For today’s day hike we will take a taxi from Manali, which will pass through Prini village and take you up through 40 hairpin bends and drop you off at Jobri. By this time you would have already gained quite an altitude from Manali and you start your trek at 9800ft. This route is originally the first day of the famous ‘Hamta Pass Trek’, which takes you from Kullu Valley/ Manali to Lahoul Valley and up to the magical High altitude lake of ‘Chandertal’. The forest is mostly Pine with an occasional Maple tree with its new lush green leaves -a pleasant change in the vegetation. It’s an easy slope and after 20 minutes into the forest, you come to a bend with a huge rock which overlooks a meadow strewn with small rocks. Take a photo/water break at the rock and head into the meadow. As it is an easy walk you decide how far you want to walk. The route mainly involves traversing into the valley rather than climbing up. It is beautiful bit of nature that not many know of.
Duration: 5-6 hrs (Including the Drive)
