The trek was well planned and executed. I learned a lot of things about outdoors which i had not in my previous ventures in Himalayas. I specially liked the idea of learning based approach followed by Himalayan hikers where focus is to impart knowledge to the participants. If i want of objectify, i have learned how to pitch my own camp, How to keep myself fit during the trek, The importance of height gain and some basic rope knots. I have also come to know the importance of getting a mountaineering certification."
Rupin Pass trek is one of the best in Northern India, starts from Uttrakhand and ends in Sangla, Himachal pradesh. You need to walk almost 80 Km's in majestic Himalayas in 7 days. You encounter majestic mountains, peaceful villages, rivers, waterfalls, glaciers and a walk to remember. We had an amazing time at Rupin and we expect better next time travelling with more like minded people.

Trekking in Himalayas had been on my bucket list for quite some time. After some research, we booked ‘Rupin Pass’ trek with Himalayan hikers group for the 18th June batch. 2017 It is an 8-day trek starting from Dehradun and ending at Shimla. In between, we need to trek/hike for around 70-80 Km (including the everyday acclimatization walks) through narrow trails with mighty Himalayas on one side and meandering Rupin river on the other to reach the summit at 15, 250 feet. Thanks you HH
Housands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity...
90k footsteps, 200+ narrow snow trails, a hanging village, snow-bridges, woods, following a river from plain to its source glacier, climb besides couple of big waterfalls, 10+ sq-km vast snow desert, Multiple almost vertical climbs.. finally leads to 15650 feet - Rupin Pass..
Last but not d least.. Thanks a lot to Team HPMA for organizing it so well and for the tremendous support.. Kuldeep Chainsingh Rawat... Harkidun Protection & Mountaineering Association
