  • The border between India and Tibet lies in the proximity of this place.
  • It is the pass that connects Tons valley in Uttarakhand to Baspa river valley.

Overview

Every year plenty of trekkers from around the world come for treks in Uttarakhand. It is one of the most versatile treks in the whole Himalayas. The bypass which you will follow to achieve this is called "Borasu Pass". Borasu Pass is a high mountain pass in the Himalayas of Uttarakhand, located on the border of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh near the border with Tibet. In the olden days, it served as a trade route between Har Ki Doon and Kinnaur valley. It is the pass that connects Tons valley in Uttarakhand to Baspa river valley.


The trekkers walk along this tricky route, riddled with mountains, boulders, and rivers. It is a blend of snowy mountains and green pastures. On the route, we see a blissful sight of the Har Ki Dun valley past which the ascent is steep and tedious. The campsites are not the most comfortable ones and you do learn to love life as it comes in this eight-day trek. In return, we capture the enchanting views of the Marinda Tal and not so faraway peaks Kala Nag, Bandarpoonch, and Swargarohini standing on the Borasu Pass. On the way are fuming rivers you can splash in. The Borasu Pass trek is one level up exercise for the trekking freaks. When we are in the regions near Har Ki Dun valley, the chances of spotting wildlife are very high since we are in the expanse of Govind Pashu Vihar Wildlife Sanctuary. There is a famous Someshwar Temple on the route which is highly revered by the locals.


It is one of the rarely visited regions in the Himalayas, far from settlements, where you find nature unscathed by human desires. We sneak quietly through these mesmerizing routes and set our eyes on the bewildering beauty of the Himalayas. We end our trek at Chitkul, which is the last village before India's border with Tibet. The trek begins on an easy note, becomes strenuous in the middle and eases in the last two days. This trek can be done in the reverse as well, starting from Chitkul, however, it is easier to ascend from the Har Ki Dun side since the steep is gradual and allows acclimatization of trekkers.


Borasu Pass trek height or elevation is encircled around 17,224 feet. It demands around 8 days to comfortably complete the trek. Borasu Trek with Trekmunk is priced at 29,450 INR which will take care of almost everything.


Best Time to Visit

A perfect time to explore the Borasu Pass trek is from June to mid-July and then from mid-September to October. During this period, the weather remains pleasant. Summers are perfect, with a maximum temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and a minimum of 10 degrees. It is advisable to avoid at the time of August and the initial days of September because of the heavy breakdown of monsoon during this time. For beginners, the best time to complete the trek is before the winter sets in i.e at the time of mid-September to the ending of October, considered to be the decent time to explore the place.
