Chanshal Pass is certainly one of the best offbeat locations near Shimla. In fact, the one which takes you to the high altitude and captivating Chanshal Pass.The highest point of Shimla district and to the serene Saru Lake as well. Indeed, the Pass covered with snow mostly, connects small town of Rohru to the isolated villages of Dodra-Kwar, bordering Uttrakhand. Notably,Rohru is also a leading apple belt of the region. Although Rohru is a major town, the area around Chanshal Pass and beyond is quite remote. By way of contrast, it is probably among those remaining locations where human impact and climate change is least visible. The beauty of the Chanshal trek is in the variety of flora such as it passes through in just a few kilometers with thick deodar pine forests to stunted vegetation as it approaches the pass.

Come experience the unusual & venture into the unexplored terrains in the hills like never before!
