Day 1: Manali to Rola Kholi (3800m) - (5 hrs)

We drive from Manali (Starting Point) to Gulaba (Base Camp) while enjoying the panoramic views of Solang, Palchan & Kothi. Once a quiet hamlet, Gulaba is now buzzing with tourists in transit to Rohtang Pass. 

The trek from Gulaba starts from the 14th scissor bend, passing through some beautiful rivulets flowing along, soon thereafter the trail enters a ranging open meadow, which is towered by Mt. Hanuman Tibba. After a while a milky white rivulet flowing down, called Kolang

Nallah greets you. As you climb up pause to enjoy brilliant views of Manali and Solang Valley. Rola Kohli being at the base of Bhrigu Lake is blessed with picture perfect surrounding, we halt for the night here, while you enjoy a sumptuous dinner and a sound sleep in your cozy tents.

Day 2: Rola Kholi - Bhrigu Lake - Pandu Ropa (3,830mts) - (8 Hrs)

After an early morning breakfast, we begin our ascent to Bhrigu Lake. On the way we cross a mountain stream and a mountain ridge, beyond which lies the Bhrigu Lake. Once we reach the lake, catch a breath and enjoy a stunning panoramic view of Pir Pinjal and Dhauladhar ranges also, major peaks such as Indrasen, DeoTibba and Hanuman Tibba stand majestically before you.

After spending a while at the lake we head down to Pandu Ropa here we climb a ridge to get down onto the other side. The meadow walk is refreshing all the way to rice fields of Pandu Ropa. Pandu Ropa is an old Kullu village where it is believed that Pandavas cultivated rice on their way to Himalaya. We pitch our tents in these sacred fields where you enjoy a night under the gaze of stars while sipping a cup of hot tea.

Day 3: Pandu Ropa - Vashisht (3,000m) - (5hours)

After a heavy breakfast we descend through the forest ridge of Pandu Ropa. The trek today is easy with many steep downhill sections. Once we exit the forest ridge, you are greeted by the grand view of Kullu Valley. 

After this we take the village trail all the way to Vashisht. The trek ends at Vashisht, from there we drive down to Manali, where we bid our farewells with nostalgia in our heart, while carving for more of Himachal.
