Hello everyone,

I need advice on this trek. I am planning to do it along with my wife and 4yr old kid. I intend to hire a horse/pony for my kid so she could hop on whenever she feels tired.

I need to know if there are enough dhabas along this route so that we could camp in these dhabas instead of pitching tents or even carrying them.

I prefer to travel light and I am keen not to carry tents and rations. My guess is till the Dodital from Sangam chatti, should not be a problem. However the stretch from Dodital to Hanuman chatti via Darwa Pass could have no dhabas route. And thats my fear. Therefore should I carry tents & rations?

I would love to hear from anyone who has been there. We have scheduled to start this trek on 30th June this month.

Thanks and regards
Mohan

Mohan,

I hope your trek was a success. I am also planning to trek the same trail this June 2011. Tell me your experiences.

Looks like Mohan hasn't been here for a couple of years, so you might not get a reply. There are, however, many threads on Dodital and a few that go from Sangam Chatti to Hanuman Chatti. So, search for Dodital and you might get all the information you need.

Dear friend,

I am planning to descend from Darva pass to Janki chatti. Is it a safe route? Are there river crossing bridges on this trail?

Kamlik,

Thanks for your suggestion. I am planning to descend from the Darva pass to Janki Chatti. Is it possible? No one has yet mentioned about this trail, however, since J Chatti has recently got developed and linked by a motorable route, this may be possible. Do you know anything?

Sorry, I am not familiar with the trek beyond Darwa pass. You will likely want a guide for that part. It is likely that you may want/need to go through Hanuman Chatti. See link
