The Himalayas are the most magnanimous and awe striking creations of the earth. As trekkers, we have had a chance to climb these tall standing beauties and be witnesses to this bounty of nature. Although most of the parts of the Himalayas have unparalleled beauty, some of the trails are so mesmerizing that they leave you speechless.

If you ask a trekker to list the most beautiful and magnificent Himalayan treks, one name you will surely find on the list will be of the Rupin Pass Trek.

Last year I did Rupin Pass Trek with Bikat Adventures. Their small batch size and good trek leaders make the entire experience better. We learned to pitch our tents and had the most amazing time celebrating the beauty of our surroundings. I made so many new friends for life on the trail.

Here you can check Rupin Pass trek details.

The Rupin Pass Trek is one of those treks which gives you a chance to walk from one state to another, can you imagine that? You start walking from a quaint little village called Dhaula in Uttarakhand and land in Sangla village of Himachal Pradesh.

These two Himalayan states are already praised and known for their charming views and their popular tourist spots. So you can see the bigger picture here.

Walking on the trail between these two states is sure a treat for any trekker.

The Rupin Pass trek is an 8-day trek and the distance covered in these days is approximately 52 km. As you start from Dhaula village, you witness the most marvelous views of the Himalayas, surrounded by the lush green trees and grass.

The campsites of the Rupin Pass trek are to die for. As you progress during the trek, you camp at several beautiful locations such as Saruwas Thatch, Dhanderas Thatch, Ronti Gad and Upper Waterfall campsite. Trust me, the beauty of these campsites will blow your mind away.

As you move ahead from the Upper waterfall campsite, you will see the tree line disappearing and jagged mountains welcoming you into a very different landscape. The sudden transformation from the green meadows to the barren lands is also quite an experience for the trekkers.

As you traverse from the Ronti Gas campsite, you reach the saddle shape Rupin Pass. This pass gives you a 360-degree view of the Himalayas. Look as far as your eyes can see, the only thing that will match your eyes will be tall Himalayan peaks touching the sky and piercing the clouds above them.

During this trek, there will not be a single day when the beauty of your surroundings will not leave you wondering. The mountains put on a show of perfection, just for you.

Another major highlight of the Rupin Pass trek which deserves a special mention is the three-tier waterfall that you will be able to see right in front of you. The gushing waters of the waterfall produce a sound which soothes your ears and the views of this waterfall are like a treatment for the eyes.

After spending days on the trail, the final reward of having fresh snow beneath your feet makes you jump in excitement. You will be surrounded by a thick sheet of white sparkling snow all around you. The trek is a complete experience and you get to visit all kinds of Himalayan landscapes and a waterfall like never before.

On the trail of this trek, you will also get a chance to see the best flora and fauna of the Himalayas. From purple Rhododendron to the blissfully green and full of life meadows - you will be sitting in natures lap.

This stunning crossover trek is one of the best out of the few crossover treks in the Himalayas.

Just as you cross the pass, you may think that the return journey will be tedious and boring, as they always are. But the Rupin Pass trek has yet another surprise saved for you. The trail offers you stunning views of the Kinnaur Kailash ranges and the relief of being in the green meadows again is quite a refreshing.

I am sure you are convinced about the grandeur of this great trek. Here are some vital stats to help you plan the trek for the upcoming season.

The beauty of the Rupin Pass trek is unmatched and many trekkers have the trek on their bucket list.

You should plan to do the trek in the months of May to June and September to October to enjoy the best of this trek, as the flora and fauna of the trek is blossoming during this season.
