Return travel becomes easier for Rupin Pass and Buran Ghati trekkers as traffic clears

Till now, travelling back to Shimla from the other side of the Rupin Pass and Buran Ghati treks was not advisable owing to a landslide at Nigulsari in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. Due to this landslide, people were getting stuck in traffic jam for 2-3 days! But now the road has been repaired, and the traffic is comfortably moving.

“To avoid getting stuck in traffic, our previous groups went till Rupin Pass and Buran Ghati Pass and returned to the start point without crossing over. But now that the traffic has cleared, the current groups are most likely to cross the passes and descend to the other side,” shares Tilak Rawat, Experience Coordinator for the Rupin Pass and Buran Ghati treks.

We are constantly in touch with our teams on the Buran Ghati and Rupin Pass treks. Both groups are likely to cross their respective passes on Sept 30th.
