About this activity

Chandrakhani Pass Trek offers a view of some of the biggest Himalayan dwellings that follow your adventures. Witness the splendor of the Pir Panjal ranges falling in the north, the Parvati rising high in the east, and the Bara Bangal range in the west. With vibrant meadows spreading out against the backdrop of majestic peaks, it embraces you.

In addition to providing stunning views of the Pir Panjal and Parvati mountain ranges, the pass also allows you to glimpse the Deo Tibba and Indrasan peaks. You pass through broad meadows, streams, and waterfalls as you descend from the past.

The "Valley of Gods" is another name for the region around Chandrakhani Trek. According to a tale, the
deity Jamlu was carrying a basket full of gods when he approached the place, and as soon as he did, a violent gust of wind blew all the gods out of the basket. Each one descended to the earth and assumed the shape of peaks, leading to their renaming as Indrasan, Pir Panjal, Deo Tibba, and Parbati. The pass offers a stunning view of these summits. With such legends and breathtaking peaks as a backdrop, a wonderful trek is sure to keep you thrilled.
