Itinerary

  • Day 1 -

    Manali (2000M) – Jobra (2707M) – Chikha (3000M)

    Reach Manali and stay in a hotel and enjoy the day. There will be a short briefing in the evening by trek leader and team on the previous day of the start of the trek.

    Get a drive from Manali to Jobra which takes 45-minutes. Since Jobra is at a height of 2707 M, at times, some of the beginners might experience mountain sickness.

    Necessary precautions and medication prior to travel could also be advised for beginners.

    Also, keeping oneself well hydrated is advised.

    Jobra is lined by woody trails of maple, oak and deodar trees. A great view of the Rani Nallah flowing through the lush green meadows is a welcome sight to the trekkers here.

    From Jobra, the team begins the trek to reach Chikha, which takes about 2 hours.

    Chikha is known to be surrounded by glorious grasslands.

    This is where the trek team camps on the first day of the trek.

  • Day 2 -

    Chikha- Bhalu Ka Ghera (3600 m)

    After breakfast, commence the trek to Bhalu ka Ghera which will take around 4-5 hours.

    This is perhaps the most challenging and exciting day of the trek.

    It takes about 3 to 4 hours to reach Chatru from Shea Gahru.

    Chatru is a confluence point of paths from Rohtang Pass, Hampta Pass, and Lahaul and Spiti.

    At Chatru, the route takes a deviation to Chandrataal Lake.

    After trekking for 2 to 3 hours via Rohtang, you will reach the Chandrataal Lake that offers an awesome view.

    Camp near the lake and enjoy the mesmerising view of the surrounding.
