The Pin Parbati Pass (also written Pin Parvati Pass) is a mountain pass in Himachal Pradesh, India, at 5,319 meters.[1] It was first crossed in August 1884 by Sir Louis Dane in search of an alternate route to the Spiti valley.[2][3] This pass connects the fertile and lush Parbati valley on the Kullu side with the Pin valley on the Spiti side.[4]

It is a popular trekking route today. An Army expedition attempted the 155 km route in 2013.[1]
