It had broken our sleep at night, the sound of a portable speaker from the outside of the tent. Looking at the wristwatch I found the time to be 3:00 AM. Oh! we are late....!!
Pin Bhaba PassOpening the chain of the sleeping bag I suddenly sat up (in a rush). I Had only an hour in hand. In between that, we have to complete our packing and move out.... towards our trek. Otherwise, we wouldn't been able to cross the pin Bhaba pass Before 9-10 AM.

Pin Bhaba Pass is an interesting trek in Himalayan range , located in Himachal. it can start from small village Kaafnu and end in Mudh. My addiction to trek was not too old. But had realized at the first time I that it's a different feeling. This time surfing through internet I decided the high altitude Pin-Bhaba Pass. In this trek from Bhaba valley, we had to reach Pin and Spiti Valley. In Bhaba Valley there were forests, River and an abundance of greenery. But Pin and Spiti Valley were rough and Dry. I contacted a valley trekking agency and left Kolkata in a September Morning. That Time it was a trek of eight days. Out if these 8 days.....6 days would walk and 2 days vehicle ride. It was fixed it to meet the other group members at Shimla. Our trek for Bhaba would start from Kafun village, at a distance of approximately 210 Km from Shimla. We were a group of 16 trekkers. In the first day by  we reached the small hotel in Kafun by evening.

Kafun was the start of our walk. For reaching our first campsite at Muling we had a walk about 11 km. to reach 10637 ft altitude from 7878 ft. At a distance of 4 Km from Kafun, it was the high Dense forests could be found. Walking through the shades of Pine, oak and Birch Tree once we reached the Bhaga river. Suddenly a few minutes later it rained. It was not pleasant at all to walk thru the muddy way of the hilly forest. Moreover, our leader was showing us fear by telling "We have to cross the forest fast. Bears stay here....."  After walking seven to eight hours we reached our first camp.

The next day our plan was to walk 6 km. If we trek up 1000 ft
. Then we could reach our next Destination Kara. The more we trek up and look back the more we get mesmerized. Could it be so green at any place.....!! It's like a piece of Kashmir...

The shade of clouds played on the green carpet of the grassy valley After reaching Kara and making the tent, my first work was to lie down on the carpet of grass.


Pin Bhaba Pass is an interesting trek in Himalayan range , located in Himachal. it can start from small village Kaafnu and end in Mudh. The Next Day was Acclimatization day. Bhaba is more 2600 Km. high than Futshirang. Crossing that pass at the height of 16105 we have to reach the campsite at Mangrungs. As I could match my health with that altitude I spend a day in Futshirang. The next day nearly 3 AM I wake up because of the sound of the portable speaker, in the advice of Jude. Before 4 AM, glowing the light of the headlamp, we left our camp. We can't see anything in the darkness. We were walking one to the behind of other. The slope of the mountain is about 60 degrees, along with large stones and boulders. The way of going to Bhaba pass is totally different from the route in which we had walked the last 3 days. Some hundred feet before reaching the Bhaba pass we could see snows ( my main sim is now fulfilled). Nearly at 9:00 AM we reached the Pass. Snow was there was in the Pass as well. Along with bone shivering cold. 

After spending 15 minutes in the pass, it is the time to reach Pin and Bhaba Pass. In between the stony-rough valley the Pin river has flown. Crossing the river we were walking towards Mangrungs. That day we had to walk nearly 11 Km. From 16 thousand and 106 feet we came down to 16 thousand and 678 feet elevation. Nearly after 12 hours of a walk and we r
eached Mangrungs at 4 PM.

The walk of the last day was Towards Mudhu village. After waking up I  looke towards the mountain, each of them had a cap of snow on their head. The previous day, the route through which we had came now had a sheet of snow over it. The distance of Mudhu from There was 17 Km. From the Pin Spiti valley we could see the Mudhu village. The more and more we walked but couldn't reach. At, last crossing the pin river nearly at 3 PM we reached Mudhu. We didn't stay there for long. At evening said goodbye to the small village and through car we reached Kaza. But along with I had brought a lot of experience
