Yes, we did the trek almost without guides.
It took 3 days and 2 nights to get to pass. one night we stayed just after the pass near the cave (forgot the name of it)
Kullu side of Chanderhani was full of snow so we have mistaken and climbed neighbor saddle. The weather was not shanti - strong wind, little bit raining, gray clouds covered the sky.
After we have understood that the point we have climbed was not the pass i called to guy who cooked in tea staul just near the pass asking him to come and show us the way to pass.
After two hours of climbing (it was really tricky) on snow'n'rock slope we've reached Chanderhani. On next day we've went down using "horse way" which is a bit longer but as i said has no dangerous points.
After Malan some of our company had no power to go further to Rashol pass so we got to Kasol by jeep through Jari.

Congrats! - this is year because of higher amount of snow, even easier treks have become tougher. My friend just returned from Beas Kund - had gone with his kids - lot of snow there as well.

thank you!
and is Beas Kund covered with snow or it's uncovered? some people here in Manali say that it's still covered...

Hi Kri69,

Your questions and the maps and the information offered by others have significantly helped me in planning my Chandrakhani Trek this August. I had a few more questions I was hoping you might be able to answer for me.

Me and a friend will be doing the Naggar - Rumsu - Chandrakhani Pass - Malana - Rasol - Kasol route. I have done a couple of easy/moderate treks but my friend will be doing it for the first time. Do you reckon this route can be done without any porters / guides?

Are there shops / stalls along the way where we can replenish our food and water supplies? We'll be carrying our own tents.

Thanks!

defentely! the route is ok and there is no problem to track it.
the only crossroads is on Malana side just after the pass. you should ask locals about it and decide which way to go (shortcut or a bit longer way)

I've got acquainted with a guy from Rumsu who works in the tea dhaba just before the pass - Tinku. He helped us to find the right point of the pass after our mistake. His tel. number is 98163 95256. He is really ok!

at least 2 stalls you can find on the way from Rumsu to pass. one of them is right before the pass.
but still it's better to have some energy snacks, nuts etc.

water supplies
you can find fresh water springs all along the way

Malana - Rasol - Kasol
wasn't done. couse the group (we had 4 girls) was a bit exhausted. but locals say that these route is also well marked and it take about 4-5 hours (for locals) to get from Malana to Rashol

hope it will help

PS
as you can see, first we climbed wrong slope. looking at photo it's hard to say that the way to pass wasn't easy. however it was. we had to sweat to climb on snow, muddy rocks...

Hello there!

I have a crazy idea of making documentary about some remote trek in Himachal. Now i thinking about Pin Parbati trek.
Would like to know if there any other crazy people with production experience are here?
Last 4 years i work in Belarus in production sphere, managing and producing wide range of projects: feature film, tv-series, advertising. Also I'm fond of filming and working with camera.

This is just an idea that is more close to dream yet than to reality.

However I eager to hear any response!

There are some less known treks in Kinnaur & Spiti. I can help if you are interested.

That's right. However Pin Parbati trek has it's drama: it begins in greenish area around Kullu-Kasol-Manikaran-Kiriganga (it has its own huge cultural background) and ends in rainless and deserted area of Mud with totally another cultural background. In other words Pin Parbati trek is the way from one world to another. That's the drama that makes this particular trek special!

Perhaps there is another trek with similar case.
