Sar pass is one of the most popular trails in the Pir Punjal range. Sar, in local dialect, means a lake. The Sar Pass is in Parvati Valley of Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. Sar valley overlooks the beautiful Parvati valley abundant in natural treasure. The valley is surrounded by snow clad mountains, perennial streams, waterfalls, and lush green forests. It is the seventh heaven for any adventurous traveler and nature lovers. It is recommended that Kasol be made the base camp for this trek. It is a lovely place, with its temperate climate and beautiful, elegant pine forests.

The first camp is at Zirmi is surrounded by snow-white mountains. It resembles much the beauty of molten gold in the first and last beams of sunlight. It is truly breath taking to watch the sunset or sunrise from this point. The serene meadows on the way are a sight to see. The second camp is at tila lotni. It is as picturesque as its predecessors. The ascent after Zirmi is steep and strenous. Slow and steady pace of walking is advisable as it assures good acclimatization. Further up is Tilalotni, which is the last camp before reaching Sar pass. After a long and arduous trek, the sight that Sar pass offers seems like an illusion in it’s beauty and spirit. The descent down till Manikaran through Biskeri and Bhandak Thach is exciting. Best Time to visit is April to June

Sar Pass is a moderately challenging trek in the Parvati Valley of Himachal Pradesh. Situated at an altitude of 14000 ft, it can be considered as a great introduction to high altitude trekking. This trek is also very popular amongst Indian trekkers, thanks to the annual trekking program of YHAI. However, not all of us enjoy trekking with 40-50 strangers, amid all the noise and ruckus that is inevitable when such a large number of people camp together. Trekking, after all, is about the joy of solitude and silence, as much as it is about forming everlasting friendships. If you are interested in doing this trek, minus the fanfare of fixed departures, you can book with one of the local operators in the Great Wide Open Adventure Travel Network and cross the Sar Pass, with just your own friends for company. The trail is accessible between April and October every year.
