Trekking in Himachal
Himachal Pradesh is one of the fascinating areas of the
Indian Himalayas. Famous for its breathtaking valleys, hill temple
architecture, handicrafts and hospitable people, Himachal was founded in
1966 with the unification of a number of princely states, combining the
grandeur of royalty, rugged natural beauty and modern tourist
infrastructure. The state covers a total area of 56,019 sq km, most of which
is hilly and mountainous terrain.

For trekkers and mountaineers,
the valleys of Lahaul and Spiti, Kullu and Manali, Kangra and Chamba are the
most exciting in the region. Lahaul and Spiti lie in the north-western
region of the state and comprise of a vast mountain area, much of which is
above the tree line and represents a high altitude desert landscape. Unlike
the rest of Himachal which is predominantly Hindu, the people of Lahaul and
Spiti are mainly Buddhists and a number of interesting monasteries dot the
area. Lahaul has a central mass of high mountains and glaciers with peaks
rising above 5,000 metres. Spiti is separated from Lahaul by a high mountain
rib running north from the main Himalayan range. The two valleys are linked
by the Kunzam pass at an altitude of 4,000 metres. Most treks into the
Lahaul and Spiti valleys originate from Manali. These include a 14 day trek
from Manali to Keylong to Udeypur to the Mt. Menthosa base camp. This is
probably the most rewarding trek in the Lahaul valley and a number of
monasteries can be visited en route. Another popular trek is from the Kullu
Valley to Lahaul. This trek takes 16 days and reaches an altitude of 4,268
metres at the Hamta Pass. This route presents a magnificient contrast in
landscapes and gives the trekker a chance to view the glaciated lake at
Chandratal and the mountain peaks of Deo Tibba (6,001 m) and Indrasan (6,221
Manali, at an altitude of 1,830 metres, lies in the upper
Kullu Valley on the banks of the river Beas. Some of the popular treks from
Manali include a 7-day trek into the Malana Valley which overlooks the Deo
Tibba mountain peak. Malana has a population of just about 500 people who
speak a peculiar dialect with a strong Tibetan accent. The 11 day trek from
Manali to Chandratal is one of the finest in Himachal. This trek passes
through high mountain passes like the Hamta and Baralacha la Pass. The
Solang Valley trek takes just seven days to complete and takes the trekker
to Beas Kund, the source of the river Beas.
Kullu, a small
township at 1,200 metres is 42 km before Manali on the main Manali highway.
Located on the western bank of the Beas river, the most popular trek from
here is to Kulga. This trek can be covered in 3 to 6 days.
is often described as the 'Valley of Delight Protected by the Dhauladhar
range of mountains in the North, Kangra is on the banks of the 14 river Beas
and is characterised by lush green meadows interspersed by a network of
mountain streams. Some of the popular treks from this valley include a l0
day walk from Baijnath to Chamba and Manali. Besides alpine pastures and
high altitude lakes, this trek also passes through areas famous for
Himachal's temple architecture. Trekkers can also follow trails from Chamba
to Dharamshala, Palampur and Baijnath and over the Dhauladhars to Bara
Bhangal in Chamba.
A historic temple town, Chamba was the capital
of the rajas of Chamba from the 8th century. The township is perched on the
top of a cliff overlooking the river Ravi and is surrounded by dense forests
inhabited by a variety of wildlife. Part of the Dhauladhar range of
mountains, Chamba offers a number of interesting excursions and treks. Short
treks from Chamba are to Saroi (8 km), Bandal (24 km) and Chhatari (40 km).
Longer trekking routes will take the trekker from Chamba to Udeypur via
Tissa, Bindrabani and Purthi. This 12-day trek covers approximately 233 km
and includes Kishtwar in Jammu and Kashmir, the Zanskar Valley in Ladakh and
finally Lahaul and Spiti. One can also trek from Chamba to Manali either the
Kalicho or the Kugti Pass. The tormer trek starts at Bharmaur, an ancient
Hindu capital and passes through beautiful meadows and glades to the
Dzoharang Springs. This trek takes 10 days of difficult walking. The second
trek to Manali can be accomplished in 12-days and passes through lush deodar
forests to the Kugti Pass and then to Shanshu, famous with botanists for
varied plant life.
The trek also crosses parts of the Lahaul Valley and
the famous Rohtang Pass near Manali.
The majestic snow capped Dhauladhar range forms a
natural protection for the rich and beautiful Kangra valley. Dharamshala was
the capital of the Kangra, Kullu and Lahaul valleys under the British rule.
Today, McLeod Gunj, a part of Dharamshala, is the home of the Dalai Lama,
the spiritual Tibetan leader. The town, influenced both by the British and
the Tibetans, is a curious mix of colonial architecture and Tibetan culture.
The first stage of the Dhauladhar trek will take the trekker from the spur
of the range densely forested with deodar and pine trees, and lush tea
estates to Triundi some 5,500 metres above, for a breathtaking view of the
snow peaks. From there it is a short trek to Lakagot at the foot of the
Indrahar pass (5,660 metres) on the Dhauladhar range. This trek combines
natural beauty, culture and history. It runs through the ancient capital of
Bharmaur to the temple city of Cl;1amba and then to Khajjiar, a saucer
