The climb is tough, but the view is great”, so is the Pin Parvati trek”. As the name indicates Pin Parvati pass is a pass connecting two valleys i.e. Pin (Spiti) valley and Parvati valley. The trek was discovered in the search of an alternative route to the Spiti valley. The pass is situated at an altitude of about 17,457fts above sea level. It’s a long trail encapsulated with adventure, beauty, and a sense of achievement. The trek makes you see the change in contrast of nature from green valleys to snow-clad mountains and the barren dusty brown grounds of Spiti valley.
With every step deeper in the Parvati valley, you will be accompanied by the enigmatic symphony of the flowing water of river Parvati which is reciting and singing her truth of existence for ages. Just like in the Kheerganga Trek Package, You will start your trip from Manali the heart of Himachal Pradesh. The path is rocky and takes a pure test of the courage you have filled yourself with. The mountain through which the trail goes is filled with a lot of adventure and breathe taking sceneries of majestic Himalayas along with river Parvati flowing down the mountains, dancing and fluttering over the rocks and giving birth to some of the most beautiful waterfalls you may ever encounter in your life.
The beauty will enthrall you, embrace you, and will appeal to you towards it. You need to set a balance between your move and your interaction with your surroundings. The nights too hold a distinct place on the trek. Chilly, cold but the stars will take the chill away and make you grasp even for a single breath... it will feel like the constellations are welcoming you and keeping a watch over you. Few falling stars and millions of others dwindling and twinkling making even the haters fall in love with the night. The technique to walk is simple harder you push yourself, the harder you’ll find to move ahead. Slowly and steadily you go, higher inertia will develop to move you forward. Weather is somewhat unpredictable on the top; you even can come face to face with the snow.
The diversion between the two valleys pin and Parvati is a bridge between the two worlds, so different and distinct from each other, making their existence to be heard in the wild, perfect to describe the horizon meeting the two grounds. As you enter the Pin valley you will be experiencing a whole new world, so alien to humankind, yet beautiful, Dusty brown mountains with not even a single bush on them. It’s a thrilling trek challenging even the seasoned trekkers but will leave you content at the end with a sense of achievement and satisfaction.

As you know every mountainous excursion demands a precise planning, a planning with adequate pliability of observing and tackling situations, held all as by overcoming mind body and soul throughout the incredible Himalayan journey.
Physically – A trek demands physical endurance, to prepare for each trek you should work out a month before joining a program. Build up the adequate strength in your legs by running and exercising every day to boost up your endurance. Stop smoking and boost your lungs doing breathing exercises at routine basis two times a day, which will help acclimatize the conditions while being resilient on the trek. Take active part in outdoor games, Yoga and any other cardiac exercises.
Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for a trek. Before joining any trek take pleasure in your daily routines, eat well, take rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions about the trek. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre trek assumptions are not worthy because once you join the trek and meet with rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trek conditions. And the physical drawbacks will affect the mind. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you trek. When you trek try to relax your body, especially your hips. If you’re on a winding downhill trail or on a panicking slant, think of each step as part of a simple dance and enjoy the natural rhythms that the terrain and your body can find together cautiously. Experiment with different ways of walking as a way of finding enjoyment beyond the goal of reaching a destination. The main key to stay mentally fit is to enjoy the route and not to pressurize the mind.
Technically- Gear up yourself with perfect size trekking shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with some weight inside it, so you become used to carrying loads. Buy a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, trousers, poncho, flip flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera).
