About the event

Day 1: Kasol The travellers can board bus from Kashmiri Gate (Delhi) to Kasol.

The route from Delhi to Kasol is approximately 500 kms of an overnight journey. This first day will let you adjust to the temperature and will help your body acclimatize before the trek starts. 

Day 2: Kasol to Grahan Village - 5 hours trek (10 KM)

The trail commences from the centre of Kasol towards the first campsite- Grahan village. The pathway you cross in between goes through the forests, followed by meadows and Garahan nalah. Once you cross the green fields of Grahan Nalah, the trail becomes abruptly steep and rocky as the ascent gets steeper. After a while, the rocky pathways open up to scenic fields full of colourful tarpaulins. After a steep and rocky one hour climb, you will see a small cluster of houses situated on the top of a hill. This is the village of Grahan, your camp base for the first night. Some of the mobile networks do have signal till this point. Overnight stay in tent. 

Day 3: Grahan Village to Min Thach - 4 hours trek (7 KM) 

After breakfast, Start climbing up gently towards the north early in the morning. After walking for about half an hour, this trail opens up to a grazing land. The trail gradually leads into the woods and the way becomes steeper and vertical. Once you have crossed this range, a thick canopy of trees will take over you and the sunlight will almost diminish as you will enter the dense forest. After slogging for 2-3 hours in the forest, the canopy opens up to a grassy area on a ridge. As you stand here and take a panoramic view, you will witness the stretch of Chanderkhani and various other ranges towards your North West direction across the horizon. Walk towards the ridgeline and continue towards the east, you will be able to spot a snow-covered cliff where resides your next campsite- Nagaru. Overnight stay in tent. 

Day 4: Min Thach to Nagaru - 6 hours trek (8 KM)

Today, after early breakfast, be prepared to have an early start from Min Thatch towards Nagaru. The route till Nagaru commences with a downhill trail first and then goes upwards towards the cliff and into the woods. As the chances of the snowfall or hailstorms are very high at this altitude of 3400m. As you keep walking in during the dawn, you will proceed towards another rocky ridgeline which ultimately opens up to a lush grassy meadow after a while. The initial stretch of the ridge is very steep. The trekkers need to be very careful while crossing this patch as the melted slow makes the track very slippery. One should have appropriate shoes and proper technique to cover this part of the trail. After a few hours, a section of flat land on the top of the hill will welcome you with its arms widespread. This is your next pit stop- Nagaru. Overnight stay in tent. 

Day 5: Nagaru – Sar Pass – Biskeri Thach - 7 hours trek.

Wake up before dawn breaks and start your final trail towards the Sar pass by following the ridgeline in the direction of the south. The next patch goes towards the south-east direction passing the numerous contours of the hill. With a deep valley on both your side. The last few moments of approaching towards the victory makes your adrenaline rush beyond the charts. As you reach the MOUNTAIN HIKERS SAR PASS TREK summit, the piercing drop of a hundred feet will unfold the surreal beauty of the valley ahead. The rush of being on the zenith is impossible to define in words. Once the views will soak in your system, all the exhaustion of the climb will start fading away into pleasure. Take your quality time here and rejuvenate yourself with each piece of visuals that nature offers and once you are through with it, next comes the best part of this pass- the Descend! One needs to descend down a hundred feet by sliding only. This slide is absolutely harmless, filled with fun and takes away all the fatigue of the climb. Welcoming you with a pristine view of untouched peaks and sublime stretch of pine forests followed by grasslands, the next stop at 3500m of altitude will give you the leisure that you deserve after having an adventurous first half of the day. The mobile network and drinking water are available at this point. Overnight stay in Biskeri Thach.
