    Bhabha Pass Trek was a really nice experience. However, what seemed to be a moderate level trek felt a little complicated. Thanks to the climate changes. The trek itinerary was scheduled nicely for 8 days starting from Manali back to Manali. It started on a great note. However, there was some unexpected rains plus a lot of hassles due to the rain. This also messed up the tent stay a big time. That being said, this trek was nevertheless nice and good experience overall to cherish.

    Conquering the 4850m peak was like a dream come true for me. Comapred to my other treks; Pin Parvati, Hemkund and Roopkund, I would rank this one as the best. I was luck enough to join the trek at the last moment and once it started, it took me high! Those who haven't experienced the Pin Parvati, can enjoy magical views of the peak while in this trek. Pretty much difficult...so better be prepared for any kind of obstacle.

    After we gave a thumbs up to the Bhaba Pass trek in Himachal Pradesh, we all were like what to and what not to do! Its difficulty gradient were a bit challenging for us. But, 'where there is a will, there is a way' got proved and we finally completed the trek so nicely. A huge amount of the entire credit goes to the experienced crew of guides. Their encouragement and support made it possible for us.

    There is always something new that you can discover in Himachal. This trek is also one such expedition, where we really discovered some of the most beautiful and kaleidoscopic sights. Within the trek, we reached around 4850 m and by the time we did it, almost everyone in our group wished that the trek shouldn't get over.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What is the best time to go?

      The Bhaba Pass can be trekked anytime between May and October but, the ideal time is after the end of monsoon season that lasts from June till August. Though May does not face monsoon showers but, you can find snow along the route making the path slippery and tough to climb.

    2. What is the level of fitness expected from the participants?

      The fitter you are the more you'll take away from the experience. Take as much time as you can for cardio exercise and strength training, including core strength. This will make it far easier for you to trek and explore the terrain with your guide. Moreover, exercises aid in acclimatization for the trip. Experience of walking for long distances with heavy weights (at least 15 Kg) will be a useful preparation.

    3. What kind of food will be provided during this trek? What about safe drinking water?

      All meals will be provided on this trek.You will be served Indian vegetarian food during this trek. Himalayan water is considered a clean and mineral water but to be on the safe side you will get boiled water with chlorine tablets.

    4. What are the clothing and equipments that need to be carried from our end?

      Make sure to carry warm and comfortable clothing as temperature can drop, pack good quality trekking shoes, slippers and extra pair of socks. It’s advisable to carry sunscreen lotion or any other skin moisturisers as the sun at the top can be harsh. Water bottles and energy bars/snacks are advisable. A Flashlight (with spare batteries) will help once the sun goes down and it’s always smart to carry insect repellent and emergency medical kit.

    5. Which type of shoes should I buy?

      Good quality and sturdy trekking shoes that cover your ankles. Refrain from using sport shoes for your own safety and the trails are uneven and tricky hence requiring good grip trekking shoes. If you are buying new shoes for your trek, please remember to use them for at least a month before you commence your holiday.

    6. Can I have liquor or smoke while we're on the trek?

      No, these practices are strictly prohibited.
