Located at an elevation of 12030 ft, the Chandrakhani pass straddles between Ramsu village of Kullu valley and Pulag village of Malana valley. This is how it got its name.

The Chandrakhani pass trek has many spiritual aspects associated with it. Firstly, it is a place where Saptarish Jamadagni meditates. Secondly, mythology says that there was once a local deity named Jamlu of Malana.

He had a basket of the local gods, once he was on the top of the pass, he opened the basket and incidentally a strong wind came by and blew away all the idols to the nearby peaks.Which is why all the nearby mountain peaks of Indrasan, Deo Tibba, Pir Pinjal & Parbati Range are considered holy and can be seen very clearly from the pass.

Thus the Chandrakhani pass trek introduces the trekkers to the spiritual and cultural aspect of the Himalayas, which makes it as one of the best camping places in India. Such camping trips make all the time and effort spent worth it.So, get ready for this exciting trekking experience. Following are the details of what is waiting for you.

We were quite beginners in this. The team had very much highly qualified mountaineers to guide us every time. They also had cooks and helpers to cook freshly prepared food and motivate us at all the points.

I went alone but I never felt like that in the entire trip. I made a lot of new friends in the hiking.

Always had Kasol Chandrakani pass in my bucket list. And when I reached there it was just awesome. The breath of fresh air, the calm and peace that the environment had for us is something I will never ever forget. I am a person who really enjoy trekking and have gone to different places. This is good for trek lovers.

Best place for those who want to challenge themselves in extreme landscapes.

The Kasol Chandrakani pass is pretty away from the city and it offers a best cut off from the rest of the world. It gives a very peaceful environment with a rich flora and fauna. It is so addicting there that you don’t feel like stepping down those hills.

The view of sunset and the sunrise is something that one should experience at least once in lifetime. The place has so much to offer in the form of peace, beauty and location that you can’t get over this place no matter how many times you go.

I went to this place with my family. As my mother and my father are not that young to experience extensive hiking , still Kasol Chandrakani pass hiking proved to be really a good place for people who cannot do extensive trekking.

This trek is one of the most attractive treks as it gives a mesmerizing view of Tiger Thatch range of trekkers.
