The trek which give the chance to learn the techniques of trekking for all the beginners known as Jalsu Jot. Jalsu, origin of the name unknown, is one of the Eastern most Dhauladhar passes at 3450 metres above sea level with its gentle sloping trail towards the North side, it is one of the most extensively used shepherd routes by the Himachali Gaddi tribes. Gaddies of Bharmour especially the resident of Holi valley used this trek whenever they have to go Kangra District instead of long bus route. Even local peoples run this trek in a day from Nayagram to Baijnath. This route is not as popular with tourists as some other Dhauladhar passes; Jalsu is an experience in itself. The rolling grasslands with vegetation extending deep into the trail, sprinkling of conifers, rhododendron bushes and the beautiful yellow grass flowers offer a colourful experience which few other passes can match.Like other Dhauladhar passes, Jalsu forms the boundary between Chamba and Kangra districts but unlike other Dhauladhar passes, its beauty is not in the bareness and rockiness but in the variety of vegetation it supports and colours it shows on both sides. You also meet a lot of people on the way, shepherds, shopkeepers, tourists. So, if you are here to meet people, understand culture while also appreciating the views, this is the pass for you. Just the way Jalsu on the North is different with its gentle trail, the views are different as well. Pir Panjal ranges are visible but the perspective is completely different.
