    Day 1 - DELHI TO MANALI 

    Report at New Delhi near Majnu Ka Tila by 5:00 pm and leave for Manali via Volvo Bus. Overnight bus Journey.

    Day 2 - MANALI

    Reach Base camp and have breakfast. Post lunch briefing about the program followed by acclimatization trek. Overnight at Base Camp.


    After a short drive to Sethan Village, we start our trek towards Camp 1 Chikka (3100 Mts). The steepest part of the trail earlier used to take about 2 - 3 hours to negotiate. Now, however, there is a road, which goes up to the Jobri Nala, where the newly created AD hydroelectricity project is located. It passes through apple orchards and forests of blue pine, cedar, oak, fir and chestnut. The trek starts from Jobri Nala and continues to the beautiful campsite at Chhika. Overnight stay at the campsite.


    The trek passes through some spectacular landscape just below the Hampta Pass, on a grassy bank sloping down from the cliffs next to a mountain stream. The impressive grandeur of immediate surroundings, the nearness of the Tokru-Shakru peaks, the wonderful coloring of the rocks and mountainside, all make this one of the best campsites on the route. It also has the river, Alain Nullah, which has its snout in the Hampta Pass. The trail now begins to ascend towards Hampta Pass and reaches ‘Bhalu Ka Ghera’, which in the local dialect means ‘Bears den.’ Himalayan Brown Bear sightings can happen here, if one is exceptionally lucky. Overnight stay at the campsite.

    Day 5 - Balu ka Ghera to Hampta Pass to Shela Ghoru

    From here a steep ascent takes one up to the Hampta Jot (Jot means ‘Pass,’ in the local dialect). From this lofty pass, which has traditionally been used by shepherds to cross over to the Lahaul valley from the Kullu valley, a majestic panorama of mountain peaks opens up. One can have close views of the Deo Tibba and Indrasan peaks from the pass. Also visible from here, is a vast swathe of the rugged peaks of Lahaul rising tier upon tier. After spending some time at the pass, a steep descend brings one to the campsite at Shela Ghoru, considered to be one of the coldest places on the route. Overnight stay at the campsite.


    After breakfast, it is a leisurely trek down to the road-head at Chhatru, in the Chandra valley. A stream crossing is involved during this descent. Chhatru is a small settlement located on the banks of the roaring Chandra river and is populated by a few tented Dhabas, which usually supply refreshments and lodging to travelers from Manali to Spiti. Overnight stay at camp.


    After an early breakfast, we drive along the bank of Chandra river to reach Chandertaal (43 KM) via Batal. After spending some time at the lake, we will drive back the same way to Manali via Atal Tunnel and then to Naggar. Overnight stay at Hotel/Campsite.
