Kundali Pass Trek

$4500 per person

Located at an elevation of 4550 meters, pass is one of the longest and highest in Dhauladhar range. As said by locals, their forefathers named it “kundali” as it looks like a giant snake coil. There is also so many fairy tales associated with the pass which add more charm to it.

Kundli Pass is one of the highest pass in the Dhauladhar range connecting to the Bharmour region. This rarely used shepherd trail is one of the toughest trails in the region laced with a rich amount of legends and fairy tales. The remoteness of the trek provides a good opportunity for encountering with the big wildlife like bears and leopards. Kundli Pass at an elevation of (4550m) stands between Mun Peak (4650m) and Toral Pass(4375m).It is rarely used by trekking groups and even by the locals to cross to Kuwarsi with their flock. The ascent to the pass is very steep from Kangra side but moderate from Kuwarsi (Chamba) side. The shape of the pass is like a snake coil hence the name “Kundli”. Gaddis offer their prayers wherever they have installed Tridents and images of Goddess Kali and Nag Devta along the Pass. According to one legend it is said that a Gaddi Shepherd once went to this pass where a Saral (Phython) lay coiled there. The Saral swallowed the shepherd. The shepherd had a Sickle in his hand and he used it to break himself free by killing the snake.Then he buried the snake using the snow nearby. The snow over time has turned into a glacier called as Sarali da Pher (Serpents Glacier) which still exists and the trail to Kundli Pass is over this slippery glacier.
