Day 01 Manali/ Lamadugh (2727 m) (6 Km/ 4-5 hrs walk)
Start trek from Manali (2050 m). The first day of the trek leads through cool forests of giant Cedar, Alder and Oak. The trail ascends gently at first, through the Manalsu valley along the Manalsu stream. Extensive views of Kullu valley appear and slowly fade into the distant, as the first campsite in the lush green meadows of Lamadugh is reached after a steep ascent. Beautiful views of the surrounding peaks dominate the scene.
Day 02 Lamadugh/ Khanpari / Rani Sui (4 km/ 5 - 6 hrs)
The trek is through a steep ridge below the Khanpari Tibba (4000 m). From this point one can have a magnificent glimpse of Manali, situated on the left bank of River Beas, and the whole upper Kullu valley, which appears swathed in the different colors of the season. The lake at Rani Sui is a small mountain tarn with a 360 degree view of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges.
