Borasu Pass Trek

Borasu Pass

About the trek, Borasu Pass, or Bara-su (5,250 meters) is a high mountain pass that is located on the border of Uttaranchal and Himachal Pradesh along the border with Tibet. It was an ancient trade route between Har-ki-Doon valley and Kinnaur valley. It is no longer used by the locals and is an escapade for trekkers and mountaineers. The trek starts from Taluka and passes through lush green Har-ki-Doon valley which is a hanging valley in the Garhwal Himalayas surrounded by magnificent Himalayan peaks and dense forests flocked with colorful birds and rich wildlife. The trek starts by following the boisterous Har-ki-doon Ganga and ends by following the colossal Baspa river. One can stay in the forest rest house in leisure or camp near Har-ki-doon Ganga. Also one can camp near the beautiful glacial lake at Marinda tal a few km from Har-ki-doon. The trail passes through glacier moraines, steep narrow ridges, sheer vertical snow slopes, and boulder fields. All in all, it is a nerve-wracking trek that is a stunning mix of backwoods and vast meadows packed with vibrant wildflowers and birds, spurting rivers and widespread glaciers, huge picturesque valley flanked by gargantuan snow-capped peaks and massive boulders.
