RUPIN PASS TREK

The Rupin Pass trek is like an edge-of-the-seat Hollywood thriller. So sudden are the changes in scenery that it makes you always walk a little further just to see if there is another surprise round the corner. What's intriguing is why many hikers don't do this trail. Yet, it is one of the best treks you will ever do in your life.

Picture this: A turn here and a towering waterfall, a turn there a meadow full of yellow marigolds, another turn: a fir forest. Look down and a snow bridge to cross, look up -- a hanging village, scan the horizon and hundreds of water falls cascading down a glacial valley, look across and an icy blue river gently floating by. Squish your toes and rivulets dance, twirl and gurgle underfoot.

Eerie trails dug out of rock faces, trails that look down a precipice, trails over swaying wooden bridges, trails through deep dark folds in the mountain, trails that cut through millions of white Rhododendrons, trails over lush expanse of green meadows, trails on glaciers and icy slopes, trails over vast snow fields, trails through an echoing gully - it just doesn't stop. The Rupin Pass trek has got it all. Your trek starts at Dhaula, a sleepy hamlet of a dozen homes and the last road head of Uttarakhand. Dhaula overlooks the Rupin curving down a stony gorge in the river - the sound deafening. In the evening step down to the cable drawn sway bridge and catch a wall of mist hanging over the gushing Rupin. The stillness of the mist in contrast to the rush of the river right under is the start of the many surprises in store.
