One of the most delightful treks in the region. This trip affords views of lush green valley’s towering snow clad mountains and barren hills with surrealistic forms and shapes. Leaving the Manali (Kullu valley), the trek proceeds through evergreen cool forests of walnut, oak and the accessional alder. The views of the entire Kullu valley are excellent and are glimpsed all along the trail. Trek through breath-taking landscape, through the meadow, where shepherds herd their buffalo and graze their sheep during summer and Monsoon Season.
Once atop the Hampta pass (4268 Mts.), other spectacular panoramas of peaks and glaciers appear. Trek to the other side of the Pass, in the Chandra Valley, along the Chandra River offers incredible view. This whole region is a typical Himalayan Alpine Zone as high summits surrounds the valley.
