Overview of Itinerary:
Based on the below flight suggestion do book your flights accordingly. If any queries, feel free to ask us. We want everyone to arrive at the same time in Delhi Airport. There will be only 1 pickup arranged and it’s going to be a long over night ride.
Day 1: Singapore to Delhi to Dehradun – 266 km Drive (Overnight Journey)
Upon arrival at Delhi airport, Meetup with the local driver and over night ride to Dehradun (on average it takes around 8-9hours)
Day 2: Dehradun to Dhaula – 180 km Drive
Assemble in Dehradun by 7 AM and board your vehicles for Dhaula. Dhaula is a quaint village in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand. The homestay cabin is tucked into the lush woods on a gradual mountain slope overlooking the Rupin river below. Spend the night in one of the local guest houses in Dhaula. The Rupin Pass Trek begins from Dhaula the next morning after steaming-hot cups of chai.
Day 3: Trek 7 km to homestay in Sewa (6,300 ft). Time to reach: 6 hours
An easy 11 km trek from Dhaula to Sewa with apple & apricot trees in abundance on the trail. The initial walk is through farms till you enter the dense jungle. The richness of the number of streams in the last leg of the trek is refreshing. As you reach Sewa, the crowned jewel of the village is an ancient Shiva temple that opens once every 12 years to welcome a local visiting god. Camp overnight at Sewa village.
Day 4: Trek 9 km from Sewa to homestay in Jhaka (8,700 ft). Time to reach: 7 hours
Today we will trek to the Hanging Village of Jhaka, a challenging but rewarding climb. The final section is through beautiful deodar & walnut trees. Rising from a deep gorge, Jhaka can be spotted through the forest perched high up on a neighboring mountain. The Hanging Village gets its name from the way it seems to vertically climb the mountain itself, with your homestay balcony jutting right over the edge of the cliffs. Overnight in Jiskun.
Day 5: Trek 6 km to Saruwas Thatch camp (11,150 ft). Time to reach: 5 hours
Your ascent today brings many surprises with it. Dense forests, meadows and snow bridges dot the way. The river is your companion today, and a thundering river waits for you to carefully cross it overhead on a log bridge. As you approach Saruwas Thatch, your climb levels off into a meadow tucked beneath the mountains, painted in purple rhododendrons all around. The proximate distance to Saruwas thatch is 5kms which will take about 4-5 hours. Overnight camp at Saruwas Thatch.
Day 6: Trek 5 km to Dhanderas Thatch camp (lower waterfall) (11,680 ft). Time to Reach: 4 hours
Today brings you your first glimpse of the infamous high-altitude Rupin Pass waterfall, and it is well worth it. Only a 500 ft ascent today for acclimatization purposes, the day’s hike is gentle but stunning, tempting all who walk the trail to take a quick detour and slide (or glissade, as us trekking nerds say) down the snow slopes for a dose of adrenaline. Overnight camp at Dhanderas Thatch, where the Rupin waterfall you will climb tomorrow can be heard thundering above you.
Day 7: Trek 3 km steep to Upper Waterfall camp (13,120 ft). Time to Reach: 3 hours
Get your cameras ready- today’s hike is straight up the side of that massive waterfall you’ve inched a little closer to each day. We trek straight up the same cliff that the mighty Rupin River cascades down from just a few feet away. Upper waterfall campsite is waiting for you at the top, and it’s like entering a new world. You’ve left the treelined far below, and the landscape turns to a frozen landscape blanketed in deep untouched snow with jagged black mountains all around.
Day 8: Trek 10 km to Ronti Gad camp (13,420 ft) via Rupin Pass (15,200 ft). Time to Reach: 11 hours
Today is what you’ve been waiting for- and you’re going to have to work for it. We will break camps early in the morning to have more time. Your newfound skills on the snow will be put to the test (depending on the season), and you will use our snowshoes to traverse the steep, icy climb to the saddle-shaped Rupin Pass itself. The summit is worth the icy climb, revealing a 360-degree view of multiple mountain ranges, connected by the pass, which is adorned with prayer flags. The steep descent down the other side brings you to Ronti Gad camp tucked into a meadow just above the treelined.
Day 9: Trek 12 km to Sangla village (8,800 ft). Sangla to Shimla – 225 km Drive
What goes up must come down- like on most treks, the last day’s trail is a steep descent. The spectacular views of Kinner Kailash Ranges will keep the photographer in you busy. Slowly but steadily, we glance our first view of civilization far below as we pass through old stone house ruins, fields of grazing chupas and village farms & orchards. The lush green fields are a welcome refreshment after several days in the white landscape of the high mountains. We will reach Sangla in 5-6 hours. After reaching Sangla, we will board our vehicles for the return journey to Shimla. We will reach Shimla late at night
Overnight ride to Delhi.
