This is the day you are gonna conquer the frontier – Rupin Pass is higher than any European Summit. This day you will encounter 75-80 degree steep climb. The trek will start early morning, there is not option of halting as you need to capitalize the hard snow as much as you can before the sun shine, also that slope will be avalanche prone. But chilling wind with snow dust will make you climb harder. After reaching a plain surface, you could get a glimpse of Rupin pass above . The whole place will be snow-clad and you need to follow in line till the final climb to ensure that you maintain a rhythm. Final Climb to the Rupin Pass will be the toughest that you can encounter from earliest. At one point it will become very steep, so the instructors will tie a rope to help you get some grip/balance. The last 30 minutes climb will be more agonizing. But when you reach the summit of Rupin Pass, the feeling of accomplishment will be immense, you will bubble with joy, you will be all reveling at the Altitude of 4650M with panoramic view of Kinner Kailash & other Himalayan peaks. This achievement and experience cannot be explained in words, its way beyond that !! for that you need to witness it….Overnight stay in Campsite .
