About Buran Ghati Trek

Buran Ghati Trek is for you if you want the best of all in one trek. The Buran Ghati trek begins in Janglik, about 150 kilometres from Shimla. The path winds through a thicket of Oak and Pine trees. Buran Ghati Trek also includes a visit to the holy Chandranahan Lake. For the most part of the year, the glacial lake is frozen. The trail is abundant with flowers and herbs. You will be awestruck by the wonder of several glistening streams of water. Near Barua village, there are a lot of fruit trees. Apples, pears, apricots, and peaches are among the fruits grown in this area. Buran Pass is situated at an elevation of 15059 feet. Buran Pass offers one of the best panoramic views available.

After the pass, the trail becomes a straight wall that you must fall down for the majority of the time.
