  • Day 1 - MANALI (2000M) - JOBRA (2707M) - CHIKHA (3000M) (DRIVE / 45 MINS) ( TREK / 2 HRS)

    In the morning, get a drive to the dam site at Jobra and from here walk through a very pleasant landscape.

    The walk initially will take you through a the dense forests of pines, spruce, deodar, chestnut and maple trees.

    Later, come across a splendid meadow and you will have to cross the river as well.

    Continue to climb to a beautiful meadow called Chikha along a side stream.

    Enjoy a gentle hike that will take around 2 hours to complete.

    After taking rest for some time, continue to walk up a short distance to a nearby waterfall which also plays host to a number of white capped redstarts.

    Stay overnight in tents.

  • Day 2 - CHIKHA (3000M) - BALU - KA - GHEERA (3600M) (TREK / 4 - 5 HRS)

    In the morning, cross the steam immediately after the campsite and proceed to a height and move towards a gorge section.

    Walk through the tough boulder sections, beautiful meadows enhanced by the wildflowers, witness a waterfall and watch a side river that passes so peacefully.

    Reach the campsite at Balu ka Ghera.

    Around 4 hour long hike will be breathtaking but if you take proper breaks in between, then you will not feel so tired.

    Stay overnight in tents.

  • Day 3 - BALU - KA - GHEERA (3600M) - HAMPTA PASS (4270M) - SHEA GAHRU (3700M) (TREK / 6 - 7 HRS)

    Depending on the weather conditions, your day will be altered. But depart from the campsite early morning around 05:00 and 06:00 am.

    Start with a steep climb on the scree slopes and reach a ridge. From there continue to climb toward another ridge that leads to Hampta Pass.

    After climbing around 4-5 hours, you will come to see the mind blowing scenery and views around.

    Indrasan and Deotibba peaks are the highlights. After spending some time at the top, have lunch.

    Descend afterwards to the campsite for the night, Shea Gahru, located so beautifully amidst the mountains.

    After 2-3 hours of walk you will reach the campsite.

    Stay overnight in the tents.

  • Day 4 - SHEA GAHRU (3700M) - CHATRU (3300M) - CHANDRATAL (4250M) (TREK / 3 - 4 HRS) (DRIVE / 2 - 2.5 HRS)

    Start so early today around 05:00 am in order to hike downhill through some tricky sections and river crossings.

    Proceed along a long scree and boulder section that overlooks the road leading to Spiti.

    Finish the hike at Chatru. Later board a vehicle to travel to Chandratal.

    2 to 2.5 hours of drive will take you to the location.

    Stay overnight there.

    Please note an early start on this day will give you a better chance of reaching Chandratal as there are lots of side stream crossings. Sometimes there is a possibility that the road to Chandratal is not open. In this case you can camp at Chatru and get indulged in various adventurous activities such as Bridge slithering, Bouldering and Rappelling.

  • Day 5 - CHANDRATAL (4300M) - MANALI (2000M) (DRIVE / 5 - 6 HRS)
