Itinerary

Day 1:Manali – Lama Dugh (3017m) 4 hrs walk

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.

Day 2:Lama Dugh – Riyali Thach (3400m) 4- 5 hrs walk

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.

Day 3:Riyali Thach – Base of Kalihani Pass (4010m)

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.

Day 4:Base of Kalihani –top of Kalihani Pass (4725m) – Back to Riyali thach.

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.

Day 5:Riyali Thach – RaniSui Lake (5-6 hrs)

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.

Day 6:Ranisui Lake to Kala Gorcha /Shegli (3000 mts) 5 hrs:

The trail descends sharply through forests of Pine and other Coniferous trees to the meadow at Kala Gorcha.

Day 7: Kala Gorcha – Dharsha Village (2 hrs) trek, then drive to Manali (about 2hrs)

We walk down on a well defined trail through Shegli and Niyalag villages to Dharsha. Drive to Manali.

Climate
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.

Travel insurance
That has to be done individually itself.

Note
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.
