Annual Trek - SARU TAAL


Book for this event : click here

Trek to SARU TAAL is one of the few unexplored, less known & most spectacular and impressive treks of the Pabbar Valley in District Shimla.

On this trek, you will traverse the Great Himalayas and appreciate the sheer geographic diversity - from the verdant, forested valley and the flowered meadows (thatch) carpeted with wildflowers. Combine this with an interest in the variety of birds, wildlife, forest and wild flowers and the opportunity to view many snow capped peaks and you have all the ingredients for a highly trekking holiday in May 2009 even for the laid back person.
