On this day after breakfast, we will proceed for Dayara Thatch. The trail passes through dense forests, meadows, and numerous streams coming down from the high mountains. The trek is a mix of ascent and descent apart from a decent flat walk. We will reach Dayara Thatch in five hours. To acclimatize short treks to nearby points is advisable. Overnight stay will be at Dayara campsite. Water bottles can be refilled from streams.
On this day ascending and descending trail passes through high and low meadows, dense Birch forest which indicates the last tree line on any trek, and stream crossing takes place on this day. The Dhauladhar mountain ranges with snowcapped peaks make this day trail extra attractive. It will take three hours to reach Litham. Overnight stay will be at Litham campsite.
On this day excursion to Chandra Nahan Lake takes place for the sake of acclimatization. We will start early and return back by 2.00 pm, as the weather conditions deteriorate due to its high altitude. It is a steep ascent to Chandra Nahan Lake and steep descent for return to Litham. On this day the fitness and endurance levels of the participants will be tested. The tips of very well-qualified and experienced Adventure Delight’s trek leaders will come in handy for crossing the frozen glaciers and snow wall on the way. All the participants are advised to wear micro spikes and use a trekking pole for this stretch. The size of Chandra Nahan Lake shrinks due to freezing. The snowfield surrounds Chandra Nahan Lake. The glacial water feeds this lake. We will also visit the snout of this lake, which is also considered the origin of the Pabbar River. Snow-clad mountains on one side, a huge waterfall on the other make this campsite memorable.
On this day the trail is a first gradual ascent and then a steep ascent to Dunda and entails many glacier crossings, especially in the summer season. It will take around five hours to reach Dunda.
On this day the target is to cross Buran Pass (15000 feet) at sunrise which requires leaving the campsite as early as possible. Due to the heat of the Sun, the snow melts making traversing the glaciers more difficult due to this fact it is advised to start the trek as early as possible. The trek envisages climbing a steep snow wall to Buran Pass and then steep descent to the other side followed by a series of snow slides until the snowline ends and gradual descent begins. It takes around nine hours to reach Riverside Campsite in Kinnaur Valley for our night halt.
This day trail is quite an easy descent to Barua Village with beautiful wooden houses. It will take around five hours to reach the road head from where we board the transport for Shimla. We will reach Shimla by 10 pm and the trip will conclude.
