Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Shimla-Kalpa (2900 meters)(By Road)

we drive through Kufri, Narkanda through dense forest to reach Kalpa. During this season the fragrance of Apples is enticing and luring enroute. Is home to some of the best apple and chilgoza orchards in the world. It also offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the 6050 mtrs. High Kinner Kailash range. Overnight in Kalpa in hotel.

Day 2: Kalpa-Lambar by Road (3000 meters)-

We drive our way towards Lambar village, amidst beautiful landscapes but adventurous roads. Situated high above a deep gorge, with the old village perched even higher and looking extremely picturesque. Arrive and camp for overnight. Rest of the day at leisure for Acclimatization.

Day 3: Lambar-Charang - (3500 meters) -

The trek to Charang follows the river over riverbed moraine and is mostly along the riverbed before it crosses Charang River. It is a long trek but not difficult. Halfway there is an ITBP camp where you are supposed to register your name before proceeding further. A permit is also needed from the District Commissioner of Recong Peo. We come across Kunu Temple in the way. There is a PWD rest house and a 400 year old Charang Devi temple after a 45 minute steep climb from there. Charang is the last village on this side of the Indo - Tibet border. We camp here tonight.

Day 4: Charang-Lalanti - (4300 meters) -

Today is a long and tiring climb towards Lalanti. We will start around 6 in the morning for Lalanti aware that we would have to cross a pass above 15,000 feet. The views from the top are superb. From the top one can see the small village of Kunnu which is a detour from Lambar and Charang. In the distance, peaks bordering Tibet can also be seen. The path after the pass is extremely difficult and hazardously narrow to mane uver. We have to wade across several streams. Lalanti has beautiful meadows with thousands of high altitude flowers. It is a yellow and red vast spread carpet of flowers under an open blue sky with roaring sound of gushing Mountain Rivers adds to the scenic beauty and overall experience. We camp next to stream in Lalanti. Vegetation is sparse in Lalanti. On the right, the river bed rises to the glacier point on Charang La pass (5200 meters).

Day 5: Lalanti-Charang La Base Camp (4800 meters) -

We will find ourself going through a series of gradual ascents and descents on loose rocks. We can see the Charang la pass at a distance. We will be required to ascend the moraine ridge. Breath taking views of clear sky and snow clad peaks welcome us. There is a walk over a glacier moraine till we come across huge boulders and a pond formed by the glacial water. We will see a commanding view of mountain ranges covered with snow on either side. We will also see overhanging edge of snow also called cornice. On the right ridge you can see a peak that looks as sharp as a needle. We will come across a huge glacial lake and two huge boulders of around 30 feet near the lake and a small stone temple that has a few trishuls. Trishul or trident is the primary weapon of Lord Shiva. It depicts the power of Lord Shiva. Many pilgrims who come for Kinnaur Kailash parikrama worship Lord Shiva, offer prayers and seek His blessings. We will camp near the boulder besides the glacial lake. To acclimatize we will go around the glacial lake and check the peaks visible from here.

Day 6: Charang Base Camp- Charang La Pass(5200 meters) - Chitkul - (3450 meters) -

This is the most difficult day of the trek due to a lot of altitude gain and a steep descent. The trail goes through glacier moraine, snow bridges (thin layer), rocky terrain and huge boulders so be very careful and follow the guide. After crossing several streams we start our climb for the pass. The trail is covered with snow in patches. There is no water on the trail for most part. We will see the snow slope has a steep gradient of around 60-70 degrees. The slope is challenging so you have to be very careful where you stop. The bird’s-eye view of the valley below is amazing from here. After the snow patch the trail is made of loose rocks and plenty of scree. The view from the pass is breathtaking and memorable we have serene and beautiful views of many virgin peaks, hanging glaciers and towering rocky mountains. After a quick snack we will move ahead. The trek down to Chitkul is long and steep descent. Trail passes through rocky terrain and loose boulders. The trail alternates between snow patches and rocky terrain. Near Chitkul view gets greener and better as one comes across colorful flowers and shrubs along the way which is a refreshing change. After crossing the fields and the beautiful village temple we reach Chitkul. We pay respects to the godess in Chitkul and camp on plain pastures of one of the most beautiful villages of Himachal.

Day 7: Chitkul

Today we do sightseeing around Chitkul village and it's houses with either slate or wooden plank roofs, a Buddhist temple and a small tower. The Kagyupa temple has a highly valued old image of the Shakyamuni Buddha, a Wheel of Life mandala and four Directional Kings on either side of the door. Chitkul is practically the last point of the famous Kinner Kailash Parikrama as we can drive our way back towards Powari. The powerful goddess of Chitkul is the only non-Buddhist deity to which respect must be paid by the Parikrama pilgrims. The valley is extremely beautiful, on the left bank of the Baspa River are snow-clad mountains and on the right bank the whole terrain is full of apple orchids and wooden houses.

Day 8: Chitkul-Powari-Shimla -

We go back today with beautiful memories and pictures of the wonderful trek. Hope to see you again.
