Trip Details

Day 1 – Acclimatise around Manali (2050m)
We will take an easy acclimatization walk around the area today. There will be plenty of time to recover from the journey north and in the evening we will have a meal at the hotel and discuss the days ahead.

Day 2 – Manali to Chikka, jeep 1 hour, trek 4-5 hours (3300m)
After breakfast we drive a short distance to Prini and start the trek. We’ll trek for around 4-5 hours, along a good trail passing through pine forests, and arrive at Chikka, our first camp. The camp is situated in the valley floor at around 3300m.

Day 3 – Chikka to Balu Ghera, 3-4 hours (3700m)
The next morning we head up the valley to Balu Ghera. A steady climb as the altitude becomes noticeable is rewarded with fine views back into the Kullu Valley and towards the peaks above Kullu, some 40kms away. It’s a short day of walking and the rest of the day is yours to explore the valley. But beware – balu means bear in Hindi!
