Being an extreme northern state of India, Himachal Pradesh offers the exposure of lush green valleys and massive snow-cover mountains to its visitors. Places like Manali and Spiti are famous for edgy mountains, curvy roads, monasteries and beautiful lakes. In winters, one of the most beautiful natural phenomenons happens in the mountains – snowfall. Glorious landscapes and glacial rivers offer immense scope for numerous adventure activities such as off-roading, trekking, paragliding, ice-skating, and rafting. If driving over a high mountain pass has been in your buck list for quite some time, this is the right time to strike it off your list.

Patseo/Jispa to Shinku-La
After witnessing so much natural beauty and adventure, you might be expecting something subtle, but this place and drive to Shinku La will completely sweep you off your feet. Rather than driving straight on the Manali-Leh highway, we will take an off-road leading to Shinku La. This is completely a new adventure trail that offers you a chance to explore the unexplored high mountain pass.
We will reach Shinku La in the evening for an overnight stay at a campsite by Camp Tethys. The campsite is surrounded by chill winds and high mountains on all sides. This charming campsite is a great place to stay as it gives you an amazing treat being an ideal place to feel the beauty of nature and enjoy it at its best. We spend wonderful time under the starry sky with our family and friends while setting up a bonfire.
Shinku-La to Udaipur/Pangi
As the first sunrays lit our campsite in its warm light in the morning, we start exploring the surroundings of our campsite. We spend most of our morning around the campsite. After breakfast we start our descent towards our next destination – Udaipur/Pangi. Drive towards Udaipur/Pangi is more vibrant and scenic. We make our way to our destination across beautiful water streams, muddy roads and barren lands. We reach Udaipur/Pangi in the evening for an overnight stay at a campsite by Camp Tethys.
Udaipur/Pangi to Sach Pass
Sach Pass is one of the most difficult passes to cross in North India at an altitude of 4500 m that runs over the Pir Panjal Mountain ranges. It connects Dalhousie with Chamba and Pangi Valley. This mountain pass is our ultimate destination which is famous among travellers and adventure seekers to experience the thrill of driving a car through it. The Pass is also a famous trekking point from Dalhousie. The panoramic view of the valley and snow-clad mountains from the pass is a never-seen-before experience. Sach Pass is a perfect getaway for nature lovers, photographers and adventure seekers. We have finally reached our destination we had been discussing all the way. To celebrate life and success of our expedition, we will spend a night at Sach Pass at a campsite by Camp Tethys.
Sach Pass to Dalhousie
We start descending towards Dalhousie in the morning after breakfast. Dalhousie is an old hill town in Himachal with mesmerising natural landscape, pine-clad valleys, flower bedecked meadows, fast flowing rivers, magnificent misty mountains and old, British architecture. You can see the Scottish and Victorian architecture that takes us back to the British era.
