    Detailed Itinerary

    Manali to Sethan

    As part of our “Mountaineerz Safety Protocol’, the guests are requested to join us at our camp in Sethan, Manali. You can either hike to Sethan from Manali or drive. We will make prior arrangements for the guests to be driven to Sethan at a fixed time. Pick-up will be arranged from Prini, 2 km from Manali at 12 pm. Please ensure you are properly geared up for the trek. Any last-minute shopping can be done from Manali before assembling in Prini. From here we’ll drive 45 minutes to Sethan. Unwind and refresh yourself at this beautiful campsite nestled in a Deodhar forest at an altitude of 9200 feet. Acclimatize and explore surroundings. Guests will then meet the team and staff in order to get comfortable with them and to clarify any doubts. The guides and team leads will share the Dos and Don’ts of the trek. Enjoy some delicious dinner around a bonfire with the group and retire early in luxury Swiss tents.

    Sethan – Jobri - Chikka – Bhalu ka Ghera (3530m) (6-7 Hours)

    After an early light breakfast by 6 am, we will drive 15 minutes to start the trek from Jobri. The trail alternates between thick forests and open grounds to Chikka. The trek crosses many glacial streams over improvised wooden bridges. Beautiful forested peaks are visible from Chikka after 3 or 4 hrs of scrambling. From here, we will get an excellent view of Deo Tibba and Indrasan group of peaks. When we arrive at Chikka, we will break for breakfast and head on to Juara on the way to Bhalu ka Ghera. The trail continues to the alpine meadows which are full of interesting flora, crossing streams at Juara, glacial features of the surrounding mountains can be seen along the way. We will have lunch in Juara. Bhalu ka Ghera, also known as the Bear’s Circle, is the place where brown bears are said to hibernate during winters and during the right time of the year, several species of wild flowers can be seen. It is a beautiful camping spot and we will camp here for the night.

    Bhalu Ka Ghera – Hampta Pass (4270 m) – Bhalu Ka Ghera (7-8 hours)

    Today is when you feel the trek the most, it’s going to be a long day. We start early (at around 6 am) and trek for 4-5 hours before we reach Hampta Pass. Today is also the day you’ll use your cameras the most, keep extra battery in handy. The final ridge during the trek is a little steep ascent. When snow-bound you will have to cut steps in the ice and be very sure footed. All this hard is rewarding, views from here are breathtaking.

    The peaks in Lahaul, particularly in the Kulti valley and of the Chandrabhaga group, are seen as a huge cluster, with peak of Mulkila IV raising its head above them. From top of the pass you can see the majestic Mt. Deo Tibba (6001m), Indrasan (6221m) and the mighty Greater Himalayan and Pir Panjal Range.
