Buran Ghati - The trek that has it all! The thicker and denser forests of oak and pines, the extensive green meadows, the sharp edges at high altitudes, the snow-clad peaks all around, the small streams and brooks and the quaint villages are some of the magnificent sights you will come across the entire trek.

Buran Ghati trek starts from Janglik which is approx. 150 km from Shimla. It takes X days to trek to Buran Ghati which is at an altitude of 15059 ft. The panoramic view from Buran Ghati is astonishing and breathtaking but the most exciting and nerve-wracking bit is the 400 meter ice wall decent from the pass to the valley below. Yes, you will be rappelling down from the pass followed by six long snow slides which will surely bring out the child in you.

Saturday, 14th Sept
Shimla to Janglik (9200 ft) Drive- 150km
We plan to start from Shimla as early as 6 am today. The drive from Shimla to Janglik is beautiful. With the river Pabbar giving us company a good part of the way. The road passes through mixed forests and we cross several villages along the way. Notice the beautiful Himachali homes and fields of wheat adorn the sides of the road. From Chirgaon, the road condition becomes bad. Get ready for a bumpy ride. The road crosses the Pabbar river at Tonglu and then climbs to Janglik.

After reaching our destination, hot dinner will be served . Please note, the last ATM is at Rohru. Rohru is also the last place we will find the network on our phone.

Sunday, 15th Sept
Janglik to Dayara (11000 ft)
It's the first day of our trek today.
We initially pass local houses and cross small fields for around 30 minutes before the trail takes us into a forest. The trail through the forest is pretty pleasant and you can enjoy the view that it offers. We come across several clearings throughout the trail till we arrive our final destination of the day, Dayara.
Dayara is a beautiful campsite with lush green meadows. As the day was easy, we will spend the evening indulging in some fun activities at the campsite. Hot tea and snacks will be served too followed by some delicious dinner in the night

Monday, 16th Sept
Dayara to Litham (11,800 ft)
Wake up early to witness the golden sun rays falling on the green meadows . After a hot cup of tea and breakfast we will start todays trek over the high and low land meadows through narrow mud trails.

The trail which follows from Dayara to Litham takes us through dense forest, green meadows and gushing streams. Throughout the trail, there are streams where we can refill our water bottles. Before reaching the Dayara campsite we willl be able to see the snow-capped mountains of the Dhauladhars. we will come across the forest of Bhoj which has a beautiful setting. From here we will be able to spot a clear view of Litham. After crossing the Chandranahan stream we will reach the Litham campsite. Weou will camp here for the night.

Litham has gorgeous views on three sides. On our left is is the snout of the Chandranahan waterfall, beyond which is the Chandranahan lake. In front are the towering snow clad mountains that are hiding Buran Ghati . On the right are the snow patched cliffs that hide the Rupin valley.

Tuesday, 17th Sept
Litham to Chandranahan Lake (13,900 ft) & back to Litham
The Chandranahan is a glacial lake surrounded by snow covered peaks. It is a small lake, However getting to it is an exciting experience and extremely fulfilling. We cross the stream before the Litham campsite and continue upstream on the trail to the top of the ridge. Then we walk towards the snout of the waterfall.
The lake is considered sacred by many locals and has many interesting tales attached to it. After spending some time at lake and clicking pictures we head back to our campsite. Spend the evening relaxing and witnessing sun setting behind the majistic snow covered peaks.

Wednesday, 18th Sept
Litham to Dunda ( 13500 ft )
Today we start the trek following the Pabbar naala to our right and reach a small lake to our right. Walk for about 10 mins straight to see another lake bigger in size that is a beauty in itself. Keep trekking for about 90 mins and take the climb to our left. This is a steep climb of about 1.7 kms and will take approx 45 to 60 mins to climb. The top spot is a small patch of land that could be covered in snow as well. After crossing the patch we reach Dudna , which is base for The Buran Pass.

Thursday, 19th Sept
Dunda to River Camp (11,900 ft) via Buran Ghati (15,050 ft)
Today we'll be trekking for almost 10-11 hours which will be both ascending and descending. In September, the snow melts and it is not difficult to climb the pass. Out of the Dhunda campsite follow the ridge and hop over boulders towards the base of the pass. From the base, it is an hour long climb to the top, mostly on snow. Buran Ghati at exactly 15,000 ft is a thrilling climb. It is a narrow ledge on the top. The drop on the other side is sharp and steep. Without the rope, the descent can be risky even with an ice axe. Getting down to the first snowfield about 100 metres below the pass is your first objective. Thereafter it is a series of descents over smaller ledges that you can slide down!
!Decent is fast & we lose altitude quickly. We will set camp next to the river and cross it a little further down the valley.

Friday, 20th Sept
River Camp to Kharcham/Barua (6,561 ft). Onward to Shimla
Riverside camp to Barua is through gradual descend on a thin mud led trail passing through a stream.The trail is well marked from river campsite. Take the lower trail descending into the valley. The trail passes through grasslands & forest of pine trees. Arrive at Barua by the afternoon and board your vehicles for the return journey. The vehicles will drop you in Shimla.
