    Base camp - Pin Parvati Pass 5319m -Kullu Base camp 4500m (6hrs) Slow and steady, we will climb steeply to cross the Pin Parvati pass in one day. Walking on packed snow and ice, everyone will be roped together as the crevasses may not be easily visible.

  • Day 5:

    Kullu Base camp - Mantalaie Lake 4074m (6hrs) Walking over glacier and loose scree, these slopes can be challenging but hugely rewarding when we reach the grassy shores of Mantalaie Lake.

    Mantalaie Lake - Pandu Pul 3700m (5hrs) Trekking downhill from Mantalaie Lake through flowery meadows.

  • Day 7:

    Pandu Pul -Thakurkuan 3400m (5hrs) Pandu Pul means bridge in the local dialect, the name derives from the unique rock bridges found on this leg of the journey.

  • Day 8:

    Thakurkuan -Thunda Bhuz 3200m (5hrs) This is a challenging part of the trek due to the steep and difficult terrain leaving Thakurkuan. The area is part of the wild life sanctuary and one may encounter Himalayan brown bears or even snow leopard on the higher slopes.

  • Day 9:

    Thunda Bhuz - Khir Ganga 2850m (5hrs) The route now takes us into heavily wooded slopes covered in dense pine and birch forests. The local word for birch is bhuz. Camp in a lush green campsite near a spring. Khir Ganga is a holy place with a hot water spring and a small temple to Lord Shiva. You will welcome the chance for a hot bath after 9 days of trekking!

  • Day 10:

    Khir Ganga - Kalga 2850m (4hrs) The trek becomes a pleasant walk as we near our destination and go deeper into the wooded slopes of Kullu.
