We shall drive about 16 kms to the North-east of Manali through Prini village to Hamta, which is the starting point of the trek. Enroute enjoy the alluring villages with a wide open view of mystic mountains.

We then start our trek towards the inspiriting campsite at Chikka that lies at about 3500m. It is a beautiful 3-4 hrs walk through dense and fragrant alpine forests.

Chikka lies just above the tree line and is a beautiful green alpine meadow.

In the summer months, one will come across several herds of sheep on this route. Immerse into the dazzling beauty of Chikka and call it a day.

Day 2

Today you would trek for barely 5 hrs but the journey is beyond impressive.

Feel the reality of being in the Himalayan region as you catch the first glimpse of the outer Himalayan chain of mountains.

Day 3

​​

A gradual ascent begins after Balu Ka Ghera (bear’s den), known for wild flowers, rocks and caves.

A further trail takes you to the Hamta pass. This is where one gets a fantastic view of Inderkila, DeoTibba (6001m) and Indrasan (6220m), which will promisingly be one hell of an experience.

The views of the snow-capped peaks and glaciers will take your breath away. After crossing the Hampta pass, one enters the Lahaul valley. Then, walk down to the campsite near by the stream.

A cold, yet comfortable night’s sleep awaits you.

Day 4

​​

Break camps early in the morning. This trek is probably the simplest one.

We undertake a 3 hour walk from Shia Gorhu until we approach Chatru. Sip on some steaming hot tea, accompanied by momos at one of the little stalls. From Chatru board taxi for a road journey to Chandratal. Reach Chandratal by late afternoon.

After spending some time at Chandratal return to Chhatru by the evening. Camp in Chatru.


Day 5

After your breakfast today, we bid adieu to these beautiful mountains and descend back to Manali.
