Chandrakhani Pass is one of the most beautiful and serene pass, at an altitude of 3660 m located in the Kullu valley. Chandrakhani Pass offers fabulous views of the Deo Tibba peak, Pir Panjal and Parbati range of mountains. The trek begins from the village of Naggar, located about 21 km from the town of Manali. The popular trek route of Chandrakhani Pass involves a circular route from Naggar to Chandrakhani Pass and back to Manali via Malana. From the village of Naggar, the trek begins with a gradual ascent upto Rumsu and Ganachalini. The path is through forested cover of pine, deodar, and chestnut. The trek then breaks out to the alpine meadows at higher altitudes. The view from these meadows of the Kullu valley, Manali, Pir Panjal, and Bara Bhangal ranges is spell-binding. A camp can then be established at Nayu Tapru below the Chandrakhani Pass. Reaching the Chandrakhani Pas, standing above the clouds with a panoramic view all around is a divine experience. We then descend down the Kullu valley to the unique, and secluded town of Malana. Further descent, and we reach the road-head at Jari, which is the ticket back to Manali. The trek is one of the popular and easiest of treks that introduces the traveler to the remote, hilly cultures of Himachal Pradesh. The landscape through the trek varies from the alpine forests at the start of the trek to the alpine meadows. The scenic beauty of the Kullu valley, and the mountain peaks that dot that horizon is a treat for the nature lover throughout the journey. The region is also known as the Valley of Gods. Legend has that Jamlu (the presiding deity at Malana), opened a basket containing the gods of Kullu at the Chandrakhani Pass and the strong winds blew the gods to their present abodes.
Likewise, the Chandrakhani Pass pass is known for the beauty it possesses and is a decent base for making a trek journey. Chandrakhani is 3600m above sea level and offers magnificent sights while on the trial along with the marvelous sights of the Deo Tibba peak, Pir Panjal and Parbati mountain ranges. The trek normally starts from the village of Naggar located just 21 kms away from the town of Manali. The sight of Pir Panjal range to the North and the smaller Shivaliks to the South is quite potent from this Pass. The Chandrakhani Pass trek can be categorized as mild trekking that provides an excellent insight into the traditions of this valley apart from some great outdoors. The Chandrakhani Pass Trek brings a fascinating trekking route that is devoted to a great legend and offers some great views of Deo Tibba and the Pin Parvati range of mountains. The legend takes anyone far behind thousands years ago when Jamlu (the presiding deity of Malana) was carrying a basket containing Gods of Kullu. On the top of the pass when he opened the basket, a very strong wind blew the Gods all over the Kullu valley to their present abodes what the people can find then today at their respective temples. Since then the valley is known as the Valley of Gods. The Malana Village is a strong visual of culture in itself where the old traditions are still adhered.
