Welcome to Pin Valley
Southeast of Kaza, the Spiti River is joined by the Pin River, flowing out of a dramatic, wind-scoured valley from the heights of the Great Himalayan Range. Especially after turning south at Sangam, views are stupendous, with geological strata tilted at all conceivable angles. After a 33km drive you reach little Mudh (3770m), the valley's last settlement and the summer trailhead for the classic multiday treks Pin-Bawa and Pin-Parvati. These set out through the nearby 675-sq-km Pin Valley National Park, where you might spot ibex and blue sheep.
