Pin Parvati trek Overview

The Pin Parvati Pass (also known as Pin Parvati Pass) is a mountain pass in Himachal Pradesh, India, at 5,319 meters. Pin Parvati Pass trek provides the most spectacular traverses, right from the forest and verdant meadows of the Parvati Valley to the Buddhist villages in the Trans-Himalayan region of Spiti. The sharp contrast in landscapes, culture, flora and fauna will catch you off-guard. Within hours, you’ll walk from the cold dry mountain desert region of Spiti to the rich biodiversity in Parvati Valley, Which is spectacular. As you climb high in Pin Parvati Pass The bird's eye view will blow your mind. Pin Parvati Trek offers you a lifetime experience from the pulley bridge at Tunda Bhuj to marshlands of Mantalai to alpine meadows of Odi Thach, dense forests near Kheerganga and glaciers near the Pass. You can call it the perfect mixture of Hill, Desert and Jungle.

Usually, an individual will need to travel a distance of 10km per day with a total distance of around 1100km to cover during the entire trek. In general, most of the trekking point base camps are from Kullu and Manali. As those places are easy to reach and are well connected to all the other parts of the country.

Best Time to Visit:

Monsoon (June to September)
These months are not the quintessential rainy months in the area but a time when the snow melts and the weather is favourable for the trek and also easier makes it the best time to visit the Parvati Pin Pass is in between June to September. A question may arise about heavy rains seen in Kullu and Manali during the suggested time frame. Even though it may rain in Kullu and Manali but on higher altitudes, it is always a bit warm and sunny and even a minimal amount of snowfall is seen, which furthermore enhances the trekking experience for the entire trekking party. The Pin Parvati Trek in Himachal Pradesh should be taken at this time.

Summers (January to May)
The temperature is favourable from January to May. But the snowfall rate is high, which makes trekking difficult. The temperature in these months, however, is recorded as 12°C- 20°C in the daytime and during the night it is recorded from -6°C to 4°C. So the day time is good to do this activity.

Winters (October- December)
An extremely unfavourable time to visit the place, these months see extreme temperatures and snowfall make it impossible to do the trek. The temperature dips to below 0 degrees and there will be snow every now and then, making it tough to navigate through the pass.

Pin Parvati trek Reviews




We roamed around Kasol to choose the best option for our trek and when we met their team, a sudden trust was built. They without any doubt are the most professional and amazing team. Our Pin Parvati trek was a fantastic experience and it would have not been possible without them. Thanks to the team of Bananjara.




Me and my friends choose Pin Parvati trek for our day hike and it was really our kind of place offbeat type. This was our first trek experience and we surely made the right choice by choosing HimalayanYeti. It was a great experience. From HimalayanYeti local suggested us this place. He was very knowledgeable and always shared useful information with us.

शंम्मी विकरस


Done in Aug . Very thrilling, adventurous, and not a beginner trek continuously 8 -9 days trek of daily 10km, If planning to go, go before monsoon. Monsoon makes the terrain slippery and Parvati River becomes wild, with lots of boulders. Continuously 7 days we hike, then later on long long terrain of Mud Valley.

As they say, you’ll never know your limits unless you push yourself to them. In August we thought of pushing ourselves for 110+ kilometers cross-over trek from lush green Parvati valley to cold arid Spiti valley in the Himalayas




Nice experience.......!!!!!!!!!!!! With 17, 500 Feet to be gained above mean sea level, roaring Parvati and Pin rivers to be crossed innumerable times, some precarious vertical rocky wall sections to be negotiated, and acutely narrow trails to be traversed in 9 days, PIN PARVATI PASS appeared to be a perfect dose of the challenge we were craving for! And we loved every bit of it. You can check out my blog (link in my profile) for more details.




The park is located in the desert habitat of the Spiti Valley, within the Cold Desert Biosphere Reserve, in the Himalayas region. This cold desert is situated from the height of 11000 feet to 20000 feet and is known for medicinal plants available only in this area. The landscape view is very beautiful and unique.




Pin Valley National Park is a simple heaven. If you go in winter then you might see winter animals. When we had gone there we didn't see any animals. Good for driving. Mud village is the last village of Pin Valley National Park.




Pin Valley is situated in the Lahul & Spiti district of H.P. It is one of the hidden gems of Spiti Valley. On day third i.e. 20th June 2018 early morning after having breakfast we traveled from Kaza to Pin Valley. Our cab driver Varinder Pal Singh took the road toward Dhankar.

Pin Parvati trek FAQs

What is the best time for Pin Parvati Trek?

The best time to go for the Pin Parvati Pass trek is during the summer months of July to September. This is the time when the paths here are clean and one can easily cross almost any kind of blockage. 

Is Pin Parvati trek safe to do?

Pin Parvati trek is extremely safe to conduct under the guidance of trained trekking professionals. It is not advisable to undertake the journey if you are trekking for the first time or are new to hiking through the Himalayas.

Another thing to keep in mind is that if you are traveling to Spiti valley on your own vehicle, it is advisable to take the Manali Leh Highway, instead of the Kinnaur route. The Zoji La pass is extremely treacherous to cross, especially in winter. It is better to take a bus if you want to take this Highway.
