Overview

OVERVIEW

The trail of the trek leads you to Dhundi, a tiny village at the far end of Solang Valley, where you will meet one of the tributaries of Beas. After that, you will find your way to Bakar Thach, westwards of Dhundi. Here is when the trek gets more enchanting by every step. The Bakar meadows is also the first camping site on this trek. If you’re traveling in the summers or monsoon, you might be able to see the beautiful sight of animals grazing on green pastures often called as  ‘Shepherd’s Field’.

Hereon, you might experience a steeper climb. On your way, you’ll be able to spot some majestic peaks like Deo Tibba and Indrasan will make you feel like the view probably couldn’t get better, but so it will! When you’re on the Beas Kund Valley, many streams(formed by melted glaciers) coming down from the mountains will delight you with their rumbling fresh water.

Finally, you will lay your eyes on the beauty that is Beas. You’ll cherish the magical aura in the environment where the nature is at its best. Finding a campsite isn’t difficult because any place that you choose will be as amazing as any other place. You could also spend good time there and return to Bakar Thach for overnight camping.

Eat and unwind from a full day of trekking. Relish the climb and take due rest, you truly deserve it. The next day will be followed by making your way down to same Manali you came from.
