The Buran Ghati Trek (9 Days)
Trek Type: Easy to moderate
Chanshal, a little known range in Himalayas, lies above and beyond less travelled Pabbar valley of upper Shimla. Chanshal range standing as a natural barrier between tribal region of Kinnaur to its north, Garhwal Himalayas to its east and Pabbar valley to its south is dotted with high passes that have been used throughout centuries by the trans-migratory shepherds herding their flocks over to greener pastures. One such crossing is the Buran Pass (4725 mts) which separates the Pabbar from Sangla valley in Kinnaur. In the old days, English travelers during British rule often preferred this cooler route to Kinnaur to the arduous travel through the hot Sutlej valley. Used mainly by the shepherds of the area, this route provides a challenging yet extremely beautiful trek from remote village in Pabbar valley into equally charming Sangla valley. This trip provides a gainful insight into untouched, pristine beauty of Chanshal mountains, rarely seen jewels of Chandranahan Lake (4220 mts) with other glacial ponds surrounding it and culturally rich melting pot of the meeting of Buddhist and Hindu population of this region.
