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.
