  • Chamba-Lahaul Spiti over Kalicho Pass Trek Tour

Tour Detail

Kalicho Pass (4980 meters) is the pass named after Local Goddess Bhadrakali and route used by Gaddi Shepherd to Lahaul Valley with their flocks. During the trek you will find the complete difference among the two geographical regions of Himachal Pradesh i.e. Bharmour and Lauhal. The route is difficult and adventurous trek with steep gradient, even well experienced and skilled local people and Gaddi shepherd also respect the grade of the terrain. This trek is one of the most difficult routes of reaching Lahaul valley. Gaddies first take permission to cross the Kalicho Pass from Goddess Bhadrakali, whose temple is at village Banni and Gaddies sacrifice their few sheeps to Goddess to get permission. Before starting the trek we will visit the Banni Devi's temple, which is known for its powerful goddess, all the locals people visit temple before climbing the Kalicho pass. According to local belief the goddess is the protector for the people who are heading towards the high Kalicho pass. The Kali Cho Pass is, arguably, the toughest pass in Himachal Pradesh. only hardcore trekkers walk over this pass. Even the villagers of the nearby villages prefer a bus over this pass because of its extremely tough gradient. Kali Cho is comprised of two words: Kali for the Goddess Kali (Bhawani/BhadraKaali) and Cho means a waterfall.
