Jalsu Pass

Jalsu Pass Trek

Jalsu is a low height Pass of the Dhauldhar range that connects Kangra Valley and Chamba District. Gaddi shepherds have used this path from centuries to travel between Kangra and their homeland Chamba. The pass is at the height of 3450 meters above sea level with its gentle sloping trail towards the North side, it is one of the most extensively used shepherd routes by Gaddi tribes. This route is not very popular with tourists as some of the other Dhauladhar Passes, but being unique it is an experience in itself. The best season to travel is between April to September, especially before the monsoon when the valley starts to blossom with variety of flowers to live it up to its name of ‘Valley of flower’. The trek can either start from Chamba or Kangra side.<br /> The spectacular meadows atop the Jalsu Pass trek and en-route offer a mesmerizing view. Jalsu Pass is the easiest connecting link between Chamba and Kangra Valleys.
