Manali is the launching point of this trek. One goes through lush green forests of Pine, Fir, Oak and Cedar. Crosses meadows laden with wild flowers often crossing brilliant streams. This trek also provides the opportunity to catch glimpses of magnificent old Himalayan villages, its people and their way of life. This trek starts right from Prini (a village around 6 KM from the main town of Manali). Trek provides dazzling landscapes. And one can have splendid panoramic view of many snow capped high mountains, such as Indrasan (6220 Mts.), Inderkilla (6000 Mts.), Deo-Tibba (6001Mts.). Towards Hamta pass (a mountain pass dividing the boundaries of Kullu and Spiti, one can get commanding view as these Ranges of mountains stretch in the front. Trek provides an ample opportunity to explore the glacier and moraine in this part of the Himalaya
The Hampta Pass (4270m), is on the true right side of the valley. However, there is an excellent vantage point for viewing the Lahaul Range, which can be reached by diverting from the main trail through the moraine towards the center of the valley. From here, the peaks of Deo Tibba (6001m) and Indrasan (622 1 m) can also be appreciated. The history of climbing these peaks dates back to 1912 when CG Bruce led a British team on the first ascent of Hanuman Tibba. The next ascent, however, was not until 1966. In between, the first ascent Of Deo Tibba was made in 1952 after many attempts, while Indrasan was first climbed in 1962.
The Chandrataal is a jewel of a lake, surrounded by the Glaciers and High Summits; this blue water Lake is also known as The Lake of the Moon. Further through the massive mountains cape we trek to Baralacha La – 4,800 Mts. high motor able Pass between Leh Manali Highway. This Pass creates the boundary between the Middle Himalayas and the Great Himalayas.
