GIRIVIHAR has since its conception in 1964, been devoted to outdoor adventure activities like hiking, rock climbing and mountaineering.
Adventure Activities inculcate courage, patience, determination, leadership, confidence, team spirit and cultivate a love for the environment and respect for nature.
Girivihar is announcing High Altitude trek to Chandrakhani Pass, located in Manali region, Himachal Pradesh. This trek is open for all trekkers as well as veterans. Just ensure that you are excited about the trip and are in good physical shape (comfortable walking for 5-6 hours in a day).
Chandrakhani Pass is one of the most popular Himalayan treks with moderate difficulty. Legend says that the chief deity of Malana was passing through this route carrying a basket full of Gods of Kullu. Somehow, his basket opened and all the gods blew over Kullu, since then this region is known as the Valley of Gods.
Chandrakhani Pass provides enthralling views of Deo Tibba and Pin Parvati range of mountains. One can see the snow clad Himalayan peaks with imposing heights and the most amazing yet dramatic sunrises ever.
