Kinnaur and Spiti valley are two of the most fascinating regions of India fringing the Tibetan plateau. The general state of knowledge about these regions, occupying the northeastern quarter of Himachal Pradesh, can at best be described as scanty. Their geographical inaccessibility has resulted in their attracting the sporadic attention of only the most tenacious of travellers who love to tread on relatively less explored trails like Lamkhaga pass, Mangsu pass, Kinner-Kailash Parikrama and Nalgan pass trek.

The Three passes trek [Auden’s col – Mayali – Patangini Dhar] 2020

The pass is at 5490m altitude and connects the ridge coming from Gangotri III (6580m) peak on the north-west and the ridge coming from Jogin I (6465m) on the east, and also binds a glacier coming from Jogin I on the north side of Rudugaira valley, and deadly Khatling glacier on the south side of Bhilangna valley.

Spiti Snow Leopard Winter Trail – 2020
A century ago Rudyard Kipling in his novel “Kim” described Spiti as “a world within a world” and a “place where the god lives”. Things have hardly changed since then. In the depths of winter, this primeval & harsh land is often cut off from the rest of the world, and the elusive wild cat, descends from the high peaks & ridges into the valleys to hunt for Bharal ( Blue Sheep ), Ibex and livestock of native Spitian.
The snow leopard is generally found in Kibber wildlife Sanctuary and Pin Valley National park of Spiti valley. The snow leopard has been spotted by locals around Lippa – Asrang Sanctuary. The Kibber Snow leopard Expedition will take you to far faraway and incredibly beautiful regions of Himachal Pradesh, into the very heart of the Western Himalayas. Learn more…
