Trekkers travelling from Chandigarh to Rohru for the Rupin Pass trek should expect delays and traffic jams between Shimla and Rohru.

“We’ve received an update that the traffic is moving one-way on this route. There are also a lot of trucks on this route as it’s apple harvest season and apples are being transported from the Rohru region. Due to this, the journey of 3-hours between Shimla and Rohru is presently taking 5 hours,” shares Tilak Rawat, Experience Coordinator for the Rupin Pass trek.

In such a scenario, it is advisable to reach Chandigrah early in the morning and start travelling towards Rohru one day prior to the trek. This will ensure that you are in time for your pick-up for the Rupin Pass trek

The autumn season of Rupin Pass is starting from September 14th. It is one of the most beautiful seasons to experience this trek which comes alive with vibrant autumn colours and waterfalls.

We will share more updates about the upcoming Rupin Pass trek right here.
