Duration : 07 Days
Region : Manali
Season : Mid June to September
The first day of the trek goes through cool forests of giant deodar (cedar), alder and oak. The trail climbs gently at first through the Manalsu valley along the Manalsu torrent. Extensive views of the Kullu Valley appear and slowly fade into the distance as the degree of the gradient decreases; the gentle slope of the first campsite in the lush green meadows of Lamadugh is reached. From here beautiful views of the surrounding peaks open up.
The trail now begins to ascend steeply through woodland and meadow, with wild alpine flowers strewn all around. On the way brilliant shrubs of Rhododendron and Birch pave the way to the ridge, looking out across spectacular peaks, after which a descent leads to the campsite at Dohra Nallah.
A lovely walk through lush green forests to the campsite at the base of the Kalihani Pass (15,500 feet/4,725 m). The campsite itself is at an elevation of 13,200 feet (4,023 m). The mountain peaks of the Kullu and Lahaul valleys are visible throughout.
The landscape slowly begins to change as forests and meadows give way to rocky outcrops with patches of snow starting to appear. A rather steep climb through glacial debris and snow leads to the top of the pass, from where breathtaking views are available.
The trail now winds through meadows with wild alpine flowers. On the way brilliant shrubs of Rhododendron and Birch pave the way to the ridge, looking out across spectacular peaks, after which we rest at the base of Khan- Pari Tibba (4000mts). One can trek upto the top, later a descent takes you to the Lake of Rani-Sui.
The trail descends sharply through forests of Pine and other Coniferous trees to the meadow at Kala Gorcha.
We walk down on a well defined trail through Shegli and Niyalag villages to Dharsha. Drive to Manali.
What to bring for the trek
Good Warm internal clothing (woolen and fleece, thermals), water proof and wind proof clothing, Comfortable hiking boots with good resistance against the snow and water with a good grip, haversack, sandals, walking sticks, gaiters, woolen/tennis socks (quite a few pairs) and stocking, gloves, cap, sunglasses (very important), Sunscreen lotion, day sack, camera and binocular (OPTIONAL), water bottle, torch and batteries, though the water is very clean and pure and we do provide boiled water once you are in trek still in order to be extra careful you can get few chlorine pills as mountain water is supposed to be hard.
What we provide during the trek
Accommodation in two men tent (high altitude alpine tents of good quality), heavy foam pad mattresses, sleeping bags, Breakfast/tea, all meals (good quality food), services of experienced guide, cook, all the camping equipment, utensils and crockery, kitchen cum dining tent, toilet tent, oxygen cylinder and adequate medical kit.
Day temperature in the sun is pleasant but windy but nights are cold. The temp at night and in rain and snow (especially in Sep and Oct) can really go down; sometimes below zero so you have to be well prepared.
That has to be done individually itself.
It is also possible that a route change may become necessary due to weather, inaccessibility through the mountain passes due to heavy snow, condition of the trail and physical fitness of the clients.
