Chandrakhani Pass or Chanderkhani Pass is one of the most beautiful treks of Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh. The Chandrakhani Pass is located at a height of 12,800 ft above sea level in Kullu Valley. The more the height the better the view, Chandrakhani pass offers scenic views of the Deo Tibba Peak, Pir Panjal and Parbati Range. The beauty of Kullu valley is doubled with the addition of the Snow-Clad Mountains in the surroundings. The region is also known as the Valley of Gods.
