Located in the relatively untouched Dhauladhar range of Himachal Pradesh, the Kalihani Pass at 4850 M (15,912 FT) is a one-of-a-kind trail that combines absolute beauty with the ultimate thrill. The Kalihani Pass is a part of the famous Bara Bhangal trail connecting the two valleys of Kullu and Kangra. With its close relation to the bustling town of Manali, the Kalihani Pass trek presents trekkers with breathtaking campsites, dense meadows which are unlike anything you have seen, stunning visuals of the surrounding landscape that are simply scintillating, an adventure-packed pass climb that takes you through a steep trail full of scree, moraine and glistening white snow all the way to 4800 M with unparalleled views of Mt. Deo Tibba, Mt. Indrasan and other peaks of the Pir Panjal range. There are two other spectacular milestones of this trek, namely the 4000 M majestic Khanpara Tibba that gives you a closer view of the Dhauladhar range and the sacred elliptical Rani Sui Lake. The highlight of the trek is the stunning display of a wide array of gorgeous flowers, more than 10 varieties on the trail. Meant for experienced trekkers, expect the unexpected in this pristine and offbeat trek taking you away from the conventional paths of Himachal Pradesh. July to October are the best months to do this trek.
