Day 1: Patlikuhal to Mahili

Arrive at Patlikuhal (about 16 kms before Manali) around morning time. For today you can have your breakfast at any of the nearby Dhabas. After that we will board a vehicle to go till the last village Shangchar. Once everyone’s ready we will set out to engage in the first round of trekking today.
After 4-5 hours of trekking, we will reach Mahili, a grazing meadow at a height of about 9800 feet. Cross the steep trekking route that go through the thickets covered by Deodar and Pine trees. Overnight stay at Mahili.

Day 2 : Mahili - Saurkundi - Mahili

After breakfast in the morning, get ready to trek to Saurkundi lake. Saurkundi lake is believed to be dedicated to Maharishi Shandilya. Locals have a belief that it is sacred to take a dip in the water of this lake. Saurkundi offers an unforgettable 360 degree views of the prototypical nature, untamed by humans. Towards the west, there is Kalihani Pass 16000 feet and in the east, there’s Mt. Indrasan at 6221 meters and Mt. Deo Tibba at 6001 meters. The whole beauty of the Dhauladhar range and Pir Panjal range would be visible from the lakeside pass and it would be more than enough to make your heart remain stolen. Depending upon the snow conditions we’ll either camp nearby overnight or descend back to Basecamp Mahili.

Day 3 : Saurkundi/Mahili to Patlikuhal

After your breakfast today, we bid adieu to these beautiful mountains and descend back till Shangchar village. From there we’ll drive you down till Patlikuhal and you can catch your evening bus back to Delhi/Chandigarh.
