Itinerary / Tour Plan

Day 1: Pick up and reaching the Basecamp

Getting to the base camp (Diude). From Rohru to Diude the road follows the blue waters of the Pabbar river. In an exquisite journey, the road climbs gracefully along the Pabbar, the scenery changing rapidly. 

Day 2: Diude to Dayara [5 hours]

Today you will have the first trekking experience in the Pabbar Valley. The trail is well defined and broad, so you can guide yourself. Walking through the forest you will soon realize the tree line descending and you will enter into another thick and dense forest of pine and oak tree. The trail here is moist and dark, you will the first connection to the nature, while walking on the brown carpet of leaves strewn over.

After the exit of this forest you will see the landscaped meadows of Dayara. We will pitch in our tents here and have rest overnight. 

Day 3: Dayara to Litham [3 hours]

Begin your day early with some Yoga and a warm Breakfast. Later you can explore the meadows of Dayara. The morning walk over the meadows will give you immense pleasure and peace. The trek will start at 11:00 am and the trail will take you to another dense forest, with gushing streams and wide meadows. The trail traverses across the meadows towards the Gunas Pass. 

Later the trail again dives into another beautiful forest — this time of Silver Birch (Bhoj). The forest is old and the silver birches gnarled with age. Descending gently through the forest leads to your first clear view of Litham.

Across the meadows the trail dips to the Chandranahan stream that you need to cross before throwing down your backpacks at the Litham campsite. There are plenty of brooks running across Litham, choose a flat spot and good views to settle down at our campsite for the day.

Day 4: Litham to Chandranahan Lake and back [5 hours]

The Chandranahan lake is a glacial tarn that is perennially fed by snow flanks of mountains that surround it. It is not a very big lake, but getting to it is an exciting journey and extremely rewarding. Cross the stream that you get over just before the Litham campsite.

The lake is not very big but what it lacks in size, it makes up for it by its setting. Nestled in a bowl like glacial amphitheater, the lake is fed by snow fields all around. Tiny waterfalls that turn into brooks trickle down to the lake from all sides. Lovely arrangements of stone cairns mark the lake.

Spend time taking in the sights of the setting before heading back to Litham the way you came. It is a steep descent from the lake to Litham. You must start early in the morning to be back at Litham at lunch.

Day 5: Litham to Dunda [5 hours]

Dunda at 13,300 feet is a short climb to the pass. The pass is always visible and inspirational. The setting is extraordinary. The Dhauladhar range looms over the trail with the Gunas pass sitting pretty on top of the snowy flanks of the grey mountains. The Pabbar, is a virulent stream descending rapidly here.

The trail is a sharp ascent from here. It continues along the left bank of Pabbar, taking you to the first view of the Buran Ghati. Spend sometime to relax and enjoy the thrill of the trek. Later we will start ot climb Dunda, by the following the trails of shepherds. You will reach the ridge top of Dunda, here the views of the Buran Ghati are clear and you can see the 180 degrees view of the valley.

The camp is in an alpine zone. Snow capped mountains flank the campsite on all sides. Even in late June snow patches are everywhere. If any campsite can give you the beauty of an alpine mountain zone and the thrill of a splendid climb to come, then Dunda would be voted among the best.

Day 6: Dunda to River Camp via Buran Ghati [6 hours]

Out of the Dunda campsite follow the ridge and hop over boulders towards the base of the pass. Buran Ghati at exactly 15,000 ft is a thrilling climb. The drop, covered with snow on the other side is sharp and steep. Without the rope, the descent can be risky even with an ice axe.

Getting down to the first snow field about 100 metres below the pass is your first objective. Thereafter it is a series of descents over smaller ledges that you can slide down! You will descend quickly from now and within a couple of hours you will loose the sights of snow line. You will 3000 feet below the Buran Ghati after this stretch.

The view of the valley in front is green, lush as far as the eye can see. Beyond a long range of mountains tower over the setting. Descend for another hour to get to a stream that needs to be hopped over. Across the stream the first farmers hut appear. This is where you camp for the night.

Day 7: River Camp to Barua Khas Village [4 hours]

The descent to the Barua village is remarkable for the variety in vegetation and diversity. The trail is full of surprising changes in scenery that makes it an absolute delight. It is difficult to find another trek that has so much diversity while descending. We will move to Karcham and will stay here in the guest house. 

Day 8: Karcham to Shimla [7 hours]

We will start the ride after breakfast at 8:00am and will reach Shimla in the afternoon. You would be free to explore the places in the Shimla city and ride to your home safely from here.

Seeking my requirements and providing exactly what I need in just couple of hours helped me save so much time and effort. The booking experience was so easy that I was almost certain that I am going to have a great time on my trek even before starting.I exactly got what I was promised throughout the trek- Starting from the time I got down from the bus at McLeod bus Stand to the time I finished my Trek. The Guide, The On trek assistance, The food, The arrangements- Everything was superfine. I am glad that I chose Travel d’globe for organizing my trek and it was all worth it.

Well i love to travel.n these guys r just like santa.price is affordable n what you get back is memories for a life time.so this is what these guys r doing.

Good team, but all of them are too lenient on late comers….we had a great time, but were late by 4 hours at starting point itself and that resulted in our trek to Triund to start late afternoon instead of morning. Otherwise, very friendly n cooperative team and fun to travel with. Packages are quite competitively priced. All the best, will definitely join TDG for another trip in near future.

Awesome packages and awesome plans. Loved trips with travel d’globe. Also the website helped me plan three of my short trips. A must visit
