Chansal Pass in Winters ?

Post by amit.verma » Wed Dec 20, 2017 7:56 pm

Hello Everyone,

As we have a lot of long weekends coming up, I was planning to head towards Chansal Pass. So, would it be a good idea to head chansal pass during this time - December End - Jan First Week ? :roll:

Hi @amit.verma ,

Almost all the places in Himalayas which are 3500 mtrs plus have by now witnessed snowfall. As the time passes by, there would be more snowfall. Chanchal being less frequented place and with no strategic importance, isn't managed by BRO, rather PWD and is on least priority. I'm sure by the time you plan to reach there, there would be loads of snow - which brings it's own challenges, but is fun too! :)

If you are in a group and with a backup 4x4 vehicle, attempt it for sure. If you're solo, I'm not sure if you'd be able to even reach up to the pass. 2016 it had snowed out heavily and I had to return from 7kms before the pass.

In any case, I'd suggest that you talk to Maniram - the caretaker of PWD guest house at Rohru. He would have latest info on the pass as the PWD officers posted at Dodra-Kwar come to stay at Rohru when the pass closes. You can give him my reference. :)

Thank you so much @yayawar For this important piece of information. :D

By any chance do you have the contact number of Maniram or is there any way I can get in touch with him? :?:

When you reach PWD Resthouse at Rohru, show them this photo. Left one is Maniram and the right one is the cook (forgetting the name.. some Singh who lives in the quarter just behind the Rest House). They'll recognize. :)

As of last week, Chanshal pass wasn't reachable. @ Amit, when do you want to plan this trip?

Update: Due to avalanche, Chanshal pass was reachable until 6 kms from top.
But that shouldn't be a reason to avoid the trip, because a lot of fun is already there upto where you can go. Keep us posted here.
