One of the hardest and most challenging treks in Himachal Pradesh is the Pin Parvati Pass in Kasauli. If you are looking for an adventurous and challenging journey, this is the place for you. It’s interesting to note that you’ll get to see the Great Himalayan National Park, Kheerganga, Mantlaai and Pin Parvati Pass’ dense jungles through the 110 km long track. The track is woven with dense jungles and green valleys.

This trek is all the more adventurous during monsoons. This 11-day long trek is best enjoyed during the months of July to September.

Do remember to enjoy the hot springs in Kheerganga’s Parvati Kund. If you are someone who doesn’t mind adventurous treks, this is the trek for you.

When we talk about the Stoke Kangdi trek, the one name that should come to mind is the Hemis National Park. Situated in Ladakh, this park stands 20,190 feet tall. It’s the tallest mountain in the Stok Range of the Himalayas, from where you can see the beautiful sight of Zanskar and Sindhu Ghati.

It’s important to know that this 8-day trek’s most difficult aspect is not its height, but the lack of oxygen which might cause extreme fatigue and headache. The best time to take this trek is between the months of June and September.
