Sach Pass in July – Itinerary, Road Conditions & Updates

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Sach Pass in Pangi Valley, the big daddy of all mountain passes and we say that the name is JUST enough to give you shivers down the spine 😀 D… Yes, you guessed it right, I just came back from a f***** amazing adventure of my entire life, last week only. The journey to Sach Pass, Pangi Valley was something that cannot be put into words, something that cannot be recalled to live it again, something that will go down as the most unforgettable experience of my lifetime, something that I can barely realize I made it through…

Numerous water crossings, endless waterfalls, snow walls as high as 40 feet, roads as if the pathway to hell, picking up an XUV to cross the landslide, clearing the landslide on your own, driving through the ever violent gushing streams and waterfalls, running through the live landslides, taking an open wild waterfall bath, getting stuck in no mans land, crossing over mighty passes of Rohtang Pass and Jalori Pass in the middle of night… Uff… Can you ask of anything more?? 😀 :D… All in all an F-amazing drive to daddy of all the mountain passes – Sach Pass in Pangi Valley which concluded with an exhilarating WTF kind of experience last week…

Adventure?? Now beat that – Sach Pass Quest
Adventure?? Now beat that - Sach Pass Quest

Well, over all, the road conditions lived up to the expectations though we were just lucky to save ourselves from heavy rains as predicted at the start of the journey. The weather just kept itself to offer optimum beauty with light rains and ever refreshing green colors. Chandrabhagha river accompanied us all throughout in Pangi Valley to keep us interested in the routes with some majestic infinite number of waterfalls puring down into it. Some were just breathtakingly beautiful with multi story falls right from the top of the mountains. All these things were WORTH the effort we had put into the trip 🙂 :)… The road conditions in most of the region of Pangi Valley were just horrendous to say at least 😉 ;)…

Though the detailed travel tale will take sometime to write, but in this article I would like to share what itinerary I followed, route I took and the updates on road conditions of this mega adventure in trans Himalayas, that is, Sach Pass – Pangi Valley.

About Sach Pass – Pangi Valley

Before I dive into the trip details, for those who do not have much idea about Sach Pass and Pangi Valley, I will give brief details of it and then will move on to the trip details.

Sach Pass is situated at an altitude of 4,420 Mtrs or 14500 feet lying on the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas and connects Chamba Valley / Churah Valley with Pangi Valley in Himachal Pradesh. It is about 127 KMs from Chamba and about 175 KMs from Dalhousie. Every years the pass gets open from late June or early July to mid October and then the road closes for winters after heavy snowfall. It is the shortest route from Chamba to the Killar with a distance of about 160 KMs and hence, once open, this route is prefered by the locals too. The other routes to Killar are, Chamba – Manali – Udaipur Killar about 680 KMs and Chamba – Jammu – Doda – Gulabgarh – Kishtwar – Killar about 570 KMs. In fact it is the shortest route for Pathankot to Leh over Manali – Leh Highway as well.

The breakup of route direction and distance to Sach Pass from Chamba is as: Chamba – Tissa (63 KM) – Bairagarh (90 KMs) – Satrundi (106 KMs) – Sach Pass (120 KMs) – Bagotu (130 KMs) – Killar (166 KMs) and altitude graph goes like Tissa (1570 Mtrs) – Bairagarh (2800 Mtrs) – Satrundi (3400 Mtrs) – Sach Pass (4420 Mtrs) – Bagotu (3600 Mtrs) – Killar (2590 Mtrs)

Once you enter Pangi Valley, you unlock yourself some of the most beautiful and amazing places to explore in the Himalayas. You will need at least 4-5 days to explore Pangi Valley after reaching Killar and then can head towards Udaipur – Tandi – Manali for going back home. Some of the beautiful places to explore in Pangi Valley around Killar are Dharwas, Luj, Sural, Hundan, Findroo, Findar, Mindhal, Parmar, etc.. to name a few. The entire Pangi Valley offer many picturesque villages and there is a PWD rest house in Cherry where you can stay in peace too along with hotels or guest houses in Killar.

Itinerary for Pangi Valley – Sach Pass Trip in July

Well, we had 5 days in hand for Sach Pass trip including one buffer day and we followed the itinerary as below:

  • Day 1: We started around 3.30 AM from my house, got together by 4.30 AM at Delhi bypass and left from Delhi. We had breakfast at Zhilmil, Karnal with stuffed paranthas and then continued in heavy + light rains all the way to Pathankot. There we took the road towards Dalhousie – Chamba and went on to reach Bairagarh at 19.30 PM in the evening. Half of the group stayed at Mannat home stay and other half stayed at hotel Chamunda just near it. Delhi to Bairagarh came out to be 686 KMs with a wrong detour towards Amritsar road for about 12-13 KMs one side.
  • Day 2: This was supposed to be the D-Day, the day when we crossed the Sach Pass driving going through Kalaban – Satrundi and reaching Killar by evening with ample of stops on the way. We started at 7.20 AM in the morning from Bairagarh just to cross the pass early in the morning before the Nallahs gets flooded on the route and travelled around 76 KMs that day to reach Killar in evening passing through Bagotu nallah. We stayed at Chamunda Hotel in Killar too :)…
  • Day 3: There was quite an anxiety on this day because a lot of was heard about Madgran Nallah which could swallow the big buses too after the noon or towards evening. The bridge wasn;t there and hence, our only option was to cross it as early as possible. So, we started at 5.45 AM from Killar and it was raining that day. Passing through various beautiful villages of Pangi Valley, witnessing loads of waterfalls and water crossings. We were able to reach Udaipur by 12.55 PM after crossing Madgran, though it was one of the longest I ever crossed but was doable without much trouble at that time. We had our brunch at Udaipur – Bhandari Bhojnalya which served us amazing veg. food. Then, we went to Trilokinath ji for darshan and cruised to Tandi – Sissu – Khoksar. We reached Rohtang Pass at 19.40 PM and old Manali at 21.20 PM. We called off this never ending day in Old Manali at Dontell Mama Guest House. Route of the day was like Killar – Cherry (14 KMs) – Purthi (28 KMs) – Tindi (54 KMs) – Madgran (70 KMs) – Udaipur (79 KMs) – Trilokinath (96 KMs) – Khoksar (175 KMs) – Rohtang Pass (194 KMs) – Manali (245 KMs)
  • Day 4: Half of this day was totally killed in Manali and then we realized we have to move to Narkanda via Jalori Pass 😀 :D… Series of events held us on the road up to 14.00 PM and we could not make much progress ahead. Finally, around 16.30 PM we crossed Aut tunnel and then started the ascend towards Jalori Pass. Spared out 2.30 Hrs at Shringi Vatika as some of us wanted to have chicken made up there as speciality 🙂 … Hence, we could end our day in dhabha at Jalori Pass at 22.40 PM. Amit, Anshul and Nitin went on to sleep in camps at Jalori Pass.
  • Day 5: Started from Jalori Pass at 7.15 AM, passed through Ani – Khanag – Sainj – Kingal – Narkanda – Shimla – Ambala – Delhi. We had our brunch at Narkanda at Himalayan Restaurant this time skipping my favorite Negi Dhabha which is just opposite of it. On the way to home, we had our drunch at McD, Zirakpur and then drove non-stop to Delhi from there to reach home by 22.00 PM at night which concluded the trip.

The total drive over the trip was about 1610 KM done in a budget of around Rs 5600 per head including all and it had a couple of very costly meals for about 1000 per person at Manali that just got wasted 🙁 🙁 … As I said, words fall short to explain this f-amazing mega adventure of my lifetime…

Road Conditions for Sach Pass in July

Following is the breakdown of road conditions for the trip:

  • Delhi – Ambala – Ludhiana – Jalandhar – Pathankot: Mostly Excellent, smooth sailing toll road.
  • Pathankot – Bungal – Bhatwan – Dunera – Nainikhad – Banikhet: Mostly good and some sections were average and very few bad patches with potholes.
  • Banikhet – Chamera Lake Reservoir – Larog – Koti: Mix of good and average roads.
  • Koti – Tissa – Bairagarh: Roads are mostly bad with few average patches Between Tissa and Bhairagarh, there are some landslide points and tricky sections along with few water crossings. Drive with care here.
  • Bairagarh – Satrundi – Sach Pass: Mostly non-existent roads, rocks, boulders on road, multiple gushing water crossings, landslide points, slush near the pass and some very very tricky sections. Quite difficult I will say.
  • Sach Pass – Bagotu – Killar: Again mostly non existent road especially till Bagotu nallah which was totally flooded. The road on the other side of Sach Pass was extremely pathetic, I mean no words for it. Might kill sedan totally. Both XUV and terrano struggled alot in water crossings, big boulders, snow and slush.
  • Killar – Cherry – Purthi – Tindi: No roads, dirt track but is OK to drive with average conditions and couple of water crossings.
  • Tindi – Madgran – Udaipur: Again no roads, dirt track, slush, couple of very heavy/violent water crossings including Madgran.
  • Udaipur – Trilokinath – Tandi: Many patches of good tarred roads and smooth sailing. Couple of places have average and bad sections.
  • Tandi – Sissu – Khoksar: Majority of sections are good but there are few sections which are narrow, with slush and very bad especially for small cars.
  • Khoksar – Gramphu – Rohtang Pass: Quite bad roads, some sections are very pathetic again especially almost up to few KMs before Rohtang Pass.
  • Rohtang Pass – Marhi – Manali – Kullu – Aut: Mostly very good roads except from Rohtang Pass to Marhi which has couple of bad sections.
  • Aut – Banjar – Ghiyaji/Jibhi – Shoja: Narrow road with mix of good and average roads.
  • Shoja – Jalori Pass – Ani: Quite bad at places with slush on road which made it more difficult. On the other side of Jalori Pass towards Ani, still fine with few bad sections.
  • Ani – Khanag – Sainj – Kingal: Mostly good roads.
  • Kingal – Narkanda – Shimla – Zirakpur – Ambala – Delhi: Smooth sailing with no issues.

Phone Signals with Data Connectivity in Pangi Valley – Sach Pass

I was carrying Airtel Postpaid, BSNL Postpaid and Vodafone Postpaid was with some friends. Following was the signal status:

  • All three were working mostly through all the route up to Bairgarh. Then, there was no signal of Airtel or Vodafone up to Tandi. In Killar, by evening BSNL started to work but connection is erratic. Udaipur had signals but then in between no signals.
  • Beyond Bairagarh, only BSNL connection worked, so do carry it else be ready for out of family connection for couple of days till you reach Tandi – Sissu area in Lahaul. Jalori Pass too had signals though a bit week for all the connections.
  • Data Connectivity was almost always available wherever the signals were present, mostly limited to 2G and at places even 3G was running.

Other Important Updates for Pangi Valley – Sach Pass Trip

  • Bairagarh, Killar both have decent hotels and also liquor shops though preferred brand can be an issue.
  • DO NOT go towards Chamba or Dalhousie and follow the road to Chamera Lake from Banikhet, then reach Koti from there. That is the short route, the other route is quite long via Chamba or Dalhousie. Neither Chamba nor Dalhousie should come on the route to Bairagarh from Pathankot, in case they come, you took a longer route.
  • Once you cross Bairagarh, you will find Dhabha at Satrundi checkpost but no paranthas so pack your food from hotel. Then after crossing Sach Pass you get to eat around Bagotu Nallah before Killar in a dhabha. After Killar in Pangi Valley, you will find dhabhas at Purthi and then at Udaipur only.
  • Killar is a big town in Pangi Valley being headquarters of it and does also have an SBI ATM.
  • You can get good Rajma from Baban or Purthi villages in Pangi Valley even in Udaipur, Lahaul or Peas as well in case you want to carry them back here.
  • We filled up fuel before Bairagarh guess near Tissa somewhere and then after that we could spot fuel pump only at Tandi on Manali – Leh Highway.
  • Whenever making a trip to Sach Pass or Pangi Valley, do leave early in the day so that water crossings have less water in them as there are numerous of them on the road with Madgran being the most violent along with Bagotu nallah.
  • Bhandari bhojnalya at Udaipur is a great place to eat homely food. We loved it a lot.

    Chandigarh, Dharamsala, Chamba, Killar, Udaipur, keylong, Kaza, tabo, sangla, chandigarh…

    • Karthik, for a 14 day plan I will suggest:

      Day 1 | Delhi/Chandigarh – Narkanda

      — Sakya abode is a nice option to stay at Kaza apart from PWD Guest houses
      Day 8 | Kaza Local Sightseeing (Ki, Kibber, Tashigang, Gette)
      Day 9 | Kaza Local (Hikkim, Komik, Langza)

      Day 13 | Keylong/Sissu – Rohtang Pass – Manali
      Day 11 | Manali – Delhi

    • Bhai any reason for making the trip from Manali? Bike? Can you hire from Delhi?

      Also, I will suggest to drop Kinnaur Valley from it and focus on Lahaul, Spiti and Pangi Valley. If you planning to focus on it, it makes sense to rent bike in Manali. Shall I suggest considering you dropping Kinnaur?

      • Sachin Alex on

        Thank you for your reply bhaai..
        The reason behind to start from Manali is that we are hiring bike from our close friend who has a bullet garage there.
        I appreciate your suggestion and it makes seance. Our starting point is Manali fixed. Could you please edit the Day # 4, 5, 6 & 7 in our itinerary and suggest the best places to visit on what all days and overnight? That would help us immensely.

        Also how about the 2nd leg of the itinerary. Is that all OK? Any issues or unsafety in Kishtwar area

        • So Sachin bhai, I will suggest you below from Day 3 to Day 13

          Day 3 – Manali – Rohtang Pass – Sissu
          Day 4 – Sissu – Tandi – Udaipur (have lunch) – Pangi – Killar
          Day 5 – Killar – Kishtwar (check the current situation up there)
          Day 6 – Kishtwar – Killar
          Day 7 – Killar – Sach Pass – may be go beyond up to Satrundi checkpost beyond Sach Pass towards Bairagarh if required then come back from Sach Pass to Killar
          day 8 – Killar – Udaipur – Sissu
          Day 9 – Sissu – Gramphu – Chandratal
          Day 10 – Chandratal – Kunzum Pass – Kaza
          Day 11 – Kaza (Langza, Hikkim, Komik, Ki, Kibber) divide them into two halves of the day and move to Pin Valley
          day 12 – Pin Valley – Dhangkar – Tabo – Kaza
          Day 13 – Kaza – Manali

          Bhai I have kept it a bit relaxed as the roads up there are not conducive to faster travel and since it will be first time, I Will suggest to make it easy and enjoy the remote beauty of Pangi Valley

        • Sachin Alex on

          Thanks a lot bhai.. that make sense.

          Is there any permit required in the whole itinerary?

        • Sachin Alex on

          And bhai.. what is the expected climate all the places.. do we need to take extra precaution?

  3. hi Dhiraj,

    can we plan Udhampur-Patnitop-Doda-Jangalwar-Kishtwar-dharwas-killar-sach Pass- Purthi-Udaipur-Keylong route on my Thunderbird Bike ? me and my wife are riding to leh. we just came to know that we can not take srinagar-Kargil-Lamayuru route since situations are not in control at Anantnag route.

  4. Hi Dheeraj, Very well-written and informative blog. Thanks! I along with few friends are planning a day trip to Sach Pass from Banikhet. We will reach Banikhet a day before and then next morning, we want to do a full-day trip to Sach Pass. Is it doable? What are the precautions we should take. Any suggestions/advice will be greatly apprecaited.
    For sure, we will go though a tour company as none of us are experineced mountain drivers.

    Cheers,
    Priya

    • Hi Priya,

      Well, the article explains all the Do’s and Don’ts but since you are going via some tour agent, there wont be any concerns. August is not the time to be in that region if you are planning to do so because landslides are very common in rains up there. If you get late while coming from Sach Pass to Banikhet, you can also stay at Bairagarh. BTW, for such a trip you DO NOT need a tour agent rather just book hotels at Banikhet/Chamba and Bairagarh and take taxi from the taxi stand there.

      • Thanks Dheeraj.

        Last question, as its hard to find the right information out there. What will be the average temperature up there in Sach Pass. Should we carry heavy warm clothings?

        Thanks,
        Priya

        • Priya, just carry a pair of light woolens or light jackets because in Himalayas, it is always recommended to carry as weather can change anytime. Else mostly weather will be nice and pleasant.

  5. Sir We are two bikers planned our ride in Aug from Delhi – Narkand – chitkul – Nako – Keylong – killar – sach pass – dalhousie – Delhi in 9 Days. is it possible to cover Kishwar – killar in the same days?
    Pls let me know fuel stations available from Kaza to Killar.

    Thank you sir.

    • Hi Kamal, possible for sure but very hectic.

      Day 1 | Delhi – Narkanda
      Day 2 | Narkanda – Sangla
      Day 3 | Sangla – Chitkul – Sangla – Nako – Tabo, very long day
      Day 4 | Tabo – Dhangkar – Pin Valley – Kaza
      Day 5 | Kaza – Chandratal – Sissu/Tandi/Keylong, very long day
      Day 6 | Sissu/Tandi/Keylong – Udaipur – Killar
      Day 7 | Killar – Sach Pass – Chamba/Bairagarh
      Day 8 | Chamba/Bairagarh – Delhi, long day

    • Thank you sir,

      Thank you sir.

      • Kamal, you will get fuel station at Kaza, then at Tandi and then after crossing over Sach Pass – Bairagarh down toowards Chamba/Banikhet/Dalhousie. In between, there will not be any fuel pump.

  6. raguraman sundaram on

    Hi Deeraj,

    Very nice write up about sach pass. I am planning for a bike trip in spiti valley between Aug 12-22. As per plan (if goes well) I would be camping at chandra taal on Aug 16th. I am planning to cover the sach pass and below is the itinerary. Let me know whether this is doable

    Aug 17 – chandrataal to Killar (over night @ killar) – 220kms
    Aug 18 – Killar to dalhousie – 187 kms
    Aug 19 – dalhousie to chandigarh
    Aug 20 – chandigarh to delhi.

    We have one extra day as buffer. Worst case need to reach delhi on Aug 21 afternoon.
    Please let me whether the plan would work ? especially considering the nalas and the time of the day I would be crossing them.

    Thanks,
    With Regards,
    -Ragu

    • It is too optimistic a route, when you travel from Chandratal to Gramphu, it is one of the most trecherous roads in entire Himalayas almost comparable to Sach Pass roads. So, adding a day will make more sense. Do Chandratal to Sissu/Keylong/Tandi, next day to Killar, then next day to Chamba/Bairagarh/Dalhousie and finally delhi

  7. Hi Dheeraj,

    First of all i would like to thank you again for helping me plan my Spiti ride last year. Just when I plan for Sach Pass this year , I see your article here which makes things even clear 🙂 So I have planned a 9 & half day bike route which goes like this :
    1 (Friday Evening) Leave for Chandigarh. Overnite stay
    2 Leave for Chamba. Overnite stay
    3 Leave for Killar via Sach Pass. Overnite stay
    4 Explore the Killar valley. Overnite stay
    5 Leave for Kishtwar.Overnite stay
    6 Leave for Killar.Overnite stay
    7 Leave for Tandi.Overnite stay
    8 Leave for Manali.Overnite stay
    9 Leave for Kufri via Jalori pass.Overnite stay
    10 Leave for home

    Is this a hectic schedule that would require some changes or is it good to go ? Also I would like to know if we need to carry extra fuel from Chamba onwards to Killar-Kishtwar-Killar-Tandi ?

    Regards
    Rahul

    Hi I am thinking to go for a roadtrip to Leh-Ladak from Mumbai in my wagonR (2013 model) in September, will my car be able to take the bad roads of Leh-Ladak during that time ?

    • For hatchback/sedan taking on Manali – Leh Highway and Ladakh, I will say:

      You will indeed face few tough challenges on the route. The hatchback/sedan will increase the level of every challenge even further, sedan is the worst candidate. My suggestion will be to go via Srinagar route as it will help you feel comfortable with the driving, provide more acclimatization and then once you have done the local Leh-Ladakh, then come back via Manali side. Secondly, since you are in hatch/sedan, then you need to drive with extra care as well. There will be some sections on the Manali – Leh highway in which you might need to sacrifice some scratches on the underbelly. Just make sure you do not bump the engine sump (know it before where it is placed in your car). You need to protect it all around the trip. Thirdly, whenever in doubt do not rush into the section rather park aside and feel the section with your foot, see how other vehicles are crossing it and make a planned route in your mind to cross that section. At the very least do carry Mseal, quick fix, funnel, jerry cans and towing rope with you all the time.

      Also, I will strongly suggest that you go through and read my series on Ladakh Self Drive tips at the links below:

      7 Useful Tips for a Self Drive to Leh – Ladakh, Routes and Road Conditions In Leh – Ladakh | Ladakh Self Drive Tips, Fuel Availability In Leh – Ladakh | Ladakh Self Drive Tips

  9. Hi Dheeraj, Your blog is amazing and super informative. Me and my husband love to travel to Himalayas and thanks to your blog our last two trips have been great. First was Chindi in April and your helpful directions saved a lot of time. The details are accurate and exactly what travelers want to know.
    Last weekend we went to Sach Pass in our humble Swift!! Still can’t get over the feeling!! We stayed at Bairagarh as recommended and it was a good decision. We were at the pass at 11am next morning. It was absolutely magical. Thanx again for the detailed route description. Looking forward to further trips..

      • Sukhmani Tiwana on

        Hi. I read your post on Facebook where you had uploaded a picture of a toppled pajero near Chandrataal. I was hoping to get more info on that, my brother was there in the car too and I haven’t been able to get through to him. If you have anyone there who has access to them can you please forward me any number?? And are they all okay? I haven’t heard from him in a week..just hoping to get any information so that I can take further action accordingly! Thanks in advance.

      I will suggest that first day you push to reach Bairagarh. Instead of Tandi, better put up at Sissu. Rest is fine. Each day leave no later than 6 AM as water crossings in Pangi Valley are nasty and becomes non-traversable later in noon.

  13. The road from Chamba to Sach Pass has been opened, will take few days to make it through from Sach Pass to Killar. However, since you can carry the bike there will only be very few patches remaining where you can carry and cross if at all required.

    • Thanks a ton for the update Dheeraj. That’s a great itinerary there. Appreciations for your time in replying each and every comment with so much patience. You’re doing a great job, thank you very much.

      My ques: I’m planning to do Pathankot to Killar on 13th of June (in one day) on a motorcycle. Is that possible? Roads will be open? Please suggest a night halt if I have to break this journey.

      If this is possible, are there any homestays or lodges to spend a night at Killar?

      Thanks again for all the info, your patience and time.

      • Thank you Prakash. Sach Pass has been opened and road to Killar from Sach Pass should open soon too. You can surely do it but I will frankly advise that you halt at Bairagarh. This will give you time to start the journey to Sach Pass early in the morning so that you can cross the Bogatu Nalla with less water in it. The late you reach there, the slim are the chances to cross it due to high rush of water

  14. Hi dheeraj first of thanks to you for ur amazing experience and guidance ..m planning sach pass from delhi via as per ur route alongwith my freind . my question is can we ride on karizma r (2007) (on one bike)? wht will be the approx cost of tour? what time will be the best time for the tour?

  15. Hi your blog helps me to understand and plan for our trip.

  16. Saurabh Sharma on

    Hi Dheeraj, Need your valuable suggestion and information/contact number if possible.

    We have planned a bike tour for Sach Pass from Delhi on 4 June 2016.
    Route would be: Delhi– Banikhet– Killar — Saach— Keylong–Spiti

    Question is: Will the roads be open by that time considering the fact that this year it didn’t snow much…
    I will be waiting for your reply as based upon that only we can go ahead as we don’t want to come back disappointed because of roads closed issue.

  17. Hi,

    Can you please let me know if there is any reliable driver you are aware of to travel with in Leh-Ladakh..

    • wati, For the leh – ladakh taxi union rate list 2016 – 17 including the contacts of some reliable taxi drivers within Leh – Ladakh, check the link here. You can get about 12-15% of discount by directly getting in touch with drivers and of course, talking in person rather on phone always help in bargaining more.

  18. Is it possible to ride from katra > Patnitop > Kishtwar > Killar > Udaipur > Keylong on June 22nd . Im going on solo bike ride and later i want to enter Kunzum La.

  19. Yogesh Gehlot on

    Planning a trip in July after 7th
    Delhi – Sach pass – srinagar – kargil – leh – Manali – Delhi

    Need help for Sach pass crossing… How long would it take from Delhi towards srinagar via Sach pass on two wheels…. KTM 390 (4 bikes)

    Any help here is really appreciated.

    Thnak you.
    Yogesh Gehlot

    • Hi Yogesh,

      Depending upon the effort you can put into long rides, it will be like: Delhi – Bairagarh, Bairagarh – Sach Pass – Killar, Killar – Kishtwar, Kishtwar – Srinagar. These all will be long rides and tough rides.

      • Yogesh Gehlot on

        Thank you Dheeraj,

        So would it be 3 days fro Delhi to srinagar via Sach pass?
        Long/ Tough rides would not be a problem.

        Regards,
        Yogesh Gehlot

        • dave morgan on

          I’ve ridden on a (pedal) cycle from Killar to Kishtwar in two days so I doubt it would take more than 4-5 hours on a motor-cycle. Possibly the same time for Bairgarh to Killar? If so, you might manage Bairgarh to Kishtwar in a long day. It would certainly be a spectacular day!

        • Hey Dave, the road from Chamba to Sach Pass has been opened, will take few days to make it through from Sach Pass to Killar. However, since you can carry the bike there will only be very few patches remaining where you can carry and cross if at all required.

      • dave morgan on

        Hi Dheeraj,

        Thanks for the news; it is welcome news indeed. I arrive in Delhi on June 13th so everything should be clear by then. Now I have to decide whether to cycle from Delhi or take the bus to Pathankot and start from there.

        Thanks again, Dave

        • Hello Dave,

          I will recommend to travel to Pathankot and then ride from there. It is already touching 47 degree C in Delhi and around, it will be unnecessary fatigue riding in such hot conditions.

  20. Beautiful trip Dheeraj!

    Whats the best month to ride through Pangi valley to Srinagar. Last year we tried in July but after Udaipur there was a landslide and had to go back and ride through Manali-Leh. Is June ok? I know its very hot in Pangi in June. But does it rain then? Snow melt due to heat? How about August? Obviously i want to avoid deeper water crossings and landslides so factoring these what are your suggestions. Thank you for the info and updates you help us with.

    • Hi Chaitanya,

      Well, July to September are the months when you can make a trip to Pangi Valley in July landslides are common, you see tons of waterfall with beautiful scenes, it does poses lot of road conditions issues and deep water crossings. Mid-late September makes it ideal as water crossings are tamed by then and roads are much stable.

  21. Supratim Paul on

    Dheeraj vai,

    We are planning for a self drive (Zoomcar – Eco Sports or Scorpio) 1st in Pangi Valley through Sach Pass and then Towards Lahual Valley (Upto Sarchu) through Baralchala Pass. Could we make this trip in July this year? I heard and read that there are some flooding nallahs in Pangi valley. Please suggest. Last year we have done Kinnaur, Lahual-Spiti, your blog helped us a lot.

    Thanks in advance.

  22. zerodecibelnirvanaa on

    Excellent itinerary designed!

    Did I hear “Negi Dhaba” at Narkanda? It has been one of my favourites too over all these years of my illicit affair with Narkanda. Found it closed(maybe seasonal) on two of my last visits in Aug-15 and Jan-16. Their chana subzi is something that get my craving tongue watering even while I am in office with my MS Lync status shouting “In a meeting”.

    Great write-up brother!

    Warm Love,
    #HimalayanWadia

  23. Sharad C. Mohan on

    HI Dheeraj, I’m planning a solo journey to Sach Pass and Pangi sometime in Jul / Aug in my Yeti 4×4. I’ve done several solos in the past, with the last one being the Lahaul-Spiti circuit (up from Kinnaur and down from Manali). Between Kaza and Rohtang, I drove through several nallahs, including Paagal Nallah. Does the Sach route have similar nallahs, or even worse? Also, is it better to do this clock-wise (up from Chamba and down from Manali) or anti-clock-wise (the reverse)?

    Also, my Yeti has a ground clearance of only 180, as against 210 of the Duster. But the only place this proved to be a problem was on the Chandra Taal leg, which was strewn with rocks. Would I encounter similar problems on the Sach route?

    Rgds,

    • Hello Sharad,

      Yes, Sach Pass has much more nallas than that route between Kaza and Manali and yes some of them are much much worse like Bogatu Nalla and Madgran Nalla, in fact Madgran is epic, never saw such a thing. It is almost like a river 🙂 🙂 …. Better do it from Chamba side and come back from Killar – Keylong – Manali side. This has more chances of at least reaching Sach Pass and then deciding upon if the road is open or not further.

      Yes, the road beyond Satrundi checkpost to Sach Pass and then further towards Boagatu Nalla will have much simlar or worse rock presence on the road, so drive with care and caution

      • Great, sounds exciting! Thanks for the quick response. I’ll probably ask for more advice closer to my journey dates. Cheers…

        • Sure Sharad, feel free to do so. If you live around Delhi NCR, DoW Mini Meet will be happening on 21st Feb at Indian Habitat Center in case you have any queries, you can get the answered there.

  24. Hey dheeraj,
    Firstly thanks for your replies. And now i want to know if i am planning to sach pass on dates 1st july to 4 july!!! Is this possible ??! To cross all passes and as u replied me about day schedules about 4 day trip could u plz suggest me about any of contact which will provide hotels booking info or book our rooms in advance. For this kinda info . Suggest me bhai..

    • This year it has been less snow, so it might be possible else in general Sach Pass opens up in first or second week of July only. Sorry bhai, no contact info. of tour operator working in that region, especially Bairagarh.

      • Ok thanks bro. So that time we would get hotels or rooms on arrival !!! ???!

        • Yes, yes, the above article has name of the hotels in Killar and Baiargarh. Both named Chamunda Hotels, you can check them out on arrival

  25. Dave Morgan on

    As mentioned at the top of these comments, I plan to cycle Sach Pass this summer (late June or as soon as the pass opens). The climb from Chamba to Sach Pass climbs about 3300m in 120 km so I am a little concerned about the altitude. I think it would be safest for me to spend a rest/acclimatisation day every 30km or so. Is there any accommodation between Chamba and Sach Pass or do I need to take a tent and food for the whole week of so I expect this 120 km to take me?

    Any information would be useful.

    Also, there is mention of a route from Darcha to Shinku La Pass. Is it feasible to make the connection on to Zanskar if I’m prepared to push my cycle for a day or two?

    Thanks, Dave

    • Hello Dave,

      You should take a halt at Bairagarh, from where Sach Pass is treacherous ride of 16 KMs with no habitation whatsoever apart from Satrundi Checkpost. Once you reach Sach Pass top, you need to ride down all the way to Bogatu Nalla where there is a Dhabha located nearby before the Nalla. Just confirm from them about the state of the nalla (water crossing) as in late afternoon it will be flooded and will be very difficult to cross. If you plan to halt at Dhabha, then next day you can ride to Killar. So, both Bairagarh and Killar are not at altitude which you should be concerned with respect to AMS. But, yes, you will have to descend to at least Bogatu from Sach Pass. You can do Chamba to Bairagarh first.

      Regarding the route to Zanskar via Shikul La pass. The road has been made through from Darcha to Shinku La pass BUT you will have to return from the top as on the other side the road is not open yet and only trek route exist from there to Sheela / Padum villages in Zanskar

      • Dave Morgan on

        My trip is approaching rapidly! Plans have changed somewhat: I’m still planning Pathankot – Sach Pass, but then on to Keylong and up to the top of the Shinku La. Then I’ll push/carry my bike along the hikers trek into Zanskar.

        My main concern is finding up-to-date information on the Sach Pass status. If I arrive in Delhi (mid-June) and it looks like it’ll be a couple of weeks until Sach Pass is open, I could ride from Delhi (hot and wet but it’ll help get my legs in shape after a winter behind a desk). Alternatively, if the pass is open, or about to open, I can get a bus to Pathankot.

        I know there was little snow this last winter but spring storms may change conditions quickly. Is there a web-site that publishes information about the status and the expected opening for the Sach Pass?

        Thanks, Dave

        • Hello Dave,

          Pushing bike on hikers trek to Zanskar? Not sure how much feasible it will be. We will be posting the upto date information about Sach Pass opening up here in the forum as well as this blog post if you want. Also, I can share numbers of guest houses up there at Bairagarh where you can enquire about opening of Sach Pass. Here is the link: https://devilonwheels.com/india/road-status-conditions/

        • Dave Morgan on

          My bike is a pedal-powered mountain bike, not a motorcycle, and weighs 40lb. I have heard of a number of people pushing/carrying to get into Zanskar from Keylong. I make settle for a couple of horses, one for bike and one for my gear, if they are readily available.

          I do not want to go the Bairagarh and wait there (days or weeks!) waiting for the pass to open. Is the expected opening for this year available anywhere? Thanks again.

        • Aah I see, Well, yeah you can do so. However, you will need to plan for the porters and mules ahead of time. They will not be available readily at the top.

        • Hey Dave, the road from Chamba to Sach Pass has been opened, will take few days to make it through from Sach Pass to Killar. However, since you can carry the bike there will only be very few patches remaining where you can carry and cross if at all required.

        • Dave Morgan on

          Thanks for your reply. I will look for porters in Darcha although I would like to ride (or try to ride) up to the pass under my own steam.

          It’s the beginning of my trip that is of greater concern at the moment. It’s difficult to make decisions without knowing how long it will be before Sach Pass opens. If it’s open (unlikely) when I arrive in Delhi, I’ll jump on a bus to Pathankot. If it isn’t, maybe I’ll pedal from Delhi to Joginder Nagar and get the train to Pathankot – I do love that narrow gauge train ride, so full of life. I don’t think there is a bagage car but I should be able to get my bike in if I’m starting at JN.

        • Yes Dave, I am sure you should be able to manage it. You should find the porters at Darcha too along with mules. Though winters did not have great amount of snowfall BUT this year March had pretty dense snowfall in the upper reaches of Lahaul, Spiti and Pangi Valley. I wish that the Sach Pass will open soon before your ride begins. If there is less distance remaining, I am sure you should be able to push your bike through for couple of KMs. I will keep posting the updates on its status here under this thread.

        • Hey Dave, the road from Chamba to Sach Pass has been opened, will take few days to make it through from Sach Pass to Killar. However, since you can carry the bike there will only be very few patches remaining where you can carry and cross if at all required.

  26. Hi,
    I cycled Keylong-Tandi-Killar-Kishtwar-Srinagar in 2014 with no water crossings or wet weather. Of course, there was not much monsoon that year.
    I’m planning next years’ adventure now: Pathankot-SachPass-Kishtwar-Srinagar-Leh, if Sach Pass is open early enough (my time in India will be late June to late August).
    If Sach Pass is late opening, I may start in Srinagar and go to Leh – Keylong-Killar-SachPass from there. I do want to travel the road from Killar to Gulabgarh again – that is the most amazing road I have cycled, but I could do that as a two or three day side trip from Killar.
    Your information is helpful for my planning. Thank you.

    • Hi Dave,

      Lucky you !! Amazing collections of some mind blowing bike rides on your website blog, kudos to the brilliant efforts.

      That will be some amazing ride for sure. Looking by the way Sach Pass opens, I feel your Plan B will be more applicable where you travel to Srinagar first and then into Ladakh and then from Ladakh you come to Keylong – Sach Pass and then towards Killar – Gulabgarh back tracking. Looking at the later winters here in India, I feel another delayed opening of passes in the making but no one can predict that you know 🙂

      Feel free to post any queries or doubts you have and in case any help required.

      There is a new route which has now opened from Darcha to Shinku La Pass towards Zanskar Valley. The road is through up to Shinku La top from where one needs to return back. In coming years this road will connect Zanskar Valley – Padum to Darcha. You may give it a try too in case you have time on hand.

  27. Anuj maheshwari on

    Is it worth doing as delhi- dalhousie – sach pass and back ? Got 1-4 October time .

  28. Tikka Bimbrahw on

    I immediately plan a trip to Sach pass n onwards to Manali. I m alone and have a Duster 4×4. Do people form a convoy from Chamba or is their anyone or a group which is leaving in around a week ? Is going alone tricky ? Any suggestions for a loner ?

    • Tikka, you will be on your own to travel up there else you can ride with taxis which will be a much safer bet especially between Bairagarh to Killar part over Sach Pass.

  29. Saurabh Sharma on

    Hi Dheeraj,
    Although I have asked so many questions in past couple of weeks from you, please bear with me for that :P.
    A quick question: Which place to go for dates Oct 18 till Oct 30 ?
    a) Spiti
    b) Ladakh
    c) Sach Pass

    How to go : (available options with me are 🙂
    a) Swift
    b) Bullet Bikes (considering the fact we will be 3 people travelling)

    Thanks in advance 🙂

      • Saurabh, I will suggest that you choose Spiti Valley from Kinnaur Valley side and come back from Kinnaur Valley only in case you want to make a trip that late in the season. Rest of the two places are not recommended such late in the season as chances of being stranded in the middle of no where are much more.

  30. Hi Dheeraj – We are two girls planning a trip by public transport from 29 aug to 5th sep , are roads ok and buses running?

    • missed mentioning that we would be entering spiti from shimla and doing whole circuit and exiting from manali.

    • Pratibha, you are planning a Spiti circuit right as per your other comment? If yes, then yes you can surely plan a trip on public transport. Buses are available from Shimla to Reckong Peo to Kaza to Manali. So, all can be covered by buses too. In between once reaching Spiti, to explore the near by places, you will need to rely on shared jeeps.

  31. what is name of your twitter handle? Any group traveling to Ladhak in mid Sep?

    • It is @devilonwheeels. Please note the extra “e” in it. Also, we do not organize any group tours. The community forum has active members who form their group as friends and travel together as friends now in case people are aligned to the dates it gets bigger like this 🙂 🙂 … Rest we only have one annual mega meet every year where people from all over India join us to travel for a cause in Himalayas.

  32. Vanol Paresh on

    Can I traveled Manali-Leh to 5september from my suv.And how much road conditions in this time

  33. Mike Cork on

    Fantastic write up, thank you for the time and effort you put into this.

    I attempted the trip over Saach Pass 2 years ago, after researching the trip I found that the ice was bad on the top of the pass and they were still clearing it. The ride up from Chamba was great, as was the ride back down. The trip was done in late July on Royal Enfields.

    Next time, we will attempt the trip in September. Hopefully next year.

    Enjoy your travels, as I always enjoy mine.

    • Thank you Mike !! Yeah, Sach Pass is always like that. All you need is luck in favour of you to cross this one of the most mighty passes in Himalayas. We had our luck on our side so we came out fine but a day or two here and there, it could be different story. Wish you best of luck for the next planned trip. September should be little less taxing as most of the snow melts and roads are much better shape with tamed water crossings.

  34. Nikita Kotian on

    Hi Dheeraj,

    We are planning for trip to Leh-Ladakh and will be going by our private car.
    We’ll be going via Manali-Leh Highway .
    The car is Chevrolet Enjoy and it is not a SUV car.
    Is it ok to take a non SUV car for Ladakh trip.

    Thanks in advance.

    Nikita.K

  35. Wow..thats an awesome ride. We are planning to cover this route from Dalhousie to reach Srinagar and our machine is Innove. Would it be fine and what are the major things to take care while covering this route?

  36. Rahul Mehra on

    WOOOW!
    Thanks for the details on the Route
    Would it be fine to drive this route on Mahindra Thar ??

  37. Rahul Mehra on

    WOOW!
    Thanks a tonne Mr.Sharma for the details on this route
    Even i am planning to explore this route by 2nd week of September
    I am planning to drive via Mahindra Thar.
    Wat do u say ? Is it a right option for this Terrian ??

  38. Dheeraj,
    Your article sure spells envy for those who couldn’t join the drive to Sach Pass and experience the enigma . But the envy gets diluted when I see pictures of those smiling faces after you all accomplished it . That moment of joy I see on all faces overtakes all other shades of emotion and I realise there is no room for envy !
    Keep the spirit of travel alive as you always do.

    Best to DoW always ,
    Sangeeta

    • Thanks a ton Sangs, good to see that the envy eventually fades away 😉 😉 … It was one of the most amazing trips I have ever undertaken in last 6 years of travel 🙂

  39. Detailed account. Great job. After reading your blogs I have detailed map of himachal and ladakh in my head. I read your blog, open google maps, search that place, read again, search again. This way a complete map has been memorised. Thanks a lots.

  40. Pankaj Kumar on

    Awesome Devils. waiting to hear sach pass tale in Mini Meet.

  41. U surely seem to had lot of fun… But did u guys do all the driving through the falls and steam or did u hire anyone? And on ur way there did u see people going on motorcycle

    • Yes Karthik, it was a great fun. We drive ourselves 🙂 … Yes, people do Sach Pass on motrocycles too and it is quite common for core adventure lovers.

  42. Dheeraj bhai,

    Sach Pass in September end and in Swift, possible hai kya ?

    Regards
    Dev

    • Dev bhai, if not love your swift then only YES else will be too tough on the car, just look at some pictures of roads above. Will be sharing more in time to come 🙂

  43. Shamsheer Khan on

    Hi Rajeev,

    We actually had a flat tyre for about 30 Kms – we managed with a travel air compressor – inflated multiple times till we got hold of one – on this stretch we have a puncture help at Dalhousie…

  44. rajeev chanda on

    Hey it would be a good idea to share the puncture expenses and the availability of puncturewallas on the mountains, it will help others to go tention free since they would know where they can fix their tyre problems.

    • Thank you Rajeev, I hope Shamsheer reply helped you out on it. Actually, we also believe in carrying own puncture repair kits, air compressor and sometimes spare stepny as well because it is very difficult to get mechanics in such remote regions.

  45. rajeev chanda on

    Your blog has helped me a great deal to understand the challenges on the trip. i mean you guys have taken efforts to tell us right from toll to routes to phone signals, i mean this is really very courteous and your spirit as a team is just not limited to your selves but you want others to be part of the larger experience… “”The Experience”…

    Your gangs approach to life is respectable and I am glad I happened to visit your blog and it has helped me plan my trip accordingly.

    A VERY BIG THANK YOU ” ACTUALLY THANK YOU IS JUST TOO SMALLER A WORD TO RESPECT YOUR SPIRIT”….” LIVE ON YOU ARE BORN JUST ONCE”

    • Yes Sachin, this can be done with an RE as well and alot of people do it Sach Pass every year on bikes too. You have to be prepared for chilly water crossings though 😀
