a matter of 1.5 km before you finally arrive at Mulling campsite. The campsite is extremely pleasant and the long tiredness will just vanish away. Colourful flowers decorate the campsite as the turquoise river gushes by. You can have your hot tea gazing at the beautiful sunset alongside the river on green meadows. After having an early dinner, retire to your tents. It is important to get proper rest after dinner as it is your first night in a camp at a high altitude.  Rest well and give your body time to adapt to the high-altitude condition so that you can wake up fresh for your trek the next day.

Day 3 : Mulling to Kara
    • Altitude: Kara - 3,550 m/ 11,700 ft
    • Altitude difference: 300 m/ 1,000 ft
    • Trek: 6 km | Duration: 4 to 5 hrs
    • Easy walk on rocky terrain, the last 1 km is a steep ascent
    • Camp nearby the Lake
    • Hot lunch campsite
    • Stay in tent

Today will be a little shorter day compared to yesterday but will be filled with bigger surprises. The start will be with a gradual ascent and rocky route. Today, you will have to cross some tricky sections, which are actually hidden boulders. Make your way through rocks for 1.5 km until you arrive at an amazing waterfall. Initially, you will also see a patch of the forested area where it gets darker and chillier and you have to cross the stream to get to the other side of the huge meadows forming a different yet picturesque landscape. Today you are going to face two major challenges one is crossing the gushing river by getting your feet in the icy cold water and the second is a steep ascent of 300 m which can be pretty tiring, especially with the weight on your back. The trail that takes you to the next campsite is clearly defined.



The ascent continues for another 1.7km. You will be stunned as you arrive at this point because you will hear the sounds of the gushing river but see nothing. This is a natural phenomenon called the subterranean river, where the river flows underground. Take the most of this exceptional phenomenon. Now there will be a steep ascent for another 1.5 km.


There is a small stone bridge to cross a stream. After the steep ascent, you will be welcomed by another serene meadow. The grasslands have blossomed with vibrant flowers. Feel lucky to walk between these flowers for a kilometre, unless you reach your campsite. From the meadows, you will zig-zag across the mountain through a gradual uphill climb. The last bit of the hike involves you dipping your feet in the water once more to reach across to the warm respite of your campsite.


The campsite is somewhat similar to the last days. However, there is a lake that boasts a reflection of the surroundings. You can find many Shepherds with their cattle on Kara grassland. After reaching your campsite, have a delicious hot meal. On open meadows, beside the lake and grazing animals, sleep well in your tents.

Day 4 : Kara to Pushtirang
    • Altitude: Pushtirang - 4,100 m/ 13,500 ft
    • Altitude Difference: 550 m/ 1,800 ft
    • Trek Distance: 5 km | Duration: 3 to 4 hrs
    • Moderate walks, continuous ascent
    • Enough water sources available on the way
    • The terrain is a combination of stone and loses mud
    • The first attraction is crossing the mountain stream
    • Last day with Bhaba River
    • Views: Hansbeshan Peak, Nimish Khango, Tari Khango, and Pin Bhaba Pass
    • Hot lunch at campsite
    • Stay in tent

This is the shortest day of the trek but the incline is much steeper compared to the day before. It is like a bonus day with a change in terrain and scenery. Today, we will also have multiple river crossings. Begin with the Bhabha river crossing followed by a steep ascent. Roll your pants up and step into the river, you will need to work as a team to get to the other side of the river. You will cross a collection of six streams to get to the other side. Fill the river with your eyes, as henceforth the river disappears flawlessly.


The Pushtirang Nala will be on the right as you walk on its left bank. The trail is a mix of boulders and stream crossing. Make sure you use your trekking poles efficiently and watch your step. You will require much more caution and balance on today’s trek.  There are some sections, where the rocks are prone to slipping so you need to move continuously on these sections. For 4.5 km, there will be a steep ascent followed by a gradual path leading to open land.


There are two campsites, the lower and upper ones. But we climbed a little up for 200 meters towards the upper Pushtirang campsite. If there is too much snow, we will camp at the lower Pushtirang campsite, otherwise, we will climb up to the upper Pushtirang campsite. You will be delighted to take those last few steps up. As the views from here are stupendous, more than you expected. You can see Hansbeshan Peak, Nimish Khango, Tari Khango, and Pin Bhaba Pass. Tuck in soon into your tents to get an adequate amount of rest and help your body recuperate after all the climbs.

Day 5 : Pushtirang To Mangrungse via Bhaba Pass
    • Altitude: Mangrungse - 4,150 m/ 13,600 ft; Bhaba Pass - 4,900 m/ 16,100 ft
    • Altitude difference: 800 m/ 2,600 ft
    • Trek distance: 12 km | Duration: 10 to 12 hours
    • The day is difficult and tiring
    • Continuous steep ascent till pass, after pass steep descent for 3 km and then gradual descent till campsite
    • Limited water sources nearby the pass
    • Start early in the morning
    • Pin River can be seen from the pass
    • The scenery will change, from lush green to cold dessert
    • Keep floaters, flip flops handy to cross the river
    • Packed lunch for the day
    • Stay in tent

Finally, wake up with a lot of enthusiasm and energy. The most awaited day of treading to the pass is a few hours away. Today you will notice a drastic change in the views from vegetation to the cold desert of Spiti. Today you will have to conquer steep slopes to reach the pass connecting the Pin and Bhaba Valleys.


There will be a continuous steep ascent until the pass. Begin by walking on the loose scree. There will be a cold stream crossing followed by a steep climb up towards flat ground. Most of the people set up high camps here. Walk up the steep hill until you reach the pass. You can see that the pass is the lowest point between the mountains. The pass is a confluence of Pin and Bhabha Valley, hence the name. From the top of the pass, you can see two distinct landscapes on two different sides. The geographical contradiction is the most in this part and as you keep crossing the pass, the landscape becomes arider with the mountain turning brown and cold desserts beginning to show up.



If you look back towards the Bhabha side you can see the greenery from which you rose. And if you look at the Pin Valley side, you can find dry, beige mountains. You will soon enter the Spiti.


The descent is steep and risky. Be careful and take your time to climb down. The descent is for 2 km until the slope gets gradual. Again there will be a river and stream crossing. You will arrive at Mangrungse campsite after a 5 km walk. The campsite is next to Tiya and a confluence of 3 rivers. You are now in the Pin Valley on the other side of the pass and you will notice the difference in the landscapes you saw in the previous days. The mountains are brown, red, and colourful. Spend your night in the majestic sights.

Day 6 : Mangrungse To Mudh/Kaza
    • Altitude: Mudh - 3,750 m/ 12,300 ft
    • Altitude difference (loss): 400 m/ 1,300 ft
    • Trek Distance: 17 km | Duration: 7 to 8 hrs
    • Easy walk but a long and tiring
    • Gradual descent on a mountain trail and flat walk on a road
    • Carry sufficient water from the campsite
    • Start early in the morning
    • Mudh village is famous for peas farming
    • Packed lunch for the day
    • Stay in the guest house either Mudh or Kaza

The last day of the trek is here. It is the last chance to breathe in the astonishing mountains. Also, it is the longest day with 17 km of descent. So, gather all the energy. We will start as early as possible. First, climb up to the trail then tread on this trail for 4 km. It is a gradual ascent with loose rocks and scree. You will walk up to Bara Boulder, which is a campsite here. Cross a river stream on a wooden bridge to enter on a flat path. From Bara Boulder, you will follow a gradual descent along a rock-filled, moraine section. The region here is dominated by red soil and small-sized red stones.


Enjoy the amazing trail henceforth which is laid with red soil. You will also cross Pharka village. There will be sheep flocks welcoming you. Walk for 1.5 km on this path to cross another bridge. 5 km from this bridge is the scenic Mudh village, a fantastic form of nature’s beauty.


The last section comes ahead. You will cross the Pin River over a suspension bridge. Then comes a small hike up to the Mudh village. It is the last village in Spit, about 50 km from Kaza. The village houses only about 200 people and they surely are the friendliest and fittest lot. From Mudh, you will then get into your vehicle which will take you to Kaza.


Kaza is the largest township in the entire Spiti and is also considered the commercial hub of Spiti Valley.  You will find many shopping opportunities in Kaza as well as pay a visit to the monasteries.

Day 7 : Acclimatization + Rest Day
    • Will be used when required

Acclimatization at Kaza will be used if required. The purpose of acclimatization days in our treks is to give your body time to get accustomed to the decrease in oxygen molecules at a certain altitude. Several changes occur in your body while trekking in high-altitude regions and the purpose of acclimatization is to allow your body to operate optimally in a decreased oxygen-level environment.

Day 8 : Kaza To Manali

    • Leave early in the morning
    • Breakfast and lunch on the way (not included in the cost)

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.


  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.


In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek.
