Overview

About the Patalsu Peak Trek:

An astounding peak that reaches up to 4,220m (13,845ft), the Patalsu Peak boasts of its scenic beauty and enchanting appeal. Located within the close proximity of the picturesque Kullu Valley, this soaring peak makes for an ideal trekking destination and is also one of the most sought after trekking destinations in the region.

With moderate to challenging gradients, it entices a large number of trekkers from across the country. Though considered as a difficult one, the trekkers get rewarded with promising views and an amazing experience on completing this trek.


About the destination:

Nestled at the head of the beautiful Kullu valley in Himachal Pradesh, Patalsu Peak climbs up to staggering heights of 4,220 meters to offer unmatched views of the surrounding Himalayan canvas. It is one of the most widely sought after treks in Himachal Pradesh. Though moderately challenging, the Patalsu Peak trek is ideal for very fit beginners. The trek pushes you through some steep inclines, narrow ridges and moraines, sure, but the backdrop of the engulfing snowy peaks make every minute of exertion worth it!

Its moderate level gradients lure herds of trekkers into its snowy folds, with promises of 360-degree views of nature at its best. It also gives you the rush of a summit climb!

The trek starts from the very famous Solang valley, and the trails coil through quaint little hamlets, alpine meadows and beautiful dense forests of oak and pine. It is also not uncommon to spot avian species like Khaleej and morals during the trek. The route to Patalsu Peak is lined with evergreen forests and eventually morphs into a rugged, uneven terrain. Though slightly taxing, the summit is a window to the expansive Himalayan grandeur, with giants like Friendship peak, Manali peaks, and Shitidhar looming up right before you!

The magnificence of the mighty Himalayas lay bare, unveiled for you. Let your senses get lulled into a magical trance, and your soul feel right at peace amidst the wonderland of the Patalsu Peak trek.

    We really enjoyed trekking at Patalsu peak, if you happen to visit Manali this trek should be a thing that you should never miss out for. A few days spent over here will be a great rejuvenation for your mind and soul. The whole peak trek was amazing which I enjoyed totally with my cousins. I read reviews saying that this trek is a difficult one, but I never felt so, everything went out smoothly and as per the plan. Trekking and looking at those snow cladded peaks are something that I can never forget.

    My trekking to this place was above average I should say. We went as a gang of five and I have to say that four of us in our gang were first time trekkers, still all of them were able to cope up with the whole trekking part. We had ample time left for even sightseeing the other places, we roamed and took lot of pictures. I basically liked seeing the whole peak from a very high altitude of 4100km. We actually didn’t plan for this trek, we visited Delhi and my Delhi friend said me about this trek, I immediately took this trek and am totally satisfied.

    Our college team wants to thank the whole team who guided and helped us with this trek. Managing so many students would really be a very great task, but our guides did their job well and helped us in a humble and polite manner. We have a very memorable part to share on this trek. We are looking forward for such a trip once again in our near future. The food was served hot and we enjoyed the camping actually. Never knew that we would get such a reliable and delightful trekking experience.

    The co-ordinators at the first place did their job of arranging this trek so well, we have no complaints at all on this trek. The greatest moment that made me mesmerized was watching the whole peak from the top of the peak. I never felt like this before. I would love to take up this trek time and again with this gang of organizers. Thank you once again guys for offering me such an amazing trekking expreince.

    I never had an experience that touched the ethnic villages, during this trek trail to Patalsu I got a chance to have a great view of some of the great villages like Burwas and shollang. And I have to admit that our travel guide was a very sensible and entertaining man, he guided us well throughout the trip and saw that we were communicated in our local language. The food was served on time and the camp stay was also good. No regrets at all.

    To begin with a trek to Patalsu is the best thing that happened in my trekking career. I have been on plenty of treks before, but nothing lured and excited me like this particular one. There are many things that I would like to share over here, the first that is worthy talking about is the way the trek was executed, it was a splendid job guys, the second thing which I liked the most was that every trek was as per the planned itinerary, the timing and schedule was prompt. Thanks for this trek!

    The best part I liked about trekking at Patalsu trek is the services provided by my tourist agents. I am basically a last minute rusher, and hence I just packed by back pack with essential clothes and pushed off for this trek without even planning well, but to my surprise my trekking never had any hassle as my agents provided me with all the needed things. The whole trek went over smoothly, I recommend such a trek.
