Why Nalgan pass trek?
Nalgan Pass is a high altitude pass across the Himalaya mountain range in state of Himachal Pradesh, India. It lies on a traditional shepherd and hiking rout which starts from Dhaula in Uttarakhand and ends in Sangla, Chitkul Road head in Himachal Pradesh.
The path itself is located across mostly uninhabited areas in the Himalayan ranges at an elevation of 4678 Meters above sea level It is quite remote, remote villages, Jiskun, Sewa, Jakha Kinor valley Sangal ,Chitkul of Garhwal Himalayas the route demanding, and at places strenuous but once you reach the lake its beauty mesmerises you. Even in June, the lake can be covered by a sheet of ice and its steep slopes covered by a dense blanket of snow. On the fringes of the lake, time stands still.
Kanasar can be reached through a couple of routes but the closest access was the Panchodar valley, which lies to one side of the Nalgan valley. The lake, seen from afar, resembles a human foot and could easily measure up to a kilometre in length and about two to three hundred metres in width at midpoint. The lake itself is interesting as it has an archipelago, a couple of islands right in the middle.
After staring from Sangla in Himachal, crossing the Nalgan Pass at 4200 M and after 8 days, you reach a top of the ridge at 4450 M and descend down to reach the lake.
