Some five of us are going on a trek to Buran/Gunas Ghati and also another subsidiary trek crossing the Kamba Khango via the Wangar Valley (Pin Bhaba Pass to Kafnu route) ...

Many THANKS to Uttam for his detailed route-tips online (on his blog) and personally over phone, we will attempt Gunas Ghati which is different from the Buran Ghati trek only for the last two days...

For the Kamba Khango crossing, I could not find any online or offline resource, hopefully we will get a local shepherd along as a guide...

Here is the proposed trek itinerary:


Sun Sep 14 Day 03 Catch earliest bus/jeep to Shimla/Hatkoti/Rohru (HP) (8 to 10 hrs), Rest at Hatkoti/Rohru

Mon Sep 15 Day 04 Depart after breakfast 9:00, jeep to Tangnu-- reach Tangnu 11:00. Walk to Janglikh 90 mins away

TREK STARTS

Mon ... 15 Trk day 01 Tangnu (2655m) to Janglikh (2850m) Janglikh is the last big village on the R. Pabbar Spend an hour at Janglikh for the cultural sights and experience. Walk 1 hr ahead to Chharang Chhu

Tue ... 16 Trk day 02 Chharang chhu (2950m) to Dayara (3200m) via Shalagin, Simbar [5 hrs]

Wed ... 17 Trk day 03 Dayara (3200m) to Litham (3600m) [6 hrs]. Litham is the last big meadow on this route

Thu ... 18 Trk day 04 REST DAY (acclimatization) Litham (3600m) to Chandranahan holy lake (3850m) and back

Fri ... 19 Trk day 05 Litham (3600m) to Khubraini (4000m) [5 hrs]

Sat ... 20 Trk day 06 Khubraini (4000m) to Gunas Ghati (4774m, 15659ft) to Sangla Kanda (3600m) [10 hrs]

Sun ... 21 Trk day 07 Sangla Kanda (3600m) to Sangla (2670m) [4 hrs] and jeep to Kafnu (2350)

Mon ... 22 Trk day 08 Kafnu (2350m) to Mulling (3350m)

Tue ... 23 Trk day 09 Mulling (3350m) to Moorang (4100m)

Wed ... 24 Trk day 10 Moorang (4100m) to Kamba Khango (4785m) to Dumti (2700m)

Thu ... 25 Trk day 12 Dumti (2700m) to Nigulsari to Roadhead

TREK ENDS

Fri ... 26 Travel to Shimla, Night bus Shimla to Delhi

Sat 27 Sept Reach Delhi early morning...

I would be happy if Uttam gave his tips on the route, especially the part which separates from his recent (July 2008) Buran Ghati Route
.
.

I have made the original schedule in a neater tabular version in PDF format attached here. Only thing it is for Buran Ghati, so two three days (Litham onwards) will differ in the trek-table.

KS bluechip is in, so expect very many pictures and extensive blogging

All the best to us all

The trek is so tempting especially after viewing Uttam's pictures. The trek is off-beat. The schedule is perfect and more importantly, the timing is good.

Alas! I can't join you as indicated earlier .

I may have to satisfy with a virtual trek to Buran Ghati through KS's pictorial blog .

My best wishes to all of you and .

Avid- I have been to Mulling once- Beautiful place

Try crossing river either through a bridge just before Mulling or if lucky you would find a snow bridge at mulling .

Cross over to other side of river and find one of most beautiful medow with Tampatr forest.

Check out 2 snaps I had taken in Mulling 2 year back in Oct month

Best of Luck !

Avid,

i am Jealous of You Guys ; September is the best time to be in Kinnaur and i am stuck in Delhi!

After Litham the next camping site Khubraini (on the left bank of pabbar)is parallel to Nallahbainsh. A trekker going to Burua pass has to cross over to the left bank ahead of litham (Till now litham trail is on right bank ; for trekkers starting from Janglikh) and again to right bank in order to reach Nallahbainsh. However, people going to Gunas don't have to come again on the right bank. Gunas trail goes via Khubraini on the left bank till the Gunas waterfall.

From foot of the water-fall to the pass is long steep climb. rather than camping at Khubrain its better to move ahead and get closer to the water-fall. Best would be to camp above the waterfall and push for the Gunas next day.


Best of LUCK Avid,K.S,Mr.& Mrs. Sriram and other members! I'll be looking forward to trek pics and details of Shorang-Bhabha valleys.

Happy Trails!


P.S. Romi, Mulling pics are simply Superb!

Uttam: Thank you very much

Avid: Why there is a difference in your PDF and proposed trek itinerary mentioned above, in PDF you want mentioned Buran and in above proposed trek itinerary you have mentioned Gunas.

Where do you want to go Sangla Kanda or Barua ?

I had prepared the tabular PDF some 40 days back, when I got Uttam's blog... I want to do Gunas, but too lazy to change the PDF now
