There’s a lot of things to do when you’re trekking. If you’re looking forward to capturing the serene beauty of the Himalayas and the surrounding around then you must carry your camera, but I would suggest the phone’s camera is enough but it has to be of good quality.
As when you’re trekking it becomes very hard to carry heavy stuff, so try to reduce your baggage’s weight so that you can easily trek wherever you like.
Jalsu Pass is a crossover pass towards the eastern side of Dhauladhar between Chamba and Kangra valleys, heightened at an altitude of 3900 m.

Even provincial tribes walk through this trek in a day from Nayagram to Baijnath. The route is not as prominent among the travelers as other passes, which makes this trek worthwhile. It is an adventure in itself.
Wander through the untouched meadows, deep rhododendron frontiers, exquisite lakes, mesmerizing waterfalls, the magnetic yellow pasture bouquets which offer an experience very few passages can match on Dhauladhars.
The journey is slippery due to the typical passage of livestock. There are enormous green grasslands at the exterior of the Jalsu Pass which makes it a wonderful place for camping.
