Hi, Yes you can find accommodation in Dhundi, You can rent out tents from New-Manali in the Manu Market...or behind Tibetan Market. Tent Would Cost you 100rs per day as far as i know.

They will take a Security Deposit also which will be refunded when you return the tent.

here is my next question
Khauli Galu Pass (sometimes it also spells like Khuli Galu or Khaligalu or Padri-Khauli)


Can't find any infromation about it except this:
Quote:
Day 1: - Kasol to Grahan (10 Km.)
Day 2: - Grahan to Padhri (8 Km.)
Day 3: - Padhri to Kholi (8 Km.)
Day 4: - Kholi to Dohri Thach (8 Km.)
Day 5: - Dohri Thach to Sheelagarh (7 Km.)
Day 6: - Sheelagarh to Bhuntar, Kasol (40 Km.)
from here

one more poor description of this trek is here

Most of the village names i could not find on the web

Perhaps someone heard about this trek or even has trekked it?

View from the Khauli Galu Pass (Google Earth):



BTW
I've been in Grahan and it was one of the most wonderful walks in my life from Kasol to Grahan and back next morning

@Lucid - I didn't see any acco at Dhundi, except a closed dhaba and a lot of construction works, last acco was Solang, but then Solang to Dhundi is a beautiful road of 7 km so very easy walk. Can you elaborate?

Beas Kund is an easy trek in summers, but you can explore further from there as it is the base camp for mountaineering around, including Hanuman Tibba. While you can see Hanuman Tibba peak but only a small portion, unless you go a bit further. Best is if you camp at Beas Kund and explore a bit.

A link of photos from my trip - I did not camp at Beas Kund but just visited and came back to Bakerthatch.

According to trek descriptions on tour-agencies pages there are some tent-overnights required...

Guess there is a magnificent view of Hanuman Tibba!



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

Hi,

@Rajat > There is was accommodation facility in the village when i went 2 years ago (Homestay Kind OF arrangement)

@kris > that last picture is very beautiful, yes ideally that should be the pass, i think you will get lot of first hand information in kasol in regards to this route.

@Lucid - could you share the details / contact for the homestay, it could be very useful, especially as sometimes there are older folks doing the trek and an overnight halt in between is always a good thing for them. By the way - which way is the village, didn't see it enroute.

rajatsurey, for sure.

so, for the moment there are 2 nooby treks: Beas Kund and Chandrkhani.
Perhaps something more?

Kasol - Manihar - Garsha trek seems to me a little more difficult trek...

nice route just behind Chanderhani pass called horse way. it's a bit longer than original one. however it's more shanti and has no dangerous points.
