Why These 3 Are The Best Snow Treks In Summer
If you’ve landed here, you’re probably looking for a trek to do this summer. We understand it’s hard for you to choose out of so many treks! So we’ve put down the 3 best treks to do this May and June. Read a bit about them below and scroll down to see the treks.
The most popular of them all. The mysterious skeleton lake of Roopkund piques the interest of people from all over the world! But we believe there’s a lot more to Roopkund — endless meadows, ancient oak forests and breath-taking campsites! If you’re looking for an all-rounder trek, choose Roopkund.
Not many people know that Hampta Pass is covered in snow in June. Since it’s a narrow U-shaped valley, it retains snow almost till the end of June. This adds to the dramatic crossover, where you start from the lush green Kullu valley, cross the white, snow-covered pass and enter the desert valley of Lahaul. If you are looking for drama, then Hampta Pass it is!
The toughest, and perhaps the most rewarding of these three is the Rupin Pass trek. The exhilarating pass-crossing, the sudden scenery changes, the endurance test it puts you through — you’ll be talking about it for months! If you want to challenge yourself with a difficult high altitude trek, go to Rupin Pass. Don’t think twice.
Just a tip.
Summer is a great time to see snow on all these treks. May has more snow than June. But we recommend trekking in June for the variety and contrasting landscapes you see.
