• Summary of Kugti Pass Trek

    Max Altitude: 5050 Mts.
    Best Time June to Mid October
    Difficulty: Moderate

    The Kugti Pass in the Chamba district brings the scenic crossroads at an altitude of around 5,050 m above the sea level. Being the part of the Pir Panjal range of the Central Himalayas, this could be a perfect destination for the trekkers. By ascending to this region, the trekkers can reach up to the Duggi plain which is a grazing land and an ideal camping ground. While reaching at the summit, the trekkers can get the chance to find the spectacular Mani Mahesh Kailash Peak, the Dhauladhar ranges and also the snow capped mountains beyond Lahul Valley. At the base of the Kugti Pass, the trekkers can also explore the Leah Cave.

    The Kugti Pass and Lahul Valley trekking trail starts at Brahmaur that leads to Hadsar, which is 13 km away, and from Hadsar the ascending and descending trail takes the trekkers to reach Kugti village. At Duggi Plain, the travelers pass through the village, and cross a side-stream to further climb along the Budhil Gorge. On the trekking route, the presence of Keylong Temple and the temple of goddess Murkula Devi of Kugti Pass make the spot more rejuvenating and spiritual. From the temple, the tourists can climb through alpine meadows to reach Duggi camping ground. This vast rocky grassland is located at the confluence of the Budhil River and Duggi stream.
