With vibrant meadows spreading out against the backdrop of majestic peaks, it embraces you.
In addition to providing stunning views of the Pir Panjal and Parvati mountain ranges, the pass also allows you to glimpse the Deo Tibba and Indrasan peaks. You pass through broad meadows, streams, and waterfalls as you descend from the past.
The “Valley of Gods” is another name for the region around Chandrakhani Trek. According to a tale, the deity Jamlu was carrying a basket full of gods when he approached the place, and as soon as he did, a violent gust of wind blew all the gods out of the basket. Each one descended to the earth and assumed the shape of peaks, leading to their renaming as Indrasan, Pir Panjal, Deo Tibba, and Parbati. The pass offers a stunning view of these summits. With such legends and breathtaking peaks as a backdrop, a wonderful trek is sure to keep you thrilled.
In order to reach the Chandrakhani Pass, one must traverse a variety of trees, including blue pine, deodar, walnut, golden oak, and wild cherry. A broad perspective of the Kullu region and its cloud-touching peaks is provided by the hike. The journey starts in Naggar. From here, the trail gradually ascends to the Chandrakhani Pass, which is located at an altitude of 3,713 meters.

The meeting point of the trek is Naggar which is where you will be reporting on day one. From Naggar, a small, beautiful town in the Kullu district, you will begin the trek. The tranquil village of Naggar is found on the east bank of the River Beas, tucked away among the hills. From here, you will begin your trek towards Chachogi village. Chachogi is a small village of Naggar Tehsil itself, and its 2 km from Naggar. It is an easy hike taking you to the beauty Kullu Valley beholds for trekkers. At the end of the trek, you will reach the homestays in Chachogi where you’ll spend the night. Unwind and refuel yourself for the next day after dinner and catching up with the fellow trekkers.
On day 2, wake up to a beautiful sunrise in Chachogi, from where your trek to Stelling will begin. From here, a direct path will lead you to Stelling, which is 1350 metres above sea level. It is a 5-6 hour long trek taking you through the nature and sceneries. You will arrive at your campsite at the end of your five to six-hour trek. You'll spend the night in tents beneath the stars.
On the next day, we will start to ascend towards Naya Tapru. The trail is difficult and heavily snow-covered. Although it may be challenging to walk on deep snow, the sensation is unmatched. Rhododendron, birch, oak and wild chestnut trees along the trail. The only things visible are trees and enormous boulders, and snow all around. The view improves as you ascend the peak. Until Shedu Pather, the ascent route is completely encircled by a thick forest. The woodland suddenly gives way to a big meadow after crossing some enormous rocks along the route. Beyond the area with white rocks is an open hill; the area is known as Shedu Pathar. One would be fortunate to discover themselves there if their efforts weren't for nothing. While on the same meadow as Shedu Pather, Naya Tapru is a little higher. As a consequence, Naya Tapru offers a clear view of the powerful Dhauladhar, Hanuman Tibba, and Priyadarshini ranges. It's impractical to stop yourself from taking photos, doing slides, and playing in the snow.
Today, we will trek towards the Chanderkhani top. The trail isn't very rough at the beginning of the trek. You start gaining a larger perspective of the surroundings as the treeline becomes more thin. Rhododendron trees dominate this trail. You continually acquire height as you trek to the Chandrakhani Pass, the highest point of the trek. The most beautiful natural scenery of the majestic Himalayas may be found at Chanderkhani Pass (12,185 ft). An almost three-kilometre ridge trek is required from the Chandrakhani pass till you begin descending to the Magic Valley. Compared to other pass treks in the Himalayas, this route is unique due to its ridge walk. Large snow patches can be found at the summit, where you can enjoy sliding on them, or occasionally you can find yourself standing atop the entire snow-covered mountain. The Dhauladhar range may be seen from its summit, to your left. The Pir Panjal range is to your right, and it continues into the Parvathi range. You can see numerous peaks, including Mt. Hanuman Tibba, Friendship Peak, Shikar Beh, Indrasan Peak, and others. Along with these snow-capped summits, Kullu Valley's panoramic vistas of its many forested undulating hills further enhance the beauty of the entire area. After passing the highest point, you will descend and return to the ""Naya Tapru"" campsite (9,970 ft). From here, you can have soothing views of most of the Himalayan ranges from a great distance. So, one can just sit back and enjoy a mesmerising sunset with a hot cup of tea in hand.
Here comes the final day of your trek as you’ll start descending today back to Naggar. Following breakfast, everyone will begin the descent to Naggar base camp. As we proceed through the dense vegetation, a clay surface marking the end of the trek comes into view. The descent path takes around 4 hours and it finally ends in Naggar. On reaching Naggar, you can move on to your own destinations from here.
