Chandrakhani Pass and the Parvati Valley: Lying at an exquisite height of 3,600 metres, the Chandrakhani Pass and the Parvati Valley describe beauty in its true essence. Those in search of adventure should come to the Chandrakhani Pass located against the stunning backdrop of valleys and mountains. Find sprint and fun in trekking on the craggy altitude of the Parvati Valley. Stretched over miles, the valley appears narrow with steep mountains standing on both sides.
