I'm regular to Malana for obvious reasons but this time I decided to do something different I went through village trek and damn this place is absolutely beautiful - the tiny hamlets and the people are equally welcoming and warm. Loved the experience, did something different and felt great.

Malana Village Trek is something that I never even read about. Recently, I saw a FB share from an acquaintance but beautiful and popular Trekking spots in Himachal Pradesh. This trek is near Chandra Khanni Pass. Apart from the beautiful trek, the tribal village of Malana is very gorgeous and rich in culture and heritage. This village is one of the oldest democracy in the world. This trek ends at the Baralacha Pass on the Manali-Leh road. After which we took a bike ride to Leh.
