Overview

Pin Parvati Pass Trek is a challenging & tricky crossover located at the height of 5319 meters above sea level. Trek starts from Barshaini in Parvati valley and ends in Mudh village of Spiti valley. The Pass is named after the pass link of Parvati Valley To Spiti. It takes 10 days to complete the entire trek.
Pin Parvati Pass was first crossed in August 1884 by Sir Louis Dane in search of an alternate route to the Spiti valley. This pass connects the fertile and lush Parvati valley on the Kullu side with the Pin valley on the Spiti side. It is a popular trekking route today though still rarely visited. Very few himalayan treks give you a chance to walk on a glacier.
Pin Parvati Pass trek is strictly for experienced trekkers. It is meant only for trekkers, who have done atleast 2 high altitude treks above 14,000ft before.

The pass also gives a terrific view on the side of the multicolor hue of mountains bordered by the snowy peaks and barren Spiti valley on the other.
This magnificent trek then further leads to Mantalai Lake trek to Base Camp over to Pin Parvati Pass at 17,500ft high after 8 hours of trekking. While reaching Pin Valley, you will come across various wild flowers and endangered species especially Snow leopards and Himalayan Birds.
One of the best trans himalayan treks. It is an exciting challenge for any trekker. The high altitude mountain pass is located at the height of 17,475ft gives the trekkers the experience of a lifetime.

The Pin Parvati Pass trek is considered as a difficult trek. There is a sudden altitude gain i.e. from Kheerganga to Pin Parvati Pass (9219 ft to 17,457 ft ) For that you need to have very strong lungs.

Pin Parvati Pass requires a good amount of cardiovascular endurance. And you might be thinking about how to make your lungs stronger?

Firstly, start by jogging every day. Start jogging at a slow pace and keep increasing day by day. This will make your lungs stronger than before hence cardiovascular endurance exercises are very important.

Fitness Regime
• –>. Firstly, when you start target 5km in 40 mins
• –> Then gradually increase your pace by running at least 4 times a week. Then try to
bring it down to 5km in less than 37 mins
• –> If you are a person who prefers cycling over running then your target must be 22km
means you should be able to cover 22km in 60 mins.

Here is the routine for a course of one month. You must exercise four times a week

It helps in burning calories and cut down excess weight and strengthens the heart.
2. Jogging is effective in increasing human lifespan and makes your lungs stronger. It is an aerobic activity that requires a lot of oxygen. This is a great
exercise for fighting obesity and staying healthy.
