Day 4:Keylong to Urgus Via Triloknath, 50kms+ 24 Kms

Another exciting day. The ride from Keylong to Urgus is nothing short of Spectacular. The road is a combination of metalled and un-metalled. From Keylong we retrace the road back to Tandi Bridge and from here take the link road on your right for Triloknath and Udaipur. Udaipur is about 50kms form Keylong. The first few kilometre is somewhat metalled with potholes, but a few kilometres on we touch smooth tarmac. Riding along this 20km stretch of smooth road is nothing but perfect. The villages along the way are charming and you can see the locals working in their fields. 10kms before Udaipur a road on your right takes you to Triloknath. Here you can visit the Triloknath Temple, which is an ancient Shiva Temple. After paying homage to the deity here we will retrace back to the main road and head for Udaipur. Just as we enter Udaipur we take right after crossing a bridge and enter Miyar Valley. Urgus is about 24kms from here. The entire route has patches of metalled and unmetalled surface. You might have to cross a few streams on the way too. Some stretches of this route are just magnificent and you will be tempted to stop to take it all in.

Urgus: Urgus is the second last village of the valley. Khanjar, lying in the horizon to the north being the last and the start point to many interesting treks. Urgus is a quaint little village perched on the slope of the hill while the bottom of the hill, which is much flatter is used for agriculture. The village has some amazing fresh water supply networks. There are numerous networks of pipes zig- zagging across the village. At the top of the village is little Shrine dedicated to the Deity of the village- “The Kusurdh Naag”.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Camp

Day 5:Urgus To Killar via Udaipur, 24kms + 80kms

After a hearty breakfast we will retrace our route back to Udaipur. We will briefly stop at Udaipur to visit the Mrikula Mata Temple. As soon as we leave Udaipur we bid Goodbye to Tarmac. The entire 80kms from Udaipur to Killar is un-metalled. The entire route is very challenging, there are large stretches of bull dust, rocky surface or scree and keeping the bike stable takes every effort. All along the way there is at least 100-150m drop and rocky over hangs. Once again the landscape just keeps getting better and better. Although the distance isn’t much but the road doesn’t allow you to ride too fast and thus we arrive in Killar in the late afternoon. Infact, when you finally touch tarmac in Killar you feel like getting off the bike and kissing this beautiful, smooth and kind your bum tarmac.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Camp

Day 6:Killar

Today, we will have an easy start. We will have a rest day in Killar itself and so around to see some villages. In August and September, Pangi is a beautiful place to visit. Many of its forest are covered in birch trees and during autumn as the season is changing the colours on these trees present an enchanting view to the visitors. We will visit Hudhaan village today and if time permits, we will also visit Suraal. Both of these are the two of the only four Buddhist villages in the Pangi Valley.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Camp

Day 7:Killar to Chamba, 170 Kms

After having breakfast and then bidding farewell to the support staff we will set forth for the Sach Pass. The entire road to the pass and about 18kms after the pass is un-metalled and requires 100% concentration. After leaving killar we cross the bridge over Chenab River and start going uphill. This stretch of the road is lined with the famous Wild Hazelnut trees of Pangi. We will cross quite a few streams some big some small. About 10-15kms before the pass we come to some make shift tea stall, this place is known as Bagotu; we will stop here for some hot Chai and snacks. This place is quite amazing, as you get closer to Bagotu you come face on with a wall of mountain- it looks something out of ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
As we get closer to the pass the terrain gets rockier and rockier. At the very top is a small temple dedicated to ‘Jog Wali Mata’. As we come around the pass the valley suddenly just opens up and we can enjoy the full landscape of Chamba valley. We stop at Satrundi do get our ID’s checked and then we ride non- stop to Chamba.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Camp

Day 8:Chamba to Dharamsala, 128kms

After breakfast we will visit the Lakshmi Narayan temples and then start our journey for Dharamshala. We will take the scenic route taking us through Khajjiar and Dalhousie. Khajjiar is about 20kms from Chamba, it is famous as Mini Switzerland of India. We will stop here for lunch and then move forward to our destination. We have 24kms of uphill to get to Dalhousie and after this the entire journey is downhill followed by never ending flats. We will reach Dharamshala in the evening.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Hotel

Day 9:Dharamsala

After a leisurely breakfast we will go for a sight-seeing tour of Dharamshala. Dharamsala is the centre of the Tibetan exile world in India. The Presence of the 14th Dalai Lama and the Tibetan population has made Dharamshala a popular destination for Indian and Foreign tourists, including students studying Tibet. We will visit the monastery of H.H. The Dalai Lama and then go to Norbulingka Institute. If you are up for it we can also visit the monastery of the 17th Karmapa.
