Pin Bhaba Pass trek is one of the few treks where the trekkers witness the lush green mountains, vibrant Bhaba valley, Kinnaur as well as barren land. This trek includes passing through thick forests, and river bridges, and trekking through glaciers and moraines. The beautiful turquoise Bhaba river gives us company throughout the journey and the landscape constantly changes on the trek. It is a breathtaking journey from the valleys and meadows of Kinnaur to the sublime beauty of Pin Valley in Spiti. The trekking trail starts from Kafnu in Kinnaur and ends in Mudh village in Spiti, giving a visual delight to two distinct Himalayan cultures.

Tour's Location

Will there be water sources on the way? Will two liters of water be enough?

Our campsites are pitched near water sources. For your day’s trek, two liters of water should be enough. You will find water sources on the trek to refill your water bottles. Your trek leader will brief you about these before starting the day’s trek.

What is the washroom/toilet facilities like on the trek?

During the trek, toilet tents will be set up along each campsite. A toilet tent will have a deep pit, where one can answer nature’s call. There will be a mound of soil and a shovel to cover it up. These are dry toilets, where you’ll have to use toilet paper. This is the most hygienic and convenient way to answer nature’s call in the wild. Please use plain toilet paper and refrain from using wet wipes since these are not biodegradable.

What if it rains while trekking?

If it starts raining while you’re trekking, we will continue on the trail as planned. Your poncho should protect you from the rain. Carry a backpack cover for extra protection from rain for your belongings.

When it gets really cold can I consume alcohol?

Alcohol is dangerous in extreme cold, especially at high altitudes. Contrary to what people believe, alcohol does not make you warmer. Instead, it opens your pores, making your body colder. Moreover, it dehydrates you very quickly. Hence consumption of alcohol is absolutely prohibited on all Nomad Adventures treks. Anyone found with alcohol is quickly removed from the trek. Smoking, similarly, is not allowed on Nomad Adventures treks.

Are trek poles, jackets and other equipment available for rent from Nomad Adventures?

No, but there are shops on the base camp from where you can rent shoes, jackets and trek poles, headlights etc.

Do I need special snow shoes on this trek?

You don’t need special snowshoes. A good waterproof trekking shoe is sufficient for the trek. When there is snow, we provide micro spikes and gaiters.
