The trail leaves Jagatsukh village, 6Kms south of Manali. Ascending through small shrubby land and verdant meadows the trail enters a heavily forested gorge with streams flowing by. May to September is the best time to trek here as you get to see hundreds of wildflowers all around. Ascending through a once glaciated region the trail is essentially a shepherd's path used by the nomadic Gaddis and Gujjars. A most rewarding trek in its scenic splendor. Village Jagatsukh is very famous for its old temple of Lord Shiva and Sandhya Gayatri of Shikhara style, which are worth a visit and once it was the capital of Kullu King.

Please note that this is an outdoor and adventure trip and to enjoy such trips, one requires being reasonably fit both physically and mentally, along with a previous experience of outdoors. On the other side the trips are carried out in some of the most amazing and extraordinary locations and in very special times such as winter and at the same time they do provide a bit of challenge to our endurance, fitness and our ability to cope with some adverse conditions. Though we will provide the best equipment and manpower, and do our best to leave no stone unturned. But still before taking up this trip we want to make very clear that nothing is certain in trips like this. Such as bad weather and cold and other logistical uncertainties such as power cut and water supply cut etc. Though we will try to do our best to provide water by buckets and lights by solar batteries etc. but still before signing up one should be experienced enough to carry himself or herself in outdoor conditions and well aware of these uncertainties and hence cooperate if any such situation arises due to the reasons beyond human control.
