It was 1995 when a strong gentleman from Belgium with a huge rucksack pushed our office door and entered inside. Those days our office was situated on the way to Mountaineering Institute and often foreign trekkers used to step in seeking some services or maps. This gentleman was planning to go for around 50 days trek all alone and wanted us to drop his handful of post cards at post office which he had written to his family and friends. Next day, he found some Italians preparing for Bara Bhangal Trek and somehow he decided to join them and he came back to us again to get the trek organized for them. After this trek, he moved on his solo trek mission of 50 days in mountains.

Shepherd’s Trail
This trek is limited to people experienced in travel in rugged backcountry and with solid know-how of hiking. This is a trek for the 'Himalayan hand', with an opportunity to absorb unrivaled views of the Pir Panjal, Bara Bhangal and Dhauladhar ranges. It was an estimate that around 50000 sheep traverse this pass every year. The Himalayan Shepherds of Bara Bhangal region live in this valley since the time unknown. Still the government drops food to this community by helicopters.
