Hello folks!

Would like to ask some questions about treks in Himachal Pradesh, hoping not to bother you a lot

Sorry for my noobness... if some..

1) Would like to know any information about Chandrkhani trek: Naggar - Chandrkhani - Malana - Rasol - Kasol



2) Would like to know any information about Kasol - Manihar - Garsha trek.

3) Eager to know any other 1-3-4 days treks for noobs in Himachal.

Planning to spend barely a month in Himachal starting in the end of April to watch wonderful Himalayan spring.

Thanks for any response.
Peace!

Beas Kund - 2 days and Hamta Pass - 4/5 days (but this one opens in May, you could do close to the pass and back though).

May should be fine as Rohtang pass opens before May end. April may be okay for Beas Kund but you may not be able to follow the standard itinirary for Hamta Pass - but you can still do an amended route.

Chandrakhani pass with Rasol is a 3 days trek. But due to heavy snowfall this year, you will have to wait for May.

Is tent required or it's possible to find night accommodation in villages?

Tent is required as there is no village near Chandrakhani pass on Naggar side. There are caves near pass, so with a sleeping bag, night may be passed. Second night at Rasol village.

May would be an ideal time for taking over Chandrakhani pass, it has some really splendid views of the parbati catchment. The 2nd trek you have mentioned is quite interesting, i have heard about this strtch before but never seen any pics or information on it in manali and parbati area.

You could also try rashol pass after completing the chandrakhani or head into the malana nallah towards animals pass. The latter is an undocumented territory but the malana villagers will help you out with orientation i guess.



@Neeraj > did you complete your chandrakhani pass trek after all ?

http://www.himalayanclub.org/hc/wp-c...ads/280047.jpg
from this report http://www.himalayanclub.org/journal/papsura-climbed/

Manikaran : Situated at a distance of 45 kms from Kullu, Manikaran is known for its hot springs and its gurudwara. Manikaran also make an ideal base for trekking expeditions, glacier crossings, Pin Pass to Spiti, Manikaran to Saraumga Pass to Chhota Dhara, Manikaran to Malana Valley via the Animal Pass and Manikaran or Kasol or Jari to Naggar through Malana and Chandrakhani Pass.
from http://www.vacationsindia.com/himach...esh/kullu.html
so i guess it's possible to get through Animal Pass to Manikaran...

Hi Kri, According to what i know, the Malana nallah will take you the the malana glacier. And from here On the South an Unnamed pass about 5300 Meters high between the Manikaran Towers(2 peaks) will take you to the Manikaran (Brahmganga)Nallah.. But from Malana Nallah Further up to a Malana glacier one gets to a bigger glacier which is called 'Dudhon' according to maps..The Animals pass is located here, it will lead you into the Tosh Nallah in the tosh glacier. You have to browse google earth and keep following the malana nallah... then a permanent glacier, then the Undocumented Animals pass which will bring you to another nallah called tosh.. this tosh nalah meets the main parbati river at barsheni (The road ends here on the map).

In your post #9 you could actually see what i am referring to here on the map. !

Lucid, thank you for clearing the issue. Area around Tosh is wonderful (i was there last time), but i afraid that we are not of that kind of experienced trekkers to go there through glaciers
Anyway thank you for information.
After Chandrkhani trek i guess we will take a foot trip to Khirganga.

I'll update this thread sharing my dreams and plans. Hope, you guys will help me to find the right point

and here is a nice view from Tosh village:

so here is my next question


Beas Kund (blue mark on the map). Am i right thinking that it's possible to find accommodation in Dhundi?

According to trek descriptions on tour-agencies pages there are some tent-overnights required...
http://www.stikage.com/tour_beas.htm

Guess there is a magnificent view of Hanuman Tibba!



Is it possible to rent a tent and how much it approximately costs in Manali?
