Sar Pass Trek takes you through the ageless Himalayan terrains offering sensational views of green meadows, gushing waterfalls, rich forests, and gigantic mountains. This trek is suited to beginners, amateur trekking enthusiasts, and avid travelers enchanted by the glory of the high-altitude trails. It is a must-try for those who enjoy waking to the rising sun, camping under the star-lit sky, and stepping on the carpet of glittering snow and a crystal clear frozen lake reflecting the vastness of the sky. The trek also culminates in the grandeur of the Parvati valley that harbors a beautiful Grahan village - nicknamed the ‘mini Israel of India.’ If you long for a thrilling and moderate trek traversing the rare Himalayan natural wonders like flora, mountain fruits and bird species, this will check off of your bucket list.
The hike starts from the Kasol base camp (1580 m) in the snow-clad region, and the total Sar Pass Trek distance is 48 km that ends in the small village of Bursheni. One requires five days to finish this trek that has an easy to moderate difficulty level. The entire journey fills you with exuberance making way through the dense pine forests, exotic flowers, and pristine white scenery. One must be physically and mentally fit to embark on this trek. Regular exercises and cardio workouts build a strong immunity system. As a warm-up before the expedition, you must habitually complete a 4 km stretch jogging under 30 minutes to control breathing and fatigue. In addition to this, you must be resistant to changing weather and take sufficient time to acclimatize to the high-altitude conditions. The best time to visit Sar Pass Trek is between April and June: a perfect season of warm weather and a snowy backdrop to enliven your experience. The unpredictable weather conditions in the rainy and winter season make it less desirable for trekkers. The Sar Pass trek cost might vary with the package and its inclusions. However, the typical cost hovers between USD 65 - 120 (INR 5000 - 9000). You must have all the necessary travel essentials to tackle ad hoc emergencies. Since it is a high-altitude trek, a good pair of hiking shoes is a must-carry. Always keep an extra pair of socks, shoes, warm clothes, and thermals for this trek. In addition to that, make room for a raincoat, water bottle, caps, goggles, head torch, and insect repellents. You must carry the backpack (50-60 lt) and keep the luggage minimum to avoid the hassle. You will not find an electricity source from Kasol, so carry spare batteries. In the list of toiletries, you must include hand sanitizers, moisturizers, sunscreens, toothbrushes, toothpaste, sanitary napkins/ tampons for women, and plastic covers to dump the waste, wet wipes, lip balm, and cotton buds. Never neglect the power of woolen gloves and an extra pair of towels and underwear. Carry ample amounts of dry fruits, energy bars, and snacks. Keep the personal government ID proofs in handy for emergencies. The last part is the most important. You must have a first aid kit, a stack of tablets for fever, vomit, cold and other symptoms of AMS, extra pairs of masks, biodegradable soaps, and antibacterial creams. Ensure you are aligned with the restrictions in the region and commit to using eco-friendly products.
