Key information: Kugti Pass

  •  A superb trek on old shepherds' trails crossing the remote and tough snow-topped Pir Panjal Range, from the Ravi Valley to Lauhal.
  •  While you will start in lovely forest, most of the time you will be in meadows and rocky highlands. Demanding trekking at the higher end, but you will enjoy wonderful views from the high mountains.
  •     Investigate the area's traditional Hindu way of life.
  •     Go in mid-Sept to mid-Oct: snow still lies in May and June, and in July/Aug are monsoon time.
  •     Tough walking in remote mountains, especially the day crossing the Jugti Pass, which, at 5,040m, is likely to cause altitude issues of not problems. Come fully prepared. Briefish info in Lonely Planet's Trekking in the Indian Himalaya.
