Don't miss this trek. MUST DO..

I wouldn’t recommend this trek for beginners. You should have done minimum 2-3 treks of similar scale before you attempt this because you’ll be climbing upto 13,500 feet in probably extreme weather conditions. I’m glad that I could finish the trek and have seen snow enough for a lifetime

A very beautiful trek in the Himalayas which is just perfect for beginners who want to start trekking in the Himalaya. It is a challenging trek with height of 13800 ft. It is in kasol area and offers mind blowing sceneries. A good nature photography session can be done here. The view from peak is the ones you see in dreams. Sar in local language means lake. There is a lake at the peak at 13800 ft and thus this trail is named Sar pass.
