Bhaba Pass trail is a magnificent trekking route that passes through lush green Pine forest, torrents of mountain streams and snow clad mountain pass.
Himachal Pradesh is a state in northern India which has a very unique landscape ranging from dark dense forest to barren, arid mountains. This part of landscape mesmerizes you with the beauty of Himalayan desert alongside the lustrous green cover and numerous gushing mountain streams. Bhaba is one of those rare passes in Himalaya which offers you the glimpse of, most probably all you can ask for in a trek. We start the trek at rocky Spiti side and complete in the green Kinnaur letting you savour the all different landscape this region has to offer.
During the trek, we stay in tent, either twin or triple sharing basis.
Himalayan weather is sometimes unpredictable. During this time of the year, the weather is expected to be sunny with occasional passing rain in the Kinnaur side. However, Spiti side of the pass is expected to be dry. In general, the days are sunny or windy. Temperature will drop sharply in night. Minimum temperature expected around 5 degree centigrade.
