From Chamba to Sach Pass
From Chamba to Sach Pass by CarSach Pass is a popular destination both for nature lovers and adventure seekers. Many young adventurists visit the pass on their motorbikes. While this allows them more freedom to enjoy the scenic beauty one can also reach Sach Pass by using more comfortable mode.
If you opt for the later, you may catch buses for Bairagarh from Chamba Bus Stand and then proceed via rented jeeps. Otherwise, you may also try for shared taxis from Chamba; but that way you may miss much of the pleasure of travelling through a picturesque valley. That is mainly because shared taxis are generally much too crowded to allow good view of the sights around you.

However, the scenic beauty all around is truly compelling. The road from Bairagarh to Satrudi passes through a dense forest of deodar. It is known as Kalaban or Black Forest. Wild flowers of different colors and fast flowing streams that are otherwise hazardous for careless driving, add to the beauty. In autumn, the area takes up a new look. The clear sky, along with wild flowers and the changing color of the leaves brings about a different kind of beauty
From Satrundi to Sach PassSach Pass is located at a distance of around 13 km from Satrundi. Although the road condition is far better in this stretch than the last one, initially it is quite steep. If you are hiking you will be required to take quite a few stops. Those traveling on motorbikes also need to stop quite a few times and allow their vehicles to cool.
As you travel higher you slowly rise above the tree line. Instead of tall deodar trees you now find field of alpine grasses stretching in all direction. Slowly, they too disappear and you see boulders strewn all over. The area is almost barren. Of Course, in some corner you may also see a small plant peeping out from crevices; but that is very rare.
