Trek Type: Moderate to strenuous
The snowcapped ranges of Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar – common factor between beautiful valleys of Kullu and Kangra, is filled with snow bound passes, glaciers, dense coniferous forests, sparkling streams, cascading waterfalls, blue lakes, meadows strewn with amazing variety of wild alpine flowers and unbelievably remote tribal villages. The fauna here ranges from Himalayan Brown Bear to the elusive Musk Deer and includes a spectacular bird life.
Trek starts from famous tourist town of Manali in Kullu valley, and takes you over mighty mountain passes of Kalihani and Thamsar, through ancient, remote and isolated Village of Bara Bhangal inhabited by legendry Himalayan Shepherds (the Gaddhi’s) who lead a nomadic life. In the summer they lead their vast flocks of sheep and goats to the high mountains and return back to their isolated existence in the autumn. The trek ends at Bir Billing, a tiny village with an extensive view of the lush green Kangra Valley, from here we drive to Dharamsala.
