So, its been a while that Monsoon is here and we couldn’t hold our wish to witness monsoon with Pahado wali ultimate Maggie. Likewise monsoon and mountains have their own love story which is unwritten till now. If you also wish to trek some of the tremendous peaks which compliment monsoon itself, here I am pointing down some amazing places to trek.

Raghupur Fort, Jalori Pass

Raghupur fort is situated at the altitude of 10900 ft high. Raghupur is one of the easiest treks I have been to, but no lesser in wide views at top. In clear weather, you can see the view of housings of Shimla(which is 150km far from the place). The fort is built by some rulers of Mandi, to protect themselves from invasion. The view from the fort is something can’t be forget. Fort on the peak, is just something else. The trek starts from Jalori stop and only 3km from the taxi stand. Its a perfect treks for beginners. Jalori Pass is around 12km from Jibhi which is completely motorable for private and public transports.

Chopta – Chandrashila

The Chopta Chandrashila Deoriatal offers a glimpse of the springtime hues of the Himalaya. This climb is a favorite among mountain enthusiasts of all stripes. In the summer, it is abundant with flowers, especially pink and scarlet Rhododendrons, and in the winter, it is misty with room to play in the snow that is falling.

Valley of Flowers, Govind Ghat

Valley of flowers is shining in the UNESCO World heritage sites, situated near Hemkund Sahib. From Ghangharia village, two treks are open, one way goes up to Hemkund Sahib, and other way goes down to Valley of Flowers. The Valley of Flowers, as its name suggests, is a place where the beauty of nature is at its peak, providing a spectacular experience.

Hampta Pass

At 14,000 feet, Himachal Pradesh’s Hampta Pass is one of the uncommon, spectacular pass crossings in the Himalayas. The verdant Kullu Valley, which has woods, grasslands, and flowering flowers, is on one side of the walk. On the other, Lahaul’s austere, nearly dry terrain with its bare mountains and scant vegetation may be seen.

Parashar Lake

The lake has the name of Sage Parashar, who is thought to have spent a considerable amount of time meditating on the river’s banks. In the location of his meditation, Raja Ban Sen, the monarch of Mandi, also erected a three-story pagoda-style temple, which he dedicated to Sage Parashar.

In this delightful scenario, special attraction here is the famous floating island which changes it location time to time. The island floats toward the east in the morning and reaches the west by the evening. No one has cracked the mystery behind floating island in between the lake.

Beas Kund

Beas Kund is a famous spot in Manali range and a solely reason to water source in the town. The Beas river follows us from the journey itself, while travelling to Manali. People do visit this place, but this place has a sacred belief behind itself. It is to be said that, Guru Ved Vyas took daily bath in the source. Guru Ved Vyas is one who wrote Mahabharata. Its is quite relatable that the name of the kund may driven from Vyas(Beas) and Kund(Lake).
