Rupin Pass Trek

There are altogether twelve stunts for you. It's not a stunt that you often see from the bikers. When Mother Nature shows her beauty, all the top beauties of universe just stare at her – speechless and tranquilized in absolute solace. The first stare will be at Rupin. The beauty will be falling just beside you to the white bed. Awesome looks will remind you of the panoramic beauty of the dancers of heaven. Get to the temple of Sewa. It is the surprise number two for you. You will find the Kinnaur temple, similar in appearance to a watch tower. Menders on the bed of River Rupin will surprise you for the third time. It is the border of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

In the next turn, there is a man-made surprise for you. You will find Jhaka, a hanging village from the mountain. Pine trees with 100 feet heights will be the next surprise, followed by Udukanal, the sixth one. The next turn is a pleasant surprise to see the Rupin waterfall, dropping directly from the clouds. Then is the turn to see some snow works. The snow bridges over the ridges will take your attention, now here and then there. The next view is a net, a network of hundred rivers getting to Rupin to fill it with water. The final view is the Kinner Kailash. It is really an amazing one. Start your trek with homage for Pokhu Devta. Get to the woods after that. You will ascend slowly and the meadows will show you their art gallery before you. After certain time, you will feel that you were a relative of them for a long time. That is the reason; they are showing so much faith on you to show their family albums.

Local stories will not end in the alley region. You will find endless mythological scripts here, some of which are epical too. You will just enjoy those words in the lovely trip.
