Sore footed, wide eyed and sun dizzy, we became a part of the stark, desolate and barren landscape, as the days and nights merged into one long moment. It was an autumn full of wonderful encounters both physical and spiritual as we trekked the remote Himalayas we love. At times, as in life, there were highs and lows; but we loved it. From the walk into Mudh village at the end of the trek to the lush green forests of the Kulu valley. Emerging from the moonscape at Kaaza at the end of our trek to cold beer and tandoori in Manali. We toasted ourselves and studied our weather beaten faces in the bathroom mirrors; did we really just walk across the Himalaya?

I hope the trip report and pictures will be of some use, to someone who is planning to do Pin Parvati.

Ofocurse possible in October.
We did the trek in end week october. the weather was crystal clear through out. It was a bit cold though.
Guess begining of october or mid october would be perfect.

As far as the porters or guides r concerned, i have absolutely no idea, coz we dint take any.

The trip report is a great read! Awesome job.
So you guys went for this trek in Oct or August? I was confused because the report suggests august and your reply says oct. Do you think mid-august would be a good time for this trek?
