Day 1: Drive from Kasol to Barshaini and trek to Kheerganga

Gather at our Kasol Campsite, the trek's starting point. After a 3–4 hour hike through the woods, you'll arrive at the stunning meadows of Kheerganga, where your adventure will begin. As you take in the stunning nature all around you, enjoy delicious food at the local Dhabas. Get a good night's rest in your camp to recharge for the following day.

Day 2: Kheerganga to Tunda Bhuj

A 15-kilometre trek begins in Kheerganga and passes through lush pine trees and pastures. Since Tunda Bhuj sits at the top of a steep hill, the progress is gradual and slow. Once you reach the campsite and everything is nearly up, sit under the stars, gaze up at the sky, and unwind by making up your own tales by connecting the lines. You will long for more starry evenings after visiting this neighbourhood, which is frequently the most amazing on the entire journey. Spend your night in the tents and relax in the lap of nature.

Day 3: Tunda Bhuj to Thakur Kuan

Wake up and relish the nature around. Start the trek from Tunda Bhuj and head to Thakur Kuan. It takes roughly 6 hours to trek from Tunda Bhuj to Thakur Kuan. Till Thakur Kuan, the trail continues through a scenery dotted with lakes, waterfalls, and meadows. Reach the campsite and spend the night in tents after dinner.

Day 4: Thakur Kuan to Ody Thach

Ody Thach is the place we're headed to today. A few of perilous Pandu Pul river crossings may be what makes this section fascinating. These enormous boulder ""puls"" or bridges have a stairway made of stone on one side. It is necessary to manoeuvre with extreme caution, and guides are available to help. After the bridge, the path goes straight till Ody Thach, which is a stunning meadow with the magnificent Kullu Eiger peak towering over it. Take some rest in your tents and be prepared for the next day’s trek. Refuel yourself with a good sleep after dinner.

Day 5: Ody Thach to Mantalai

The trek grows increasingly enjoyable as you follow the Parvati River. The path follows the river gradually at first, before widening as the valley and water flow do. Due to the shallow flow of the river, a marshy area extends for about a kilometre. The region is known as Chhota Mantalai. We abruptly move onto the glacial moraine and debris after leaving behind the vegetation. The glacier's snout can easily be seen. Except near the trail's highest point, where you must walk up a lateral moraine, which can be challenging, the terrain is mostly levels. After the ascent, take some time to observe the numerous little rivulets flowing across a vast area of plain terrain. The Mantalai Lake serves as the river Parvati's source. Expand your exploration of the earth, take pictures, and locate camps where you can spend the night.

Day 6: Mantalai to Pin Parvati Pass Basecamp

Prepare yourself for a difficult day as we depart from the camp early in the morning. The adventure starts by wading through a few streams and climbing a steep, poorly designated trail. Enter the rock and boulder zone at the top of the climb. Pass over boulders to circumnavigate the area. Cross another icy torrent that has recently burst forth from the glacier. We must make one more ascent up a rough slope before we reach the glacier's entrance. This glacier originates from Parvati Pass drainage. Arrive basecamp and spend the night there in tents.

Day 7: Pin Parvati Pass Basecamp to Pin Parvati Pass (17,400) to Bedu Tanch

Leave camp between 5:00 and 6:00 a.m., depending on weather and trail conditions. You'll probably be moving entirely on snow that is covered in fissures and boulders. You will reach a crest after a difficult ascent, and then you will practise snowfields. After an arduous rise that lasts nearly an hour, you will finally reach the pass. Congratulate yourself on making it to 17,400 feet, as it is a tremendous accomplishment! The pass offers a wide panorama of peaks and the valleys of Spiti. After a brief stay at the pass, get ready to begin your descent via snowfields and moraine areas in order to reach the Pin river in the Spiti valley. After another river crossing, you'll arrive at the campsite. Unwind, interact with the other outdoor enthusiasts, and have a comfortable night's sleep in your tent.

Day 8: Bedu Tanch to Tiya

Today's trek gets less difficult, but it's still quite strenuous. Enjoy Spiti's breathtaking scenery, which includes its many-hued mountains, wide expanses of open dryland, and the Pin River's beautiful flow. While trekking, you'll cross a few creeks and pass by a few shepherd camps. Spend the night in Tiya.

Day 9: Tiya to Mudh and drive to Kaza

You'll endure the chance to see Mudh village, which is located at the base of a mountain and has barley fields, while you move. Learn about the local traditions and customs by spending some time in the village. Spend the night in kaza village as your trek comes to an end the next day.

Day 10: Kaza to Manali

Check out of the hotel after waking up in the morning. Afterwards, you will drive to Manali via Kunzum pass and then be free to carry on your journey. Lead to your way with amazing memories of the huge adventure you just had!
