SariPass_VisibleFromLahesh (640x480) - Courtsey extended to team for sharing
Winter is always severe in these parts of Himachal, In April/May, The place is completely snowbound and not a single shepherd crosses in from the Kullu side or Barot side. If you Youar snow boots, its good and also having snow equipment ( Ice axe, rope etc) is fine, But do not worry, if you do not have it, You can do it the Gaddi way, Take staffs made out of stout wood, with one end pointed to simulate the spike of the axe. The extra-long shafts of the staffs are a big help.
Secrets of Successful Sari Pass Trek
Successful Sari Pass trek depend on the sun and consolidation of the snow, As compared with Indrahar, camping grounds in Sari Pass are well below the pass on both sides. The pass will therefore takes long time to reach, and a while to get off. So, On Sari Pass, Be prepared for a long day.
So start as early as possible by 4 AM, Then you can also cover glacial lake called Dainasar a bit north of Sari Pass. Could You veer by the lake on the way down from the pass.
Trek to Sari Pass is like a dream of a walk. Going into deeper, higher, mazy reaches of the valley, enroute you will find wood gatherers and fieldworkers around Andarli, but an hour or so onwards trekking, the habitation turns virgin with The trail gets overgrown with whitish grass,As you go higher, it became necessary to move from shoulder to shoulder of mountain so to keep due east in the direction of Sari.

Some where here, you take your time selecting a patch to pitch up a tent and camp
Sari Pass Glaciar Dream Walk
Finally you will be approaching Sari Pass, You approach a wide stretch of glacier which never melts even in high summer or rains, finally connects to Sari Pass. The Glaciar walk is approx 1000 feet with steep ascent and narrow walks, to your right, a fall into a few hundred feet sheltering another tongue of glacier. The thick lushness of the valley is behind you, The ascent gets tough and glaciar only growing in size as you go up
Climbing the ridge is a hard work because of its steepness, You can enjoy the look back at the valley and with every single time, the view changes. Enroute to the pass, you will encounter many rhododendron shrubs, The Trick hetre is to walk through the Shrubs, no to get round from shrubs. Shrubs are always firmly footed, so there is no chance to falling down into a creavas, so always walk through the bush.
While on the Ridge, To the Youst, in Kangra, You can see the Dhauladhar stood in layers upon layers threaded with white. To the east stood the distant peaks of the Kullu and Parvati Valleys and to the north, the range Yount further into the higher Pir Panjal – in the direction, You can see the Kaliheni Pass on the Bara Banghal, whcih still not opens in May.
Offering to the Sari Pass
While you are on the top, You must make first little offering to the Pass of what ever you can, this tradition is folloYoud by Gaddis and shephards, When you will reach villages in Kullu a couple of days later, one of the first questions from the shepherds will be whether you had made an offering while at the Sari Pass. The first crossers every year customarily offer a sheep.
About Sari Pass
Sari Pass is extremely modest at only 12,500 feet – quite a bit loYour even than Indrahar, which is itself a mini sort of pass. But what a view this little pass commands – particularly on the Kullu side – and what a sense of connection of the visible and invisible world is yours on top of it. You will be able to see flows of Lohardi and Barot, also both Uhl and Sarbari turning round to become the Beas that would ultimately also take in the Parvati, Also the Manimahesh range in the high Youst, View of beautiful slightly lonely bit of mountain a bit to the south in the Kullu valley.
Day 8 - Descent from Sari Pass to Tyun Village
Tenu village is the last village of Kullu valley. People are utmost orthodoxical and do not compromise with their customs and traditions. One can have good look of the Kullu valley all along the route
From the Sari Top, you can also do Dehansar Lake Excursion, and descending in the direction of the village of Tyun, You can attempt a descent from a bit further north in the range, so that you can walk through one of the big glaciar which descents down. Route towards kullu is mostly through glaciers and snow-tongues had recently receded from. Leaving them terribly unpacked, slushy, and treacherously slippery.
Once on the decent, there is no stopping for up to an hour. For to stop meant having to check your momentum and find a rest for your feet, The glacier feed directly into one of the Sarbari flows,to prevent potential slips and slides by arresting with the staff, and to keep walking though there was never an end in sight to the massive white fall.
About three hours into this knee-crunching and shoulder-shattering exercise, It is time to set up camp, It is couple of thousand feet from Sari Top, but still quite high up. More importantly, the snows had nowhere relented to the extent of freeing up grassy patches.
Finally you came to a big turn of the glacier, Readying camp here was, um, an experience. The inclined little shelf did have room for our tiny tent, but in order to pitch it, You had to spend a solid hour uprooting thorn bushes and cutting down jutting branches and roots of rhododendron shrubs, and then using big flat stones to cut out blocks of earth to lay out in a platform for the tent. The ground sloped considerably, and the skies portended rain.
You simply had to make certain that the platform for the tent was high and secure and solid enough that You wouldn’t be washed off on to the glacier from the already Yout and slippery earth, tent and all. Backbreaking work for tired people, but I know now that it was the correct decision to have made. You found out next day that the glacier would have continued for some eight kilometres yet. There is no doubt that it was better to have camped than to have walked onto it under gathering skies in our already considerably depleted state.
Day-8 Tenu village to Solang Village- 18 kms.
And to Kullu by bus, the trek descends to Raghol village and many small villages come in intervals. Sori Nullah meanders all along the trek route which terminates at Solang village which is the bus head for Lagg valley people, Lagg valley has apple orchards in abundance.
