Buran Ghati Trek, Pabbar Valley Himachal Pradesh

8 Days

Every hike offers breathtaking terrain. We reluctantly admit that every trek also has a few rough spots. Even with the sharpest critical eye, it can be challenging to identify these flaws while on the Buran Ghati trek.

On this walk, there is never a moment when you feel let down. It seems as though the best elements of our Himalayan trips were taken from them and combined to create the ideal trek.

Janglik, a historic village that is evocative of the “untouched by civilization” settlements one would see on the Har Ki Dun walk, serves as the starting point for the trip. After ascending out of Janglik, the track enters a beautifully thick forest before bursting onto the Dayara meadows. Most hikers get to this point and halt in their steps, mouths hanging open in awe of Dayara Meadows.

You might assume that the meadows are over once you leave Dayara, but you couldn’t be more mistaken. Forests and meadows line the route to Lytham.


This walk, which will take you to an altitude of roughly 15000 feet above sea level, can be categorized as moderate to challenging.

The Dayara Meadows are a sight to behold, and Chandranahan Lake is another important lodestone that is covered in melting snow. The Dhauladhar range, which rises astonishingly 12,000 feet from the valley floor to form a stunning barrier wall, and Chander Nahan Lake, located close to Chansal Peak, are the main attractions of this location. Both are captivating.
