Chanderkhani Pass - Malana Trek
Here is a trekking route that is steeped in legend and offers some great views of Deo Tibba and the Pin Parvati range of mountains. The story goes that that thousands of years ago, Jamlu (the presiding deity of Malana) was carrying a basket containing Gods of Kullu. On the top of the pass when he opened the basket, a very strong wind blew the Gods all over Kullu valley to their present abodes. Since then the valley is known as the Valley of Gods. Malana Village is a culture in itself where the old ways are still adhered. The trek provides an excellent insight into the traditions of this valley apart from some great outdoors. Malana is also known for its strange traditions, culture language and for oldest democracy of the world.
