To reach the starting point of your Bhabha Pass trek, you have to take a bus or a private car to Kafnu from Shimla. This is the closest access point to Kafnu, from where you can avail state-run buses as well as cars for hire. The distance between Shimla and Kafnu is 208 km, and it takes approximately 7-8 hours to traverse this distance by road.
The Bhabha Pass trek starts in Kafnu, and the first day of your trek is spent reaching the town of Kafnu in Himachal Pradesh. After reaching Kafnu, you will embark on the trek which will lead you to Bhabha Pass on the 5th day, after which trek continues for 3 more days, which concludes with you reaching Manali.
Q: 1 How is Bhaba Pass Trek weather?
A: 1 The weather at Bhabha Pass is moderately colder and you may find snow at the end trail near the pass. The day temperature will be varying from 13 to 18 degrees Celsius and the night one will be from 0 to 7 degrees Celsius from June to October mid. Rain will be there at times and it is unpredictable.
Q: 2 What is the level of fitness expected from the participants for Bhaba Pass Trek?
A: 2 The fitter you are the more you'll take away from the experience. Take as much time as you can for cardio exercise and strength training, including core strength. This will make it far easier for you to trek and explore the terrain with your guide. Moreover, exercises aid in acclimatization for the trip. Experience of walking for long distances with heavy weights (at least 15 Kg) will be a useful preparation.

If by a rare consequence Himalayan Daredevils calls off/cancels a trek:
At Himalayan Daredevils, we almost never call off or cancel our treks. But in the rare event that we do call off or cancel a trek due to any unforeseen circumstances or natural catastrophes like continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that prevents us from carrying out a trek in a safe manner, unforeseeable circumstances like local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any such situations that prevents a safe trekking experience, Himalayan Daredevils will issue a voucher summing up to the same amount as your trek fee.
The voucher can be redeemed on any of the treks over a period of the next year.
If the entirety of your group fails to reach or cross the pickup point, or abandons the trek, due to any unforeseen circumstances like snowfall or heavy rainfall, landslide, and such, in such a case the voucher will not be issued. You can, however, choose to repeat the trek with us
The voucher is also not issued if for any reason you have to come down from the trek. The trek leader may send you down from the trek, owing to reasons like lack of fitness, AMS, blood pressure, turn-around time, health issues, or if you are found smoking/ drinking, or breaking the rules of the trek. Vouchers are issued only when the whole trek is canceled or called off on behalf of Himalayan Daredevils.
In the rare event that Himalayan Daredevils shift a trek:
As we mention always, weather conditions at high altitudes are extremely unpredictable and can change at any time of any day. Also, situations like natural calamities or political unrest, pandemics and lockdowns, etc are out of our control and if an event cannot run under any such circumstances that we do not directly have control over then we will try to give you an alternative trek, which means your trek will be shifted from one trek to another, which will be safer and more favorable.
In these cases, a voucher is issued to mitigate the difference in cost between the two treks. You can redeem the voucher at any time over a period of one year from the date of issue. A refund fee or refund of the difference is not applicable.
