PIN VALLEY NATIONAL PARK

Trip Code : PVNP
Level : Moderate
Duration : 10 Days*
Start Date : Mar 01, 2014
End Date : Oct 31, 2014
Location : Pin Valley
Highest Point :
 
Set up as a National Park in 1987, The Pin Valley is located in the cold desert region of the Spiti Valley. With its snow laden unexplored higher reaches and slopes, the Park forms a natural habitat for a number of endangered animals including the Snow Leopard and Siberian Ibex. Spreading south of Dhankar Gompa near the Tibetan border, the park marks the border between the formerly separate districts of Lahaul and Spiti. The elevation of the park ranges from 11,500 ft near Ka Dogri to more than 20,000 ft at its highest point. Steeped in history, the influence of Tibetan culture is prevalent in the area surrounding the park, visible in the Buddhist lamas, shrines, monasteries and culture of its residents. Because of the park's high altitude and extreme temperatures, the vegetation in the area is scant, consisting mostly of alpine trees and patches of Himalayan cedar. In summer, rare birds like the Himalayan snowcock, chukar, snow partridge and snowfinch flourish in the area.
