So you can very well imagine how adventurous and breathtaking the trekking experience of Lamkhaga Pass will be. Trekking teams can choose two-ways either from Harsil, the beautiful hill-station of the Garhwal region to end at Chitkul, the last village with inhabitation at Kinnaur Valley in Himachal Pradesh, or vice-versa. Harsil to Chitkul is the preferred route of 90 kms trekking by many adventure and jolly-trekking lovers
History has it that this enchanting Lamkhaga Pass Trek, which is comparatively remote by its location, was first crossed and enjoyed by Marco Pallis in 1933. Actually the Harshil hill-station trekking takes the route via Gangnani (where the river Gangnani flows from Himalayan Mountain); Kyarkoti; Sukhatal; Lamkhaga Pass; Gundar; Dumti; Ranikanda and ends at Chitkul. Since the area is under control of Indian Army, trekking teams have to get Inner-line Permit from the Deputy Commissioner at Uttarkashi of Uttarkhand. Here the trekking group can also have the darshan of God Viswhanath Temple, famous pilgrimage center for all Hindus in India.
