Trek to the pass is steep and goes over soft snow and a number of icy streams covered with hard snow have to be negotiated. Such type of conditions is mostly during the end of April, May and June. This trek passes over rock faces and at certain points involves very steep climbing. Inclement weather with zero visibility obstructs the movement of a trekker. This pass provides a very scenic view of both Kangra and Chamba valleys and offers distant view of the Middle and Greater Himalayas. The other side of the pass remains snow-covered until the middle of July.
This is a fine trek passing through innumerable streams, rivulets, deep and dense jungle with rich fauna and flora. Villages along the route are located on steep slopes. The yellow and green terraced fields that interspaced them are a photographer’s delight. The village folk from Kareri and adjoining villages are frequently seen on this trail winding their way to the nearest market with pots of milk, vegetables and other agricultural products. This route is also followed by many army patrols, trekkers and by local people and nomadic tribes.
This pass is of exceptional beauty and one can behold from here both sides of the Kangra and the Ravi valleys. Mules can also cross this pass. It is mostly frequented by gaddis and trekkers to enter into Ravi valley. From this pass, a gradual trail descends to a vast snowfield to the north.
