From Morinda Lake and beyond, the Borasu Pass trek slowly starts showing its true sign of being one of the very special and difficult treks in the Western Himalayas. The terrain reveals itself in form of glacial moraine with lots of laiden boulders and scree zone. Climbing up steep to the camp of Lamjunga from Sawani Bheda and then to the top of the pass offering spectacular views of the surrounding valleys and peaks of Kinnaur and Har ki Dun.

Itinerary

Day 01: Dehradun to Sankri drive
Drive: 7 hours 190 km

We start early from Dehradun and reach the village Sankri by evening. The final stretch is through the Govind Pashu Vihar National Park & Sanctuary after we cross a check post at Netwar. We rest at night in a Wild Orchid.

Day 02: Sankri (1,920 m) to Seema (2,560 m) via Taluka (1,800 m)
Drive: 1 hour Hike: 5-6 hours 14 km

Post breakfast we are transported from Sankri to Taluka. The drive is a bit bumpy. The trek commences from Taluka on a stony path. With the river Supin gushing through rapids beside us, under the shade of chir pine, deodar cedar, oak and other deciduous species. At altitudes over about 2,600 m (8,500 ft), common species include conifers such as blue pine, silver fir, spruce, yew, and deciduous species such as oak, maple, walnut, horse chestnut, hazel and rhododendron, the walk is quite pleasant. Often the passing villagers greet us on the way.

The path crosses over a few streams which merge with Supin. After a few hours of walk the village of Gangad can be seen towards the left, across the river. We continue our hike and after about an hour’s walk, the quaint village of Osla unfolds itself. Seema is a tiny settlement opposite to the river from Osla. We set camp here or stay in a hut with a local family in the village.

Day 03: Seema/Osla to Har ki Dun (3,510 m)
Hike: 4-5 hours 10 km

From Osla the trail gradually rises higher and passes through bushes of flowers like orchids, fleece flowers and sunflowers. Juniper: Juniperus communis, Juniperus indica, Juniperus squamata, Juniperus recurva, Juniperus excelsa subsp. polycarpos  The ascending path climbs high above the confluence of Supin river and the river from Ruinsara valley. After traversing higher up along the left side of the river, we camp at a very panoramic spot in Har ki Dun, located at the junction of two valleys – one originating from Jaundhar glacier and the other from beyond Hata glacier.

Day 04: Har ki Dun to Ratha Dho (4,200 m)
Hike: 4-5 hours 5 km

Today we trek at moderate pace to reach Ratha Dho. On the wasy, we pass by Morinda Lake, a small lake. A part of the trek is a bit over boulders but with the views of snow covered peaks and wide valleys, it is a beautiful walk.

Day 05: Ratha Dho to Borasu pass base camp (Upper Lamjung) (4,900 m)
Hike: 3-4 hours 4 km

On this day, we walk higher up. The path is over boulders and quite often snow covered. The campsite at upper Lamjunga is also on snow mostly. From here one gets a beautiful view of the valley behind.

Day 06: Borasu pass base camp (Upper Lamjunga) to Bunga (4,000 m) via Borasu pass (5,360 m)
Hike: 7-8 h 8 km

We start before sunrise for this day’s trek. As we keep moving higher up, the views open up behind us. After crossing two glaciers and a final ascent over boulders, the cradle shaped Borasu pass lies before us. We descend towards the Himachal side of the pass into a large glacier usually glissading over the initial slope. The trek further is along a tributary of Baspa river. We may find shepherds near the campsite.
