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

There's no mobile coverage in the entire area. They probably can't call you till they get to Hanumanchatti. When are they supposed to reach there? Are they well beyond their schedule? If not, don't worry just yet.
