Rupin Pass is a high altitude pass across the Himalaya mountain range in state of Himachal Pradesh, India. It lies on a traditional shepherd and hiking route which starts from Dhaula in Uttarakhand and ends in Sangla in Himachal Pradesh. The path itself is located across mostly uninhabited areas in the Himalayan ranges at an elevation of 15,250 ft (4,650M) above sea level.
Day 1 : Reach Dhaula
Altitude: 5,100 Ft (1,554 M)
dhaula (5,100 Ft) is the Base for the Rupin Pass Trek. It is a Sleepy Hamlet of a Dozen Homes and the Last Road Head of Uttarakhand.
the Drive to Dhaula is On Beautiful Mountain Roads and Steadily Gain Altitude as You Reach Dhaula. Deep Valleys and Thick Forest Cover Keep You Company. You Will have to Reach Dehradun On Your Own, and from the Dehradun Railway Station Transport Will Be Organized to Dhaula At An Additional Cost.
Day 2 : Dhaula to Sewa
Dhaula to Sewa
Altitude: 5,100 Ft (1,554 M) to 6,300 Ft (1,920 M)
Trek Gradient: Moderate. Initial Climb for a Couple of Hours Followed By An Easy, Undulating Walk with Short Climbs and Drops.
take the Trail that Starts At the Village and Heads Up the Valley to Sewa Gaon. Past a Cattle Shelter and An Enormous Collection of Dung, the Trail Starts to Climb Sharply, 200 Metres Outside the Village – a Gentle Reminder of More such Climbs to Come. the Climb Eases Out in 20 Minutes Into the First Change of Scenery: the Rupin Fans Out 500 Ft Below You Into a Wide River Bed. Friendly Villages Hang Out of the Hills On Either Side.
Day 3 : Sewa to Jiskun
Sewa to Jiskun
Altitude: 6,300 ft (1,920 m) to 7,700 ft (2,347 m)
Trek gradient: Difficult. Easy walk for the first 3 hours followed by a steep ascent to Jiskun for 2 hours.
The trail out of Sewa cuts across a mixture of barley and potato fields and suddenly dips into a deep dark jungle – so thick that the darkness is overpowering. The descent through the mixed forest over a slushy and often smelly trail pops out into the bright river bed of the Rupin. A change so sudden and different that you need to look back just to check your bearings. For the first time on the trek you actually trek on the river and not alongside it.
Gleefully hop over and crisscross the many rivulets of the river. Veer to your left and join the trail that goes over a small wooden bridge across a stream that flows into the Rupin. Spend some time on the bridge, which is no-man’s land. On either side are the states of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh.
Day 4 : Jiskun to Udaknal
Jiskun to Udaknal
Altitude: 7,700 ft (2,347 m) to 10,100 ft (3,078 m)
Trek gradient: Difficult. An hour’s descent followed by an hour’s steep ascent, easing off till the fir forest. Steep descent for an hour followed by a gentle walk
It is a 3½ km walk to Jakha, the highest and the last village on the Rupin pass trek. The trail out of Jiskun descends rapidly through a forest of deodars and walnut until it reaches an enchanting dark fold in the mountain. The fold’s upper reaches are dark and beyond human touch. Sight the remains of an old wooden bridge, almost hidden in the foliage. Below, at eye level, cross the new wooden bridge and crane your neck up to an eerie trail cut out of the rock face. So out of place and strange, you need moments to fathom how this was built and who made them.
Day 5 : Udaknal to Dhanderas thatch
Udaknal to Dhanderas thatch (lower water fall camp)
Altitude: 10,100 ft (3,078 m) to 11,700 ft (3,566 m)
Trek gradient: Easy-moderate. Gradual ascent all the way; tricky terrain over the snow bridge.
Below, the Rupin thunders on. On the opposite bank, huge snow patches cover the gullies that once were part of glaciers feeding the river. A clump of forest starts just outside the camp area, and before you know it, you are in deep foliage.
Day 6 : Acclimatization day at Dhanderas Thatch
Acclimatization day at Dhanderas Thatch
Day 7 : Dhanderas thatch to Upper Waterfall camp
Dhanderas thatch to Upper Waterfall camp
Altitude: 11,700 ft (3,566 m) to 13,100 ft (3,993 m)
Trek gradient: Moderate. Continuously climbing trail, tricky around the snow patches at the base and top of the water fall.
Water sources: Carry sufficient water. You can refill your water bottles at streams.
This is perhaps the most important day of your trek. The acclimatization climb to the top of the waterfall will help you immensely for a super successful climb to the Rupin pass.
From Dhanderas Thatch the altitude gain for the Rupin pass crossing is almost 2,500 ft. It is considerable and it is almost certain that many will suffer from altitude sickness. It makes better sense to climb up about 1,500 ft to the top of the waterfall, allow your body to feel the effects of the altitude. Acclimatized somewhat, your body is better prepared for the grueling climb to the Rupin pass the next day. Unlike most days, start your day at leisure. Let strength come back to your limbs. After breakfast, prepare for the climb to the top of the waterfall.

Trek gradient: Difficult. Steep climb to the pass followed by a steep decent.
Towards Rupin Pass
Steep climb to the pass followed by a sharp descent. This is the longest day of your trek and the most gruelling – and perhaps the most exciting too. It has enough adventure in store to haunt your memories for a long time.
Start your day even before sun up. Make sure you are out of the camp by 5:00 am. Carry breakfast with you. You’ll need the energy boost for your brief halt at the top of the pass.
Day 9 : Ronti Gad to Sangla Via Sangla Kanda
Ronti Gad to Sangla Via Sangla Kanda

the Trail Out of the Campsite is a Shepherd’s Trail that Heads to the Valley Below. After Days You Will Come Across Shepherds Tending to Their Flocks. Multiple Trails Join Your Path and Some Go Away from It. if You Come to Two Trails that Look Alike and You Want to Make a Choice, It Doesn’t Matter. all of Them Lead to Sangla Kanda. Only, Avoid the Trails that Head Down to the River.
