Chanderkhani Pass – Most Beautiful Trek in Kullu

Chanderkhani Pass is located in the Kullu District at a height of 3,660 metres. It forms a way between the villages of Rumsu and Pulag to the well known village of Malana, which indirectly forms a trekking route from Naggar to Malana across the Chanderkhani Pass.

The Chandrakhani Pass Trek brings a fascinating trekking route that is devoted to a great legend and offers some great views of Deo Tibba and the Pin Parvati range of mountains. The legend takes anyone far behind thousands years ago; when Jamlu (the presiding deity of Malana) was carrying a basket containing Gods of Kullu. On the top of the pass when he opened the basket, a very strong wind blew the Gods all over the Kullu valley to their present abodes what the people can find then today at their respective temples. Since then the valley is known as the Valley of Gods. The Malana Village is a strong visual of culture in itself where the old traditions are still adhered.

Chandrakhani Pass offers fabulous views of the Deo Tibba peak, Pir Panjal and Parbati range of mountains. The trek is one of the most beautiful treks that introduce the traveler to the remote, hilly cultures of Himachal Pradesh. The scenic beauty of the Kullu valley and the mountain peaks that dot that horizon is a treat for the nature lover throughout the journey.
