Region: Kullu – Manali, Malana Valley, Parvati Valley
Season: Mid June to End of September
Duration: 05 days
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 Cedar, 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 Chanderkhani pass (3660 Mts.), offers spectacular panoramas of peaks, whole Kullu Valley and glaciers appear. Trek to the other side of the Pass, in the Malana Valley, along the Malana River offers incredible views of the valley, high snow peaks and Malana Glacier. This whole region is a typical Himalayan Alpine Zone as high summits surrounds the valley.
Today after breakfast we start our trek, by driving one hour to Rumsu village by visiting famous Naggar.
Naggar, an old ancient capital of Kullu Valley, during the period of King Sidh Singh in 1550AD, is located in the middle of the Valley, which is later shifted to Kullu. Nagger Castle still lies above the Naggar Village from here one can get magnificent panorama of the Kullu Valley, to the North lies the Rohtang pass and Bajaura to the South of The Valley.

This Village is an excellent example of traditional Pahari (mountain) Village with its wooden houses and traditional people. Today we camp bit ahead of the Rumsu Village in the middle of the alpine meadow at the base of the Chanderkhani Pass (3660 Mts.). From here we get tremendous view of the Dhauladhar Range of the mountains to the West, Pir Panjal Ranges to the North – West and Lahaul Ranges to the North and North East. After visiting these beautiful places we start our trek which takes 3-4 hours to reach our first campsite Ghaun Karadi. O/N in camp.
