The Shimla district in Himachal is not known for treks but, if one speaks to locals and checks out the geology of the place then, it is a very convenient place for small and medium treks. One such trek is the Buran Ghati pass - A medium difficulty trek which can be undertaken between May-June and Sept-Oct. It is a direct route from Pabbar valley (Shimla district) into Sangla valley (Kinnaur District) of Himachal Pradesh and involves crossing of a 4578m high Buran Ghati or Barua Pass. Dhanwari, near Rohru in Shimla district, is the convenient road head and can be approached from Shimla via Theog and Jubbal. An ancient temple of Hatkoti between Jubbal and Rohru is an added attraction and has a tourist rest house. The trek ends in Kharcham which is a located at the junction of the Baspa and Satluj rivers, and is connected by road to Shimla. One can rest another day to visit the beautiful Kinnauri villages like Chitkul and Kalpa
