Report at the Base Camp, Manali before 10:00AM. After registration and wholesome breakfast, we will transfer you to Jobra– the last road head for the trek after crossing river beas by Jeep/Car. The vehicle from Manali after passing the Prini village takes you up through 42 hairpin bends and drops you off at Jobra. You have already gained quite an altitude from Manali and you start your trek at 9800 feet. Cross the road and take the small path into the forest. You will also find other variety of trees like maple, deodar, toss and oak. The sight is refreshing. The slope that is supposed to be climbed is an easy one and not very steep. 20 minutes into the trek, you will reach a bend that overlooks a lush green meadow strewed with small rocks. Enjoy the surrounding for a couple of minutes and head towards the meadow. The Rani nallah/water stream comes into view which flows directly in between the meadow. You will also see few sheep and cows grazing in the field. The sight looks exactly as if taken out from fairy tale. You can pass through the meadow or climb up the hill on the left hand side. Either way you will reach Chika which is at the end of the vast meadow. But, climbing the hill and descending down to Chika is a better and easier route. Chika camp site is a huge and spacious patch of green. The Rani Nallah flowing in the middle makes this place perfect for setting up the tents. Overnight Stay in camps at Chika
