Trip description

Day 1
You have enjoyed the town of Manali?
Now get ready for a real Himalayan adventure !
This morning, after your early breakfast at your hotel, we take you in our private vehicle for a great trip !

As we leave the urban environment, the road starts climbing the slopes leading to Rohtang pass. You will be amazed by the changing environment and landscapes. Not doubt, Rohtang pass is a great spot offering amazing sceneries.

After Rohtang, the sky is clear whatever was the condition on the Manali side. We have entered the monsoon non-affected area, a highland desert.
We descent from the pass to the river Chandra, a very powerful and impressive Himalayan river. The sceneries are just awesome.
After a couple of hours we reach our base camp. We set up the camp in this wonderful environment with peaks above 6000 m hight !
Be sure to feel like at the hotel and deluxe restaurant in the middle of the great himalayan nature. This is what we do best !
