    Detailed Itinerary

    Arrive in Manali – ‘dA Base’ – acclimatization hike to ‘Crystal Falls’ – Himalayan village culture experience – plant trees - option of angling/ziplining

    The participants will deboard the Bus at ‘Patlikuhl’, 14 kms short of New Manali Bus stand. From this pick-up point, the guests will be driven to our Base in Barkha Village, near Manali. After refreshments and breakfast, hike 2 hrs to the ‘Crystal Falls’ near our Himalayan Jungle Lodge in Soil, the oldest village of this valley. Unwind at Himalayan Jungle Retreat located in a massive orchard by the stream on the edge of the forest. After lunch explore the surroundings or go angling if you like. Return back to base in time to chat with the team over bonfire and dinner.

    Haripur, Manali – Solang (2483 m) – Dhundi (2840 m) – Bakarthatch (3270 m) – drive 30 km, trek 10 km (5-6 hrs)

    After breakfast, drive to the Solang valley up to the Dhundi road-link to begin the first leg of the trek. Solang boasts of some of the best skiing slopes of India and is the starting point of many treks in Himachal Pradesh.
    Gradually ascending from the valley for around 8 km, the trail follows river Beas, many times crossing the stream from one side to the other, getting us to Dhundi. The quaint little mountain hamlet that has nothing to offer save scenic beauty and resonating silence, Dhundi is another alpine meadow full of wild flowers.

    The trek further takes us over loosely held boulders and moraines of a dying glacier at places. We continue up to a scenic campsite at the pastures of Bakarthach which is a high-altitude meadow and literally means ‘shepherd’s field’. These enchanting meadows are very popular pastures for the Gaddis – a hardy nomadic tribe of shepherds, and it’s easy to find flocks of sheep grazing peacefully in this pastoral idyll. These sun and wind swept meadows will be a feast for your senses. Set up camp for overnight stay.

    Bakarthach – Beas Kund (3690 m) – Bakarthach – 6 km (3-4 Hrs.)

    An early start to the day and a short climb up the ridge through Bhoj Patra will get us to Beas Kund. Bhoj Patra gets its name from the fact that the area has a lot of Bhoj Patra (birch) trees. We will spend time here at the glacial tarn of Beas Kund – the source of one of the major rivers of north India. The legend is that Sage Vyas, the author of the great epic Mahabharata, meditated here. After a full day of excursion around the Beas Kund plateau, we will come back to Bakarthach in the evening.

    Bakarthach – Solang – 10 km walk (3-4 hrs.) - Explore Manali - Departure

    After breakfast we start our return trek to Solang; we will take the same route through Dhundi. On getting down, we’ll board the vehicle waiting for us which will get us to Manali. End of the trek. From here, one can spend time exploring Manali and Old Manali and later board the bus for Delhi/Chd.

    OPTIONAL: Head back to DA Base – Mountaineerz in Haripur in the evening. Have dinner and spend your night there. Relax at the base camp or go Paragliding, Rafting or Angling (some nice spots near our base) the next day, before we part ways here to meet soon for our next adventure.
