The Buran Ghati trek is a well-known trek in the trekking world, with a variety of breathtaking views along the way. Trekking in Himachal will certainly refresh you due to the diverse landscapes it has to offer. The thicker and denser Oak and Pine trees seem creative as you walk through them. Some of the beautiful sights you can see along the way include vast green meadows, sharp edges at high altitudes, snow-capped peaks all around, small streams and brooks, quaint villages, and so on. One of the trek's highlights is Chandranahan lake, which is located at a high altitude. Many people in the area consider this lake to be sacred. The view from both sides of the Buran Pass is breathtaking. After spending some time at the pool, you'll go for an acclimatization walk nearby. Buran Pass is a beautiful and scenic trail that connects the Pabbar River Valley and the Baspa Valley, location Wise the trail is located in Himachal Pradesh's south-eastern flank, in the upper reaches of Shimla and Kinnaur districts. The trail allows visitors to see the glacial Chandranahan lake as well as the majesty of the valley and the expanse of breathtaking Dayara meadows. The Buran Pass (also known as Barua Pass) requires some maneuvering, as it is a steep descent on ice and snow at a height of 15000 feet. This lovely trail is further enhanced by ancient trees, apple orchards, and the old world villages of Janglik and Barua. As all high altitude treks in the Himalayas (apart from few trans-Himalayan treks), the Buran Ghati trek also can be done best in two seasons. One being in summer before monsoon and the latter being post-monsoon in autumn/fall.
Summer (May/June): From the middle of May to the end of June. Expect moderate to heavy snow above 4000 m/13000 ft during this period due to the winter's leftover snow. Because of the snow, descending from the pass to the Barua side may necessitate the use of a rope and an ice axe to anchor. Rappelling on this gradient is a lot of fun.
Autumn/post-monsoon (Sep/Oct): This is traditionally the best window for any high-altitude Himalayan pass. After the monsoon, the weather clears up and the cloud dissipates. September is normally greener, and the meadows (known locally as Thatch) are at their finest. The grass will turn golden in October, and the temperature will drop.
