Tour Details

There is a saying in the mountains which goes like ‘the valley is inviting you’. And yes indeed if you have heard the Indian Classical Music album by Shiv-Hari ‘The call of the valley’ our adventure here will invoke that spirit of joy and a prevailing sense of happiness thereafter.

Chanshal Peak 4520mts is the highest peak in Shimla district, sitting atop the Chanshal pass 3750mts, open only during the summer months from May till October and is the gateway to forlorn villages of Dodra and Kwar. The beautiful vistas all around and Rolling Meadows interspersed with apple orchards and glacial streams make this region pristine and pure. Before we reach Chanshal, we shall ride to Khara Pathar, where we explore Giri Ganga, from where the river starts and hike through a dense forest of oak and cedar and ultimately climb up the Kuppar peak 3352m, from where the Giri Ganga originates and then disappears to appear at Giri Ganga temple below.

The top affords expansive views of the valleys below and the mountainscape above. Thereafter we ride to the town of Rohru, on the banks of the river Pabbar and continue further towards Chirgaon, famous for its trout fish and then Tikri and Larot the last settlement 18kms before Chanshal pass. We experience a night under the star trails as we camp on the glades at Chanshal pass and enjoy to the music of the winds.
