Day wise Details and Description

Day 1: Manali to Barahazar (18 km) (1.5 hours)

The transportation from Manali to Balthazar will be organised. That is where the Gwaru Pass trip begins. Despite the high roads, the trip is comfortable.

Day 2: Barahazaar to Chikka (2.5 km) (3 hours)

Start your hike from the Dhuongon River's left bank. To get to a bridge over the Dhuongon River, pass through some rainforest, over some grasslands, and over some rocky terrain. Go across it and along the roiling river's right bank. Wander once again through fields and up steep peaks. Follow the trail to Chikka as you enter the Silver Birch woodland. In about three hours, gradually ascend to your campsite. Chikka is situated at the base of a mountain chain. Find some dwellings and the Takshak Nag and Shiva temples. The artwork is astoundingly gorgeous; a snake is carved into the surface of the stone.

Day 3: Chikka to Seri (7 km) (6 hours)

Start the hike from Chikka to Seri, then spend the next two hours slowly ascending along the banks of the river. Go along rocky paths and grassy areas. On the way, stop at the Ocheri campground and rest for a while. Before setting off for paradise, the Pandavas are said to have had a nap there. The terrain becomes difficult now as you cross the incline from Ocheri to Chorgan. Another campground can be found nearby, 2.2 kilometres from Ocheri. The segment from Chorgan to Seri is one mile long and opens up after a strenuous climb. The scenery is beautiful because it provides awe-inspiring views of Norbu, Bansi Peak, and Deo Tibba. Get a glimpse of the Dhuongon River coming down from Tentu Pass; it resembles a waterfall.

Day 4: Seri to Chandratal and back (12 km) (7 hours)

Following a sumptuous breakfast, the Seri to Chandratal trek begins. It is a stunning lake with a crescent form that is renowned for its abrupt changes. The first part of the walk involves a difficult ascent to Tentu Pass, followed by an hour and a half of ascending through grasslands. Enjoy breathtaking views of the tributary of the Dhuongon River. Now cross the river to get to Deo Tibba's Advance Base Camp.

Day 5: Seri to Gwaru Thach (2.8 km) (3 hours)

Seri to Gwaru Thach is a short hike today. Trek along the river's edge while continuing to follow the Gwaru Nala. Today, traverse a variety of terrain, including snow, boulder fields, and meadows. Thach investigates the campground, which is surrounded by vibrant wildflowers and high mountains, after making the ascent to Gwaru. Enjoy stunning views of Bansi, Norbu, Deo Tibba Peak, Gwaru Pass, and Gwaru Top.

Day 6: Gwaru Thach to Bareh via Gwaru Pass

The hike today will be difficult, so get a head start on the day. To get to the base of Gwaru Thach, you must ascend a steep slope and pass a moraine area. The best portion for adventure seekers is up ahead when you pass across ridgelines, moraines, and the icy section. To go to Gwaru Pass, reverse your heading and head south. See stunning views of the Norbu, Bansi, Alirati Tibba, Deo Tibba, and KR range from the Gwaru Pass. Once you've taken in the magnificent sight of these lofty summits, head south by following Malana Nala. To get to the lake, cross the area of boulders. After you descend after three hours and see several shepherd cottages, you have reached Bareh. The Gerwa Kothi peak, often known as the place of God, may be seen from here.

You will reach the Bukhare campground, where there are some shepherd's cottages and a temple, after descending for two kilometres. Ringer Rather is a different campground that is located a kilometre distant. From here, cross a brook to reach the area of dense forest. Within the next three hours, you will arrive at the Malana settlement if you keep walking. This community is also known as "Little Greek" since it is thought that the residents are descended from the Greek Army. Stay in this hotel today.
