Offisapup,

Thanks so much for you patient and detailed reply to all my questions.

Just one more question - what do rooms cost ( a range would do) and does one need to carry a sleeping bag?

thanks again

If you walk in on your own, it costs 350-400 Rs. per person for accommodation and food. In Demul, you'll need to find the village co-ordinator to show you which homestay you'll be staying in because they have a turnbased system there. Demul is also relatively more expensive as you'll pay 500 Rs. per person for full board.

As for the sleeping bag, you don't "need" to carry one as all homestays provide beds and blankets.

So I'm planning at 20 day trip. I've mapped out where I want to go. It looks like this.

Manali - Batal - Chandratal - Kaza - Langza - Kibber - Tashigang - Mudh - Dhankar - Tabo - Nako - Kalpa - Chitkul - Sarahan - Shimla.

My first time doing this & going to be alone. Can anyone suggest in which of these places -

1. Are home stays available?
2. Are all these places walkable? Where would I likely get stuck?
3. Is September a good time to go?

Would really appreciate a reply from someone.

Can anybody post the approximate charges for ecosphere trek? We would prefer a easy to moderate trek as my children would also be accompanying

Is it possible to walk from Kaza to Langza ? I heared that it is nearly 13 kms, Is it too much ascent in a single day?

I did that 16 times as far as I can remember, never any problem. Taking the shortcuts it's much less than 13 kms, it takes 2 or 2 and half hours
