Bad roads lead to scenic view
Jul 2019 • Friends
The roads are bad as soon you cut off from the main highway towards kaza. The trail has amazing landscapes along the way. We stayed at mudh which is the farthest we could go. The landscapes are amazing from there.

Serenity and friendly people
Jul 2019
Visited Mud on the way to Kaza... not a tough ride on my Thunderbird 500, but generally the roads are bad after the diversion from main road.. on the way, the instrument cluster broke :-) and as you can imagine no mechanics until we reached Kaza.. used bungee cords to tie the panel in place..

Mud is the last motorable village in the Pin valley and beyond that it's only on foot :-) we stayed at Sonam's hotel, he also owns the more popular Tara's guest house.

We still managed to cross a water crossing and ride further 9 kms until we reached a huge stream that can not be crossed (though Sonam mentioned that one Irish man could cross this ;-D)... Mud is a village of few houses and is cut off from the main highway for nearly 5-6 months a year due to heavy snow.

During summers, it's so beautiful, with clear skies, surrounded by green/ brown/ dusty mountains, patches of snow, rivers flowing.. so memorable..

Beautiful greener part of the drier Spiti Valley
Jul 2019
Pin Valley is a beautiful and the most greener part of the otherwise dessert valley. It is easily accessible through Kaza or Tabo. Lot many treks can be done from here or they end here, like Pin Parvati and Pin Bhabha Pass.
Mudh is one of the more known Village of this valley and has some very beautiful homestays and eating options. Tara guest house is one of them and offers beautiful stay option. I had a beautiful valley facing rooms at Rs 800 per night. Cheaper options available too.
Sagnam village which is about 12-13kms from Mudh towards the Kaza/Tabo side(basically the entry to Pin Valley side) also offers some cheap stays and this village too is a beautiful one with a river flowing.

A gorgeous home of rare plants and animals
Oct 2018
Although all of Spiti is incredibly beautiful and very sparsely populated, the true heart of it lies away from human structures. And this national park has all that, but it takes some planning to venture off the beaten track.

I did not go deep into the park, but what I saw made wish I had planned for some days deeper into the park.

What amazed me was that as I sat here watching the sun set over the Pin river, I saw several swallows catching insects here - at 3700 meter elevation. How they are able to navigate these valleys to their winter grounds is simply incredible. On top of that I saw several fishes here. This river must be frozen solid in winter, so these are hardy species. In every river in Spiti I found fish.

If you are interested in rare alpine species of flora and fauna, this park is for you, as here they flourish.

Splendid cold desert national park
Aug 2019
With its sub-zero temperatures and semi-frozen rivers, Pin Valley is the only cold desert National Park located in Himachal Pradesh. The park lies in the valley of the Pin river, from where it derives its name. Spreading south of Dhankar in the Spiti district near the Tibetan border, the reserve forms a natural interface between the Lahaul and Spiti divisions of the state. It was set up to protect and preserve the rare and unique Himalayan flora and fauna. Set against a back-drop of awe-inspiring icy mountain ranges, Pin Valley is snowed in for a good part of the year and a trek to this fascinating country should only be attempted by the spirited, adventurous and fit.

I went to Pin Valley National. Pin Valley National is most famous for its incredible trek which is a delight for all its visitors. Owing to the many rare plant and animal species that it houses, the National Park was established in the year 1987 and has been a major attraction for trekking enthusiasts. It is great place to go.
