"The best view comes after the hardest climb." - This cannot be more true.
Few months ago, two of my friends and I were just looking for a small vacation break and wanted to visit the North region of India. As we were a beginner, we were looking for trips with average difficulty. Taking a chance in the unknown, we went ahead to book the Chanderkhani Pass from Thrillophilia. Since this was our first trip into the mountains, we were both, nervous and excited. On reaching there, we did few activities including rappelling and acclimatization walk. The scenic beauty from the base camp was superb as we could see the mountains covered with the snow. The excitement to reach there doubled after that. Day one ended on a good note after we were given a brief orientation about the next three days. We started for the Chanderkhani pass on Day Two. As we were marching towards the Naya Tapru camp, we saw a lot of natural scenery including green hills, snowy mountains and small waterfalls. On reaching there, we had our dinner and a born fire to end the day. Day three marked our marching towards the Chaklani Camp which was our last stop. From chaklani we marched towards the Chanderkhani Pass which was an uphill on snow. After an hour of ascend in the snow, we finally reached the peak of Chanderkhani. The view from this point was incomparable and totally worth watching. For descending, we did snow slides with the help of the guides which was a different fun all together. Taking the memories of the this few moments, we went back to the Chaklani camp. On Day four, we started to descend back to the base camp which was a journey of 4 hours. To sum it up, it was an amazing experience for us and I recommend this trek if you are a beginner. Ending the post with this,"Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer"
A friend did this trek recently and he wouldn’t stop boasting about the beauty of the place. I took this trip a couple of days ago and there is no denial of this untouched land of Himachal in the Kullu valley. Great on-ground experienced guides tied up by the team
By the time we reached the last leg of our trek which was the descend, all of us made such good friends that the entire route was disturbed by our silly jokes on each other. Our guide Sachin was somewhat our age and he talked about his life where he covers the same route in the Himalayan mountains most of the times but he never gets bored of the mountains. Chandrakhani pass trek is one such experience that I will never forget. We came across the many incomparable landscapes and I have got such good pictures in my DSLR
I had the best dinner at Nauya Tapru on the second day of our trek, after such a tiring journey if your cook makes up for the day with hot food on a chilly night, it is more of a privilege. The trek was undoubtedly tough and exhausting but having done it with Thrillophilia, there were porters, a cook and a guide who accompanied us and we hardly struggled with the weight and there is no comparison to the food you get at these camps, freshly cooked mountain veggies and ‘Bhaat.’ Chandrakhani pass trek is one of my favorites in the Himalayas.
Once in a while, such treks are needed which can break your body but boost your faith in yourself. This pass enables a chance to witness the Pir Panjal range, Deo Tibba peak and Parbati range in one line. This three-day trek starts from Rumsu and ends at Rumsu. After difficult trek uphill, it felt as if we attained Nirvana looking at the magical sight of snow-clad mountains. Great experience with team Thrillophilia while booking online. Harish from the team guided very well from beginning till booking! Thanks.
After I recovered from my clavicle dislocation, I wanted to feel the mountains and this trek was all I needed, on the entire trek my bag was managed by a porter so my trek was stress-free. Thank you Thrillophilia for making it easy and accommodating so nicely..
The food was good but was little spicy for me so I could not gulp enough to fill my stomach, seeing this my fellow trekkers asked about the problem and then almost everyone got something to eat out of their bags. Such sweet gestures. Loved this trek.
I booked this trek online from this website and it was quite a smooth process. Nice meals provided and great facilities overall.
No matter how good or bad the arrangements were, once you get a mattress or a bed you fall asleep in seconds because of the tiredness and exhaustion. I loved waking up early in the morning and walking in the quiet environment.
The tents were basic, you should take a fleece blanket with you because the temperature can be freezing at night, insects and mosquitoes were some problems. Suggest a repellent.
